What happens when you combine traditional rubber stamping and Digital? Answer: A truly great masculine card using limited supplies. If you are reluctant to give Digital a try, this is a great way to get your feet wet.
I wanted a masculine card for my son, Bryan, who is graduating from college in May and just landed a job as a timber buyer. His major is Forestry. My tried and true Lovely as a Tree stamp set was a perfect choice, but I also wanted to add trendy sayings. Ta-da, My Digital Studio came to the rescue with Top Notch Woodcuts. Love the trendy look and the download was just $3.95!
Lovely As A Tree
Lovely As A Tree is a true classic stamp set . It's weathered the test of time as an all-time favorite stamp set. Lovely as a Tree was one of my first stamp sets and I still love it. The Baby Wipe Swipe Stamp Technique is perfect for adding a rainbow of color to my stamped oak leaves.
- Fold Baby Wipe in quarters so that you have a nice edge, then apply re-inker to edge of wipe and "swipe". Tip: Glossy White card stock (item 102599) works best. Your baby wipe will glide across the glossy surface.
- Stamp image using Jet black Stazon ink. Hint: Stazon ink is designed to work on non-porous surfaces. Heat embossing also works well.
Color Refresh-Retiring Color Products are only available while supplies last. You may have noticed that my dominant color for today's card is Baja Breeze, a retiring color. Click Here for New Color Refresh Chart
