RW&B Hello Card

Well, after unsucessfully finding a simple "Thank You" stamp image for Memorial Day, I decided to try a new stamping technique with Inkadinkado's Stamping Gear*.  I call it the re-invented spiralgraph for rubber/polymere stamping.  If you have never seen these products, you can find them at most craft stores.  Check it out!  When I start doing techinque videos, I will make sure to feature this tool. 

May, July & September are patriotic months in the United States, so the Red White and Blue (RW&B) theme seems fitting for summer.  In lieu of a memorial day card why not a "Hello" card.  Say hi to a friend, neighbor or someone you work with and want to tell them that they're awesome.  You can never have too many of those moments when life seems so short.  

This card is made with the Stampin Gear Intro Kit* from Inkadinkado.  Also, Stampin' Up's Four You* stamp set.  The "Hello" is embosed with white emboss powder on Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Up cardstock, punched with a 2.5" EK Success circle punch*.  I can never seem to get enough of Cherry Clobbler anything.  it's my absolute favorite shade from them.  The spriral graph stamping technique was alternated wtih Cherry Cobbler & Marina Mist stamp pads, both from Stampin' Up.  I aslo love wide eye lets….they just add a certain something to an empty space.  Plus, it's easy to tie a ribbon or cording through for extra texture.  The best way to attach eyelets is using a tool called a Crop-A-Dile*.  Must have for every card crafter, if you like adding metal accents.  Lastly, the croched yarn is in Cherry Cobbler as well. 

What I liked about this card was it's simplicity.  Stamped ink on a single layer of white card stock with only one simple raised circle to add texture.  I'm a designer at heart, when it's stated simple, it has a bigger impact from the receiving end.  Enjoy & Happy June!!!
