Feeling Sentimental "Hi"

Hey Stampers !!

How is everyone out there on this fine Saturday ?! I am working today, but looking forward to getting home and spending some quality time with my 2 boys ! We have been super busy this week, and Brian has been going to bed REALLY early (read - before Jackson goes to bed haha) so I am MAKING him stay up and hang out tonight !! LOL But, all of that no hubby time DOES give me some time to stamp !  The card I am showing you today uses another fun stamp set from Saleabration - Feeling Sentimental. I LOVE this stamp set !! I think it is so great for more masculine projects and also for that awesome vintage style that I LOVE. Well, this card is neither of those things !! Hahahaha I just wanted to test out a few new stamp sets, and all of a sudden it morphed into a card ! Also making an appearance here is the Morning Post stamp set. LOVE THAT SET! I cant wait to really use it a lot ! LOL So, here is what I created, sort of by accident. LOL

Isn't that cute !?! I am loving it. And of course, on of my fav color combos of Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Summer Starfruit was used ... love those 3 colors together ! I stamped a piece of 3-3/4" x 5" Crumb Cake with Early Espresso ink and the supper awesome Phone Booth stamp. Lots of people are saying this looks like the Tardis from the TV show Dr Who ... but I don't watch it, so I wouldn't know about that. I see just those great phone booths from England !! I cant wait to make a great card with this stamp in RED like its supposed to be ! LOL Next, I stamped the H and I from Morning Post in Summer Starfruit ink onto Very Vanilla and punched them out with the Postage Stamp Punch. Then I cut out 2 Early Espresso squares to layer behind the punches. Looking through my stash of DSP scraps I choose the First Edition DSP and this fun Summer Starfruit polka dot from the Patio Party papers. I cut a couple of banners, as well as some pieces of the 1/4" Early Espresso Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and layered it behind my "Hi". This was then adhered with Dimensionals to my Crumb Cake layer. This was then layered onto a piece of Summer Starfruit and an Early Espresso card base. Easy and beautiful, in my honest opinion !! LOL

Well, thats my card for today ... Thanks a lot for coming by, have a great weekend and Happy Stamping !!
