I was in Minnesota this last week end spending time with my creative friend Annie. Three of us went to the Scrapbook Expo. We all stimulated the paper/stamp/die industry very well.
One of the booths I enjoy visiting at the Expo is the Rubbernecker Stamp booth. They have so many stamps and dies and fun stuff. I am sharing two of my new stamps with you today. The background is a floral type swirl and the birthday sentiment.
I based my card on the current sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
I used my distress oxides (yes - once again - I am using my distress oxides - I love them - what else can I say) to make my background. I colored two pieces of Bristol smooth card stock. One is light and one is darker to provide the two colors I needed for the sketch.
I also flipped the sketch.
I stamped the floral swirl in black VersaFine ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
The sentiment was stamped the same way on the darker paper and die cut with a circle die. Another circle die was used to cut a mat for the sentiment. The main part of the card was also matted with black. A thin strip of the black and white stripe from My Favorite Things divides the two colors on the base.
Here it is in another color of distress oxide inks.
I am also entering it into the current challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps Challenge Blog where the current challenge is Birthday.
Thanks for stopping by.
