Oh What Fun!

Just a quick post...I wanted to share this simple little card I made using some of my new(ish) Amuse stamps. It's so fun inking up new rubber!! And, I made it for no reason at all. It's been a while since I stamped without doing it for a challenge, or a tutorial, or MOPS, or a blog hop, or.... It was so nice just to PLAY!

The card base is a standard A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"), using Amuse's Classic White card stock. I love that stuff...it's super sturdy, and stands up to being a card base easily, even if you load it down with embellishments. I stamped a circular pattern along the edge using PTI's Lemon Tart ink. Above the yellow stamped border, I stamped the sentiment using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.

On a scrap of the white, I stamped the pinata image, and colored it in with Prismacolor pencils. That was added to a punched square of yellow and a scalloped square of Tangerine Tango using foam tape, and they were all added to the card with another layer of foam tape. To finish it all off, I tied on some Tangerine Tango striped grosgrain. QAS and EPLS! (that's Quick And Simple and Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy, in case you were wondering *wink*)

Have a fantastic weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
