Yesterday was a stressful day and I just needed to stamp. Stamping is a GREAT stress reliever by the way! I also needed some inspiration so I checked out this week's sketch challenge at Stampin Addicts and found this one.
This is the card I made using some new stamps, paper and accessories.!
To make the focal point I used one of the little filigree vine stamps from Tiny Tags. I stamped it over and over around the edge of the white cardstock. I ended up with an "oval" in the center. Then I sponged it to add depth.
Now let me just say I purchased this set Wood Mounted and wish I had it in Clear Mount because it is sooo much easier to place the stamp where you want it. But I still love this set cause it is so versatile.
And if you look closely at the butterflies you can see how they are raised embossed. This was all done with my Big Shot and the new Butterfly Embosslit. These little butterflies are perfect for an additional accent on your project!
I also stamped the tiny tag with "friends" and then because it is tiny (thus the name), I attached it to the bow with a small safety pin. I was very proud of myself to think of that! It sure beats threading something through the hole and tying it!!
The saying is from the Sale-a-bration stamp set Whimsical Words and the paper is Welcome Neighbor, also from Sale-a-bration! Can't beat FREE!
