Timeless Textures will provide you with a lot of creative licenseIt’s not like having a background stamp where the design has been created for you.  Instead, you get to play with the different images and put them together however you want!

Timeless Textures (wood-mount 140514, clear-mount 140517).

If you don’t have this stamp set yet, you might want to order it soon, as I see it on the list of low inventory items from Stampin’ Up!  The other good reason to order now is that Sale-a-Bration ends in less than two weeks.  If you wait, you could miss out on more free goodies from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog!

If you like a vintage or a grunge effect, you’ll love these stamps!  If you’re not sure how to use them to create an effective design, start with some plain white paper and try different ways to combine the images.  Here’s a closeup.  Just click on the image if you want a larger view.

The colors in this card are Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, and Wisteria Wonder, which turned out to be a yummy combination.  I didn’t see room for a sentiment on the front without detracting from the design, so it makes a great all-occasions card.

Other supplies:  Butterflies Thinlits, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Linen Thread, and Blossom Accents.
