Wonderful You!

I got new stamps! OK, this set is not new, new. It was in the Spring/Summer catalog, but I just got it yesterday. It is Wonderful You and it's currently in the Fall/Winter Idea Book & Catalog. So last night after the UPS man came back and delivered my box I headed straight down to the studio to get busy on some stamping. I wanted to practice the baby wipe technique that we will be using at my scrapbook class this Friday. So I make a few cards with it. This is the first one I made. I used the baby wipe technique and Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, and Old Olive reinkers to ink up my stamp. I then stamped it on a piece of Whisper White. I then stamped the outline in Chocolate Chip. I adhered it to a piece of Old Olive cardstock that I distressed with my cutter kit. I then tied a piece of More Mustard 1/4" grosgrain ribbon around it and added a More Mustard button. I used my perforation tool and Chocolate Chip ink to add some faux stitching around three sides of my Chocolate Chip card base, added my stamped image, and stamped my sentiment. I love the way this technique looks and can't wait to show it to my class attendees on Friday.

On a side note I was home all day yesterday and Mr. Brown didn't deliver my stamps until after 6:00. Today, however, I was at work and Mr. Brown delivered 3 packages before 10 am. What's up with that?
