My 100th post!
Here's my card for the featured stamper today at SCS. My son's birthday was yesterday. He lives about 3 hours away and we are not going to be seeing him for another week or so...But I needed to make him a card and when I saw this card done by Kristen aka eberlinek ~ thankful sails I thought it would be perfect for this stamp I have. Of course it is my second choice, the first card which I normally pick I was a little perplexed by. I just went back and checked on the card and it is also a FS card. I don't think I'm suppose to do that! I changed the colors, orientation and stamp.
Back to my card. I used some delightful new DSP from GCD Studios I picked up somewhere in my travels. It has a nice sheen to it. I also used Early Expresso, Whisper White & Cajun Craze. The stamp is called Motorcycle from Stampin' Up! part of the last mini catalog. I think they should have kept it, it very masculine and useful in my case having a hubby and son who both like to ride. I stamped the image in black and used some glitter brads using my new "brad setter & piercing tool" from We R Memory Keepers.
I highly recommend getting this tool. Works like a charm. I was always getting hurt using my fingers and this tool takes all that away! Works quickly. And does not mess up your paper.
Thanks for looking and have a great Sunday. In case you read this far, I have a surprise for you. If you leave a comment and mention that this is my 100th post I will mail you a brand new stamp set from Stampin' Up! called 'Plant Hope' along with a couple of other goodies.
