Sweet Stamp Shop Grand Reopening


Sweet Stamp Shop is having a Grand Reopening Celebration and I am a guest designer for the event.
I used the


stamp set for my card. I stamped the saying with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with sparkly blue embossing powder by Stamp N Stuff. Then I die cut it out with an X Cut/Do Crafts die and inked the inside with Ranger's distress ink. I also die cut the next largest die to mat behind it. 

The background is a stencil by Dreamweaver Stencils. I ran it through my die cut machine {Cuttlebug} to emboss the pattern onto my white cardstock. I then taped the paper and stencil to my work surface and brought in color with my ink blending tool and distress ink. I matted the background onto the blue cardstock and then onto my card base by Recollections with an 1/8 of an inch gap at the top and bottom. 




Thanks for looking.
