Make-a-Card Monday: My Style Stamps

This Monday is all about My Style Stamps. (Did you know that I am on the design team for the month of November? :)) I was playing around with my stamps and created a couple of cards that I wanted to share with you.

I used a Mojo Monday sketch for this card. I cut, by hand, corrugated paper (from the sleeve of a Starbucks cup) into the shape of a tag, added the ribbon from my stash, and the image popped up on foam squares. I colored the image using my Copic markers. The pendant was cut out of Crate Paper's 'Random' paper collection. I used the Little Yellow Bicycle canvas stickers that Nicole sent me in my DT package for the sentiment. On one of the larger sizes, I swiped my SU Chocolate Chip ink pad over it until I had the coverage I wanted. Then on the smaller one, I stamped the sentiment with the same ink. My faux stitching was made with the same ink.

After I clear embossed the sunflowers from the set, I used that adorable scarecrow as my focal point. I colored him up using my Prismacolors and tied some thick natural thread around him for his belt. I die cut a Pumpkin Pie Label 9 and added faux stitching. I popped everything up on dimensionals. On the inside I used Chocolate Chip and Really rust to stamp the image and sentiment.

I entered this card into the following challenges:
The Pink Elephant 225 - Photo Inspiration
Loves Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes

This card was simply done by adhering the My Style Stamps leaf sequins to my card front. I stamped the sentiment in SU Chocolate Chip ink. Forgive the simplicity of this card; I had just gotten my DT package and wanted to make something right away. I didn't have time for much more than this but I love the way it came out. :)

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
