Inspired By Stamping Washi Tape Chalkboard Card
I recently discovered Inspired by Stamping stamps and their blog challenge here, and today I am sharing a holiday card I made with some of the stamps I just got in the mail from them. I visited their website after seeing a card on another blog, and oh em gee- I wanted sooo many of the cute sets I saw. Wait 'til you see the Mason Jar sets I bought... but that will be in another blog post. Today I am sharing another favorite set I just received from Inspired by Stamping- Holiday Washi Tape stamps! The candy canes in the corner of the card were stamped on vellum, cut out and attached over a card base embossed with a new embossing folder by Sizzix. I also used a snowflake washi tape stamp across the top of the chalkboard I created with black cardstock and smudges of white pigment ink. The sentiment- also from Inspired by Stamping- is perfect for the chalkboard technique and I stamped it in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder and a heat gun. The "chalkboard" and the red layer were cut out with Nestabilities dies. I added a candy cane eyelet to complete the front.
I used the snowflakes washi tape stamp again on the inside of the card and another sentiment from the same holiday set. As you can see, I love to emboss the whole card - not just the front- for texture on all parts of the card.
I am also entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
