Masking for Basic Grey

Happy Friday!!!

I made a bunch of these cards using the Stampin' Up Label Classic set and the Linograph Background stamp. I masked the Label Classic and then stamped the background. I have a ton of Basic Grey Birthday rub-ons. The cardstock is the now retired Stampin' Up Purely Pomegranate. I did a call out to the peeps over at Splitcoaststampers and I had a number of responses so I'm comfortably stocked up on that gorgeous color. I love to team it up with black, the contrast is so fabulous.

Any fun plans for the weekend? We are having yet another Holiday Gift Show on Saturday. Wish me luck...

oh gorgeous!!! I drug out this bg the other day and had it so crooked on my cs, I went to plan 'b'. Your card is so fine with the linograph. Did you use a black for the ink?

We've got Boy Scout Christmas tree lot duty for a few hours tomorrow...might have to swap if my sickie isn't much improved.

Happy Weekend to you!!!

Oh how adorable!!!! Love that label stamp!

So, how'd cleaning go? My hubby would love a Dyson but it's got to wait. I am trying to decide between a le creuset or an all-clad set. I've been putting it off for the last 5 years, ha!
