I've had a card idea floating around in my head for a couple of weeks now. I kept trying to find time to make it, but that never happened. Last night I was determined to make it so I stayed up late and stamped.
I took a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock and cut the waves free-hand. When I placed the two layers of waves on top of each other, it was difficult to see the waves on the front layer. To fix that I sponged white craft ink on the tops of all the waves.
I stamped the little boat from Nursery Necessities and cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I think the "sweet one" stamp with the moon and stars coordinates well with the little boat. I've been wanting to use those two stamps together for a while now.
This week I got the Polka Dot background stamp and I'm so happy I did. It goes well with anything in any color. It's perfect to use on cards where it just needs something to finish it, but you're not sure what. I wanted to have stars all over the large bashful blue layer, but that wasn't working the way I thought it would. I used my Polka Dot background stamp and it pulled the whole card together.
Stay tuned next week because it will be "Birthday Week" on my blog. No, it's not my birthday next week. I'm calling it birthday week because all week long I will be showing the cards we made at my birthday stamp-a-stack class.
Also, remember that today is the last day to enter to win the blog candy. I'll see you tomorrow when I post the winner. ~Dannie
