A Special Birthday
My oldest son will be celebrating his birthday this week. I received (earlier than expected) a super package of stamps yesterday from Inspired by Stamping. I had already made a card quite a while ago for my son but could not wait to ink these stamps so I made him another one. They are such super, masculine stamps. Everything on this card is IBS stamps except the star which I punched. I punched a brown star and then punched another and cut it down to fit over the first one and inked it by swiping with my blue ink pad. All ingredients are in my recipe below.
I'll be entering my card into these challenges:
Inspired by Stamping WHW #114-Anything Goes-also there you will find a wonderful tutorial on prepping your new IBS stamps.
I'll also enter my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery Contest for August.
My card is also going into the Inspired by Stamping August Blog Hop-Create a masculine card
Wow! So many ways to win with this company.
I'm playing for the first time at newly found (for me) Alphabet Challenge Blog-N for newest stamp or decoupage. Got my new stamps in the mail yesterday and immediately made this card. What a fun challenge.
I'm also playing at Sweet Stamps #131-Anything Goes
I guess this will have to be it for me for this week. Don't think I can play again until next week. If not,
hope you all have a grand weekend. I'll be celebrating my son's birthday with the family. Hmmmmm...birthday cake! :-)
