Two For Tuesday - Background Blocks Pinstripe

 Hello & Happy Tuesday!

I'm a little later than planned with my post today, mainly because my desk was hurried under a mountain of barcodes for most of the day - haha! It's been two years since my last show and I didn't realise how many new products needed barcodes. 

Anyway, today I am sharing a couple of cards featuring Background Blocks Pinstripe. Like all the background blocks, this stamp is no exception and a great staple in your stamp arsenal. I love using it as a quick focal point accent to florals, this time I've tried to use it in a couple of new ways.

First I went for this colour block design and added the Pinstripes in gold to add a little accent feature. I also gold embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment from Floral Vines. I think this is such a quick fun design which can be altered to the recipients favourite colour. 

For my second card I was keen to pair the Pinstripes with a floral. As my Passion Flower in the garden is still going strong, I chose Passiflora.

For this card I created a circle stencil from copy paper to stamp the Pinstripes through in black. I fancied a circle over a rectangle or square to complement the Passion Flower. 

I stamped and die cut the elements of the Passion Flower and adhered using foam adhesive. The sentiment I chose for this card is from Doodle Flowers

That's all I have to share today, I hope I have given you a couple more ways to use not only Background Blocks Pinstripe, but any of the Background Blocks. They really are good fun.
