Hi there stampers!  It’s been a while since I’ve posted and there has been a lot going on that has kept me away from my craft room.  One change you may notice is with my website.  I had a complete re-haul of my design along with moving from Blogger to WordPress.  I am still learning all the tricks with the new website but wanted to get a post out there to say hello and get back into the swing of posting on my blog.

For today’s card I am using one of the FREE stamp sets you can earn during Saleabration.  This stamp set is free with a qualifying $50 order and the deadline to get free product is quickly approaching – March 31st.  This particular set is called Epic Celebrations and I just love all the fun, playful images in this set.

I started with a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and repeatedly stamped the sneaker image using the same color ink.  I then stamped the cluster of dots using Bermuda Bay ink and added white ink splatter.  I added some shading to the sneaker images using a white watercolor pencil.  I stamped the sneaker image onto some scrap Whisper White cardstock using Memento Ink and colored it using my Stampin Blends.

I then fussy cut out the image and adhered onto a piece of vellum oval die cut along with the heat embossed sentiment.  This was added to the front of the card along with some strips of glimmer paper, striped paper, and cardstock.  The entire card panel was adhered to a card base made from Bermuda Bay cardstock.
