Think Spring!

Happy Sunday, everyone! I went to Walmart over the weekend and they had a bunch of Studio G clear stamps (like you can get at Michael's) for 10 cents each. I grabbed about 6 of them because I didn't want to take all they had in case someone else (like me) would want some too. I made this card using one of the new stamps. Love it!

  • A2 size card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Sutdio G clear stamp for bicycle
  • Bicycle and sentiment both stamped with Stampin' Up Ruby Red ink (I have about 30 ink pads from Stampin' Up that I bought in the 90's and they STILL will stamp well!)
  • Sentiment matting is a Stampin' Up punch called "Modern Label" adhered with foam tape for dimension.
  • Cardz TV Stamps "Think Spring" stamp set
  • Butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. I added a clear rhinestone to the body, adhered it with tiny glue dots in the center and folded up the wings a little for "flight."
  • The grass is a combination of green and brown chalking.
  • Washi tape across the top.
