I finally had some time to play around with my stamps! And, although I really need to do more of it, it felt good. I tried my hand at the popular faux chalkboard technique. I think there is so much more that you could do with this technique than what I've done, but it was fun.
This first card was done using a stamp set I received at Stampin' Up!'s annual convention this past year. It's called "I am..." and was the theme of the convention. I thought the stamp set lent itself to this technique without really adding anything.
This next card, I'm still trying to decide if I like. The stamp set I used is called Layered Labels. I used my trusty Big-Shot and the coordinating Framelits die to cut out the image. The base card is a piece of Raspberry Ripple card stock. To give it a little interest (and to try out a new tool), I added some texture using the new Borders Scoring Plate for the Simply Scored tool. It takes a little getting used to since it's not quite the same as the straight lines or the diagonal plate.
Thanks for stopping by!
