One of my newest addictions are the stamps over at the Sweet Stamp Shop and their uber adorable owner Nicole. I fell in love with them at their very first release with their Gnome set- Had.To.Have!
This set -Scootin' by- was one I kept looking at each time I was at their website but I wasn't sure how I would use it. Funny enough it is the very first set I have used out of the ones I now own hee hee. My sweet nephew had his 5th birthday the other day and since he keeps all the cards his Auntie gives him so I wanted to make him something special. Shaker card it is!
I stamped this image multiple times on my white paper and my patterned papers. I cut out different parts of the scooter and paper pieced them. I used my grey copics for the wheels and the horn and then stamped the clouds in blue ink. I used a card template I had leftover from a past project and stamped part of the sentiment on the white tag and the 'happy birthday' right underneath it. Clean and simple! OhEmGee- was that ever hard for me to do! Look at all that space that is not covered by bling or stamped images. I made a pact to myself to try getting back to my stamping roots and mix it up and do some cards 'old school style' lol. I am happy with how it turned out and I am even happier with my Scooter stamp set purchase - craft spending justified!
Hope you have a great Monday!
