Lots of dots



I dots. I'm hoarding a ton of Bo Bunny dotted papers in assorted colors, and I have over two dozen stamps with dot designs, not to mention several dotty embossing folders.










And I didn't hesitate to buy yet another dot stamp--Hero Arts' new cling Dots (CG139). It's a card sized stamp and I wanted to use my favorite technique by Jennifer McGuire to create colorful backgrounds.





I think dots give cards a whimsical touch and I know I'll be using this stamp to make even more dotty backgrounds.


Stamps: Pure Innocence digital images,
Hero Arts cling, Hero Arts sentiment
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up
Ink: Distress Inks in Faded Jeans, Pine Needles,
Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick;
Memento Tuxedo Black; Versamark
Other: Copic markers, clear embossing powder,
Assorted Nestabilities dies, ribbon, pop dots

I have them in EVERYTHING I can get my hands on! I also have HOARDED the Bo Bunny dotted paper, too............you're my little "soul sister".

I better start USING them a little more after seeing what you are creating. Thanks for the inspiration, Donna. I get that same "warm and fuzzy feeling" that Ivy gets, too when she visits your blog.
