An interesting and beautiful way of using stamps

Colleen here with the February card challenge with an interesting and beautiful way of using stamps and embossing folders.  This technique is so quick and easy you will want to make many cards using this technique.

We have a prize of a small baggie of goodies from the Design Team plus FREE SHIPPING for one order at (Sorry, free shipping is to US mailing address only; $5 discount to international addresses.) All you have to do is complete this challenge and complete the following items listed below and your name will be entered.

  1. Become a Follower of this Blog;
  2. This must be a new layout/card
  3. Provide a link to your blog in the comments so we can see your beautiful layout/card; and
  4. Have your layout/card posted by the end of the month.

I learned the best way to create this card is to first use the Perfect Crafting Pouch over the area you want to stamp.  The Perfect Crafting Pouch helps your ink stick better to the cardstock and not smear. 

Then pick out the stamp you want to use, ink it up and stamp it on the cardstock.  Next emboss the stamped image, you can use whatever embossing folder you like. Once you have that done use The Best Glue Ever to adhere all the layers down. 

 I decided I was going to turn my card into a birthday card, so I used a die to cut out the oval shape and another die to cut out the words.  I used The Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap to adhere them down.  If you have never used the No Clog Writing Cap I am telling you it is the best thing ever for adhering words and titles to your cards.

I hope you give this challenge a try and post in the comments so I can go check out your card.
