Simply Stamps Day

It's Simply Stamps day here on my blog.  This week rather then an ABC project, [anything but a card], I made an actual card, along with a tutorial on how I made it.

Here is the finished card;

To make this card, I used Simply Stamps the Victorian Pineapple and the Happy Birthday stamps.

Card Tutorial:
Step 1; Using a MISTI, take off the actual stamp layer and adhere it to the MISTI.  Do this for both the stamps.

Step 2 - Using the Color Box ink, Hunter Green, stamp the Happy Birthday.

Step 3 - Using the Metallic Pigment Gold Plate ink, stamp the center pineapple.

Step 4 - moving the card panel 5 graphs to the left, re stamp the pineapple. [I cut graph paper to fit on the inside of my MISTI for just this purpose.]

Step 5 - move the card panel [from the original position] 4 graphs to the right; re stamp the pineapple.

Step 6 - Emboss the pineapples using clear embossing powder.

The Finished card again;
You will note that I have the HB on a separate die cut circle?  Unfortunately, I smeared the original.  The plus to making cards is most mistakes are fixable!  I simply re-stamped the sentiment on another piece of card stock, cut it out, and adhered it over the top of the original stamped image.  All saved!

And of course, I finished off the back of the card with my personalized self inking signature stamp!

Terrific card and isn't it a lot of fun to "save" a card from the circular file?

I love it. Simple but with a flair of elegance. Also a great "save".

Lovely card! What font did you use on the back "created by" stamp? I'd like to order one. Thanks

Love the super, clean look to this card Vicki! I think that the circle die cut with the sentiment on it actually adds to the design! Great save! Have a lovely day! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx
