I love stamping…no shocker there! And I love a challenge!
So when I saw the Moxie Fab Stamp It! Cards Challenge – I knew I had to play!
You’d better get over there and play too…the grand prize is amazingly awesometastic…and all you’ve gotta do is make a stamped card! How tough could that be?!
My first stamped card is actually a SET of stamped card (you may or may not know this…but I have an addiction to sets of cards!)
With the summer months upon us, I am looking forward to attending lots of fun cookouts, picnics and dinner parties. And, because my mother raised me on the teachings of Emily Post, I know that the proper thing to do is thank the host…twice. Once in person and again by phone or with a written note.
Now, God would strike me down right here in the middle of this blog post if I sat here and told you that I always abide by this rule. I don’t. But there is no better time to start than now. And there is no better way to start than with a cute set of summery thank you cards!
These one layer cards are stamped from front to finish…no embellishments, no dimensional adhesives…just stamps and a little coloring.
|I started by stamping the bottom with
PTI’s Background Basics: Gingham in red (pretty self-explanatory)
|Next, I stamped the picnic basket and food using
PTI’s Vintage Picnic set
|To make those little ants, I used the tiny dots that are included in
PTI’s Fruitful set…who even knew those were there?!
|To give those little guys something to carry, I reached for
There She Goes Stamps’ Daily Grind set to add that sweet little pie!
|Last up, I used Taylored Expression What’s Cookin’ ? set to add a
little cherry to the ants’ bounty as well as the perfect “Thanks for Dinner” sentiment!
I hope these photos are helpful!
