Lindsay's Stamp Stuff...And Freebies For you!





Today I am sharing two cards with you. The first, I used this week's sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches, and made an anniversary card for my parents. Thirty-one years! We should all be so blessed/lucky! The background of the card is Basic Grey Wisteria, then I used a scrap of light blue distressed graph-style paper for the triangle, and attached a border underneath the edge that I made from a shimmery white gold cardstock from Wasau paper, with my Martha Stewart doily edge punch. I attached a pale yellow scalloped oval that I cut from the Storybook Cartridge. To finish the card-I printed the Filled Butterfly digistamp from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff on a transparency, then used Broken China and Silver Stickles for the body and antenae of the butterfly. Added 3 small pearls, and I think I came up with a pretty anniversary card for my parents!

The second card was just for fun. I wanted to fulfill the Dare You To Digistamp Friday Challenge, and this week's was "distressing". So, I made this shopper silhouette from some clip art, to be cut on my Cricut with SCAL. If you would like a copy of this svg, click here. I used the Shopping Bags digistamp from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, and printed it out on different paper scraps, which I shaded with Copics, and decorated with various gemstones/glitter pens/Jolee's. The chipboard sentiment and ribbon are from Die Cuts With A View, and the background for the card is shimmery Wasau cardstock. I distressed it by inking the edges of the card and chipboard with Tuxedo Black Momento ink. Thanks for dropping by, now hop on over to the other design team members' blogs to see what they have in store for you! One of these girls has a free digistamp for you, but you have to find it!
