New designed card

Well it was about a perfect weather day you can get today! We headed out to Point Pelee for another day of birding and saw a couple of new migratory birds we had not seen yet. We got there about 11:30; ate our lunch and hit the trails. We walked and walked and walked until about 3:00 when we took the tram up to the tip of the park…this gave us about a 10 minute wait for the tram and a 10 minute ride…; walked around the tip and took the tram back and hiked some more. We finally quit about 5:00 and stopped for a coffee and banana before heading home. I love being out in the woods!

Today’s card was made with a stamped image that has been sitting in my “I’ll finish these some day” pile….I’m now cleaning it out.

Our local scrapbooking store, The Paper Pickle, used to rent out stamps. I won a free rental so I went looking to see which one I wanted to rent. Joe was with me and he decided he liked this one and talked me into getting it. I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I stamped it several times in different colours and different mediums. I have used a few of them but I still had 3 or 4 left over…..and I’m making them into cards!

This one was heat embossed with sparkling blue embossing powder on white cardstock. I simply inked over it with blue Distress Ink; sprinkled on some water; waited a few seconds and blotted it off – that makes those lovely soft white droplets. Then I put it in my Tim H stamp positioner and stamped the sentiment. It was then mounted on a blue card base. I have no idea what manufacturer made this stamp but now I wish I had bought it! Go figure right? If anyone knows who made it, please leave the info in the comment section.

That’s all for a lovely Wednesday, May 16, 2018.
