Sale-A-Bration is here for almost another month. One of the sets you can get FREE with a $50 order is Patterned Occasions. This set of 5 images is great for quick and easy cards.
|We made this card at the February stamp club meetings. The caption for the jeans is supposed to be "Congratulations, Smarty Pants." For those who wanted a birthday card instead, it was an easy change. We simply stamped the sentiment from one of the other stamps and did a little free form cutting. The white gel pen around the edge was a nice accent that coordinated with the stitching on the jeans.|
|The elephant with the flower is so cute. To get the multi color image from one stamp, I inked up the entire stamp on the ink pad, then took a q-tip and wiped the ink off the flower. Then pulled out my markers and colored the stem and petals directly on the rubber.|
|I had fun layering different punches behind the elephant image. Notice the scallop embossing that goes under the focal point? I used the new Borders Scoring Plate (Occasions Mini p. 26) for the Simply Scored. It's a nice way to add some texture to a card or scrapbook page.|
