Have you ever found yourself cleaning your craft room and run across a stamp set that has NEVER been inked? How sad is that?!? I quickly gathered my supplies for a simple card ( I was in the middle of cleaning after all), and gave that stamp set some love. So no, this is not the newest stamp out there, but it worked perfectly fine.

Supplies:

  • Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko:  Memento: Summer Sky, Bahama Blue, Danube Blue, Nautical Blue; StazOn Midnight Blue, Sponge Daubers, Craft Mat.
  • Spellbinders:  Deckled Rectangles Large
  • Impression Obsession:  Spiral Flowers die
  • Stampers Anonymous:  Nature’s Elements stamp set
  • McGill:  Pine Branch punch
  • Craftwell:  eBosser
  • Miscellaneous:  White card stock, Foam Adhesive, Favorite Glue

Directions:

3. Die cut white card stock with smallest Deckled Rectangle, lightly ink edges while die is still in place with Summer Sky ink. Stamp sentiment with Summer Sky as well. Adhere to lower portion of card front with foam adhesive.
