As promised in yesterday's post, here's another card using the She's a Wildflower Hostess Only rewards stamp set. I'm tellin' ya, the current CTMH catalog has some fabulous hostess only stamp sets (including the hippo from this post).
This is pretty straight-forward. The only thing you need to know is that the background image doesn't cover a full 4.25 x 5.5 size. So...I turned it sideways and stamped it twice. The image is so busy that it's really easy to line up edges. I colored with Prismacolor pencils then topped it with a panel of white cardstock cut with Rectangle Stitched Thin Cuts. I tilted the panel and trimmed off the edges.
The sentiment was stamped in Black Pigment ink then topped with Clear Embossing Powder...except I apparently have some white embossing powder mixed in with it. I was pretty unhappy with that but not so much that I decided to toss the whole card. New clear embossing powder is going on my shopping list! And this time, I'm going to make sure I use a dedicated container so I never get mixed powders again. Grrrr!!
Like it says, it's a FLASH sale and things go in a flash!
And if you - or you and friends - order over $150, you'll qualify for the hostess only stamp sets.
And if you come back tomorrow, I'll have another card for you using the hippo hostess rewards set.
Until next time,
