Some New Goodies!

It is always fun to combine a bit of stamps you own with some fresh new elements. I distressed some SU Naturals Ivory CS to use as the base of this card and added some of the wonderful new cardstock from Inque Boutique’s Memoirs Mini Paper pad assortment. To create the subtle wave border, I used the new Cabana mini stamp set with one of my favorite blue inks...Whisper's Starry, Starry Night along with Chestnut, Black and copper embossing on the rest of the elements. It is extra fun when you get to design stamps, then use them on your projects. Here, I used the “100% my guy” Lil’ Stamp I designed for Inque Boutique along with elements from the Build-A-Tag set. Adhesives are all from the Glue Arts’ Crop & Glue line. I couldn't resist adding the skull from Inque’s Awesome Mini Set next to the word adventurous since my husband likes cycling, and that can get pretty risky when riding in big groups. He has the battle wounds to prove it! This was the card I made him for Father’s Day. The inside is stamped with some other stamps from the tag set, the Enthusiastic LC mini alphabet and some handwritten words to read...Guaranteed 100% (repeated many times) a terrific dad. You’re a natural. I will post the inside on my Inque gallery.
