Rafiki: Whoo! Hoo hoo hoo! Life without worry. You seek Hakuna Matata.
Timon: Harpoon a tomato?
Rafiki: Hakuna Matata, it means "No Worries."...To find it, you must look beyond what you see.
Timon: What the heck is that supposed to mean?
Rafiki: It means, look beyond what you see!

Do you ever pick up a stamp set and study it, just stare and think before inking it up? Do strive to think beyond the normal use of the set? Look beyond what you see? Stamp It! 3 Ways from Paper Crafts is all about ways to use a single stamp set in multiple applications, and what inspiration it holds within its pages!
I'm so excited to be part of today's Paper Crafts Magazine's blog hop featuring more applications of stamp sets that are featured in Stamp It! 3 Ways. I had a card published in this issue using Grunge from Skipping Stones Design. My intent was to showcase how a typical masculine set, and a great one at that, could be used in a feminine application as well. Soft colors, frilly details, lots of textures... And I brought that same idea here today to show you!
This card features the scallop background stamp in the set. I stamped it with watermark ink, coated it liberally with clear embossing powder and then sprinkled a little bit of gold embossing powder on top of that. After heat setting the stamped design, I inked the edges, added a patterned paper panel, some burlap string and a sentiment tag.
