My card today is made with a fes myStamp Box stamps along with a fun technique I haven't done in a while. I really love the way this card turned out and I hope you do too.
First thing, you can find all myStamp Box stamps online at the myStamp Box store. They have a fun variety of great stamps to choose from. Then if you want to see them used head on over to the myStamp Box Blog and check out what other DT members are doing with them.
My card today uses the Mini Alpha Stamps and the Mini Pennants stamp sets. My pennants are heat embossed with the alphabet stamped out of the embossing. I stamped the full pennant with Versa Mark ink and covered it with myStamp Box embossing powder in the usual fashion. Before I heat emboss the image I take one of the letters and stamp it into the embossing powder and pull it straight up. Then I take my heat gun and emboss it. Now if you were to do this technique on colored cardstock and white embossing powder you would be done because the letter stands out from the embossing but because I did mine on white cardstock I needed to accent my letter with some color. I reached for my distress marker, Spun Sugar, to color in the letter but you could use any marker that you fancy.
I sewed a line to connect the pennants together using a back stitch and some pink floss by Karen Foster. The rest of my sentiment is stamped on brown cardstock using white pigment ink and embellished with a EKSuccess heart sticker.
The patterned papers are by Echo Park and Martha Stewart and the border punch is by Fiskars.
Thanks for stopping by.
