After lunch I was excited to have a few free hours to myself this afternoon and couldn't WAIT to get home to create. I printed off a bunch of challenges that I wanted to participate in and sat down at my scrap table to really crank something out. And I sat..... and I sat..... I started out intending to create a card for one challenge and I began to go through my stamps looking for just the right one. I pulled out about three stamps. Then I sat some more.... and I sat...... hmm....... not feeling this at all. I kept going back to one stamp (a new one that I've never used before) but it didn't really fit the sketch I was going to use. I threw aside the sketch and just began creating something on my own using the colors from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.
The quilt stamp is from Stitch Wonder (C1564). This great little set has 5 different stitches on it plus 2 quilt squares and a sentiment. I stamped my stitching in Pacifica using the masking technique. First I inked only the stitches using the edge of my ink pad and stamped it onto the card. Next, I stamped the quilt square onto a sticky note and cut out the center. Using the piece with the stitching on it, I then stamped the stars and hearts in the cut out area using Pear, Sky and Buttercup inks.
The sentiment on the card is from You Are My Happy. This is an exclusive set of THREE D-size stamps available ONLY until September 30 for a special price of $10 when you place a $50 purchase.
