June 15, 2010: For You Card

Pin It Now! This is one of the cards we made at the last Stamp Camp. I can't believe how the stamps and ink layer together to make the amazing focal image. In true Heather Westlake form, the secret to this card is both simple and attainable; the front is made from office labels!

Now tell the truth, you didn't know that until you read it, right? I sure didn't! Leaving the labels on the sheet they come on makes this technique super simple. The ink sticks to the labels, but not to the carrier sheet.

We stamped the sheet with the new Elements of Style stamp (in the current Stampin Up mini) in black Staz-On, then hand rubbed two colors of purple and one tan ink color to make the lovely, rich background. As a final touch, we stamped a french script background stamp over the whole thing. The sentiment is from Elements of Style too, I think.

Thanks for checking in on me today. :)
