It’s that “Time of Year”….

…hostess stamp set!!  Okay…confession time….I am OUT of birthday cards and have been slacking on making any more. So yesterday I hunkered down to make a small stack. Here is a super easy card I came up with…

Time of Year Birthday Card

I didn’t have any striped paper that fit the look I was going for so I made my own. I made the stripes using the back of one of my photopolymer stamps! Just find a stamp that is the right shape and size, ink up the back with whatever color you want, and voila..custom stripes!! Cool, right?  It is a great way to stretch your stamps. My stripes are second generation stamped.  That means that I “stamped off” the stripe on scratch paper before I stamped it “for realz”.  I got a lighter image that fit more with my design that way. As you can see by this close-up, the stripes are not “perfect” but they were the look I was going for.

The background was made stamping balloons from the Balloon Celebration stamp set with Craft White Ink on our new Dapper Denim In-Color cardstock.
