I’m back today to share a card I made using a super cute and trendy Penny Black stamp set called Thinking of You. This set contains some really sweet images, but I was especially enthralled with the Eiffel Tower image. That’s one place I hope to visit some day. But in the meantime, it’s such a symbol of romance for me. After all, it’s where Tom Cruise proposed to Katie Holmes, right?! LOL
STAMPS: Thinking of You (Penny Black), Letter Background (Penny Black), Worn Damask (B Line Designs), Merci (A Muse)
INK: Desert Sand and Tuxedo Black (Memento), Versamark (Tsukineko), Chai (PTI)
PAPER: Kraft CS (PTI), Black Licorice CS (Poptone), White CS (Neenah)
ACCESSORIES: Classic and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders), 3D Dots (EK Success), White Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts), Black Seam Binding (Hug Snug), Janome Sew Mini
I stamped the Letter Background stamp on the Kraft CS using Tuxedo Black ink, and then stamped the Worn Damask Background in Versamark over the top of the text. I heat set that to cure the Versamark. Then I stamped the Eiffel Tower image in Versamark, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I love how it just pops off the page, don’t you? I then used some distressing ink to create the “halo” effect around the Eiffel Tower. Sweet, right? The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink onto cream cardstock, and die cut using Classic and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities. Some black seam binding and some stitching and you’ve got yourself a thank you card! I think I’ll send this off to a sweet friend who hosted the crop that I went to on Saturday night – super fun group of girlies and lots of laughs.
That’s it for me today, folks. I hope to get a bit more crafting done before I have to jump into my pre-Thanksgiving chores. But I wanted to remind you that the ABC Toys & Crafts “Sew Special” challenge is still going on, and you still have a little bit of time left to submit a project that includes sewing. You can get all the deets by clicking on the blinkie below. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you’ll drop by again real soon!
