Pines Fir Yew - CASology and Rubber Dance Stamps

I'm still crawling out from under snow, but CASology has given me plenty of time
to play and stamp! This week's cue card is: FOREST.

I started with a little masking so I could work with just the edges of my card. I used three different Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Fossilized Amber, and Mermaid Lagoon) to ink up these fabulous rubber stamps sent to me by Rubber Dance Stamps. They make great impressions, hold ink wonderfully, and I love the design of these pine firs (not to mention the name- Pines Fir Yew)! Then let the ink blending begin. My sentiment is from their oh-so-pretty scripty font set Beautiful Words. My favorite part is always the reveal of pulling the masking tape off :) 

Time to get lost in the forest of DT ideas on their blogs. And don't forget to say hi to our guest designer and check out the online shop and blog of our sponsor this week!
