Today’s card was inspired by one of my new stamp sets by, My Mind’s Eye. I got this new stamp set at the Scrapbook Expo and I was super excited to give it a try. As soon as I saw this stamp set I just HAD to have it. There are so many stamps in this set that I just adore. There is a doily border stamp—love!—and there is also a really cute sentiment that says, “You have my whole heart for my whole life”. I thought that was so cute. Plus the rest of the stamps in this set are super cute as well. The things one can make with this set are endless.
This time around I wanted to make a cute, yet simple card. So I used one of my elegant paper stacks, some Kraft card stock, Ivory card stock (for the sentiment), and silver embossing powder for the stamped image. I’d decided a while back that I didn't want to work with acrylic stamps anymore because I didn't like the quality of the stamps—but when I went to the scrapbook expo I saw tons and tons of stamp sets that had images I just couldn't live without. Therefore, I told myself I’d figure out a way to get the best stamping quality; and, I decided to use versamark + embossing powder or chalk inks for all my acrylic stamps. The reason why I didn't want to use acrylic stamps anymore was due to the fact that photopolymer stamps are simple WAY better and you can use any type of ink and still get amazing clean and crisp stamped images. I think photopolymer stamps spoiled me, LOL. However, now that I’ve figured out way to still get beautifully stamped image out of acrylic stamps I’m happy, hehe.
Check out how the silver embossing powder shimmers in the light—so beautiful.
Here is the stamped sentiment on the inside…aw how cute, LOL.
Thanks for stopping by for another Card of the Week!
