Here is my project using some beautiful Hampton Art clear stamps!!
The stamp set I used is called Carpe Diem by Hampton Art. Its a clear stamp set so that made it super easy to stamp the background on the Baja Blue cardstock using Baja Blue ink. The birds were stamped on ivory cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and cut out. The sentiment was stamped onto a Labels 28. While the cardstock was still in the die, I used a sponge to add color around the edge of the die. Then I stamped the sentiment. I layered that onto a Decorative Labels 28 in the blue and kraft cardstocks. I added some white seam binding and a couple of white paper roses that I sponged with the blue ink, also! To finish off the card, I added pearls in the corners and stickles to the birds!
This was a fun card to make. I love to stamp and that is actually how I got started in this crazy crafting world! Sometimes it is so great to just create for fun, isn't it? Plus I used some of my crafty hoard!! You have until April 20 to participate in this fun stampers challenge! Be sure to link up your project HERE on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.
