Let's talk about Sarah
When I saw this cute amuse stamp this weekend (yup - another road trip to Ink about it) I knew I had to get it for Sarah. A women shopping at the store convinced me to get this sentiment and I'm glad I did. The two go well together and they are perfect for Sarah's birthday card.
The paper is from Basic Gray. This is my first venture with this line and I'm becoming a huge fan. The card base is retired SU River Rock with some Old Olive DSP as a mat. The ribbon is old olive, then dusty durango and then pretty in pink. I've never layered on three ribbons, but I love the color combination and thought it worked. The book/coffee image was stamped twice on PTI white and colored in with copics. One image was cut out so it could be glued on top as a layer. I had to use a dimensional to hold the book image up just on the top - otherwise it would have been tilting, so 1/2 of the image had a dimensional and the other half had a glue dot. The steam from the coffee is enhanced with a clear embossing. The white at the bottom was done with a punch. I think that and the little glass beads add just the right element of sparkle to an otherwise toned down card.
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
