I stopped in at Michael's on Tuesday to use my 50% off (JoAnn's) coupon, but all I got was this dollar stamp and some tape for my ATG gun. I thought I'd give the stamp a try.
Here is how the card came about:) I used markers to ink up the stamp. It took six of them - not sure if I'll use the stamp again or not! I stamped the image on a scrap piece of white, then found a scrap piece of turquoise to mat it with. I decided the edges should be punched, so I used a Fiskars punch. The punch can do just the straight edge or it can do a corner, also. I did one side, then while doing the other side, I pressed the wrong piece and made a couple tiny dents. Oops! Hence the ribbon - covered it up nicely. I happened to notice my crimper, so I used it on the turquoise piece. The white piece got smaller when I punched it, so the matting could get smaller with the crimper. Without thinking of what the image was, I just dug out a birthday sentiment. As soon as I stamped it, I said, "Duh! That's not a birthday image!!" So I stamped a new sentiment and figured I better add a little punched border so it didn't look "added on." (Even though it was!) I mounted the entire panel on Dimensionals and poof - the card was done!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
