Be Original

Hi There!! Happy Sunday!!  I'm still having fun with our New Release stamp sets and have a quick and easy card to share today that I made using the Wander & Dream set. 

Overall, this card took me about 15 minutes to make.  I kept the design simple, used one layer of images and one ink color, and added rough machine stitching to create this warn & old timey looking card. 

Mr. Tex here is from Wander & Dream and the stars are from Chalkboard Wisdom-I stamped them onto kraft glassine with Potting Soil Archival and punched out with my 1 3/4" square punch.  Then, I balled up each square to get those wonderful wrinkles. 

I attached all of the squares to a piece of kraft card stock with small pieces of double-backed tape and then ran through my sewing machine to add the rough stitching.  I added the small talk stickers and mirrored star, then attached the panel to a kraft card base. 

There you go-A quick 15 minute card using the wonderful, mixable & matchable stamps of Artistic Outpost!  How about mixing & matching your AO stamps and bring your creations to our monthly Show Us Your AO Art Challenge?  There's the chance to win a $15 gift certificate towards a purchase of AO stamps!  You've gotta be in it to win it, so come on over!!
