Make It Monday #31 (Part 1)

UPDATE (11 Sept): Just added photo for the blue/green version!
I've been meaning to blog all week. I've been meaning to attempt Make It Monday, but I only just got around it!
 So with the new Papertrey Ink MIM, we had to use a non-background stamp and use it to make backgrounds. I went back to one of my fav stamp-happy, ink-happy stamp which I actually used earlier in the year when I was trying to make use of my new SU! ink pads!

So here it is:

Yep, lots of colours is what I like about this card. It's vibrant and depending on which colours you choose, you can get quite different looks with it, not to mention easily turning it to a masculine card. I'm currently making a blue/green version as well.

The HAPPY stamp I used for the background is from PTI Birthday Bash Sentiments set. I always wished there were more stamps of this style because they make fab background stamps :)
Also, I don't have a Layerz Mat Stack #1 die, so I improvised with scissors. Turns out, Mat Stack #1 is such a simple shape that it's very easy to make your own layers. I guess that means $9 to spend on something else for me! ;)

Thanks for visiting!

Super cute card. I had never seen that stamp before--now I want it. I hope you post your next card.

Love how this turned out! Only problem about blog hopping is seeing all the stamp sets I now "need" =) The "Happy" block is so fun.
