Two Weeks?!?!

I can't believe it has been two weeks since I posted last. Wow! Time flies. I only have one stamping project that I have worked on in those two weeks. And it all happened this past weekend. I made 56 cards for the Michigan SCS get together that is coming up at the beginning of March. I don't want to show the finished product until after the event, but here is a peek of what they looked like in the middle of the assembly and stamping.


That is the card base with 55 of it's friends stacked up next to it. In front are the cut pieces for the main image. The stamp on the card base I got at http://www.starvingartistamps.com/. It is the Ornate Tooled Leather Background. I love it! I bought the unmounted rubber and then I put it on ez mount cling foam. When I went to use it I realized I probably didn't need to do that. When I stamp with my backgrounds I do it upside down. So I lay the rubber, image side up on my grid paper and then I ink it up. Next I lay the paper on top of the rubber and fold my grid paper over top of that and rub all around to make sure the paper is pressed into the rubber image. The base is Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, and Creamy Caramel. The background was stamped in Really Rust ink on the Creamy Caramel and then the edges were sponged with Really Rust. More to come on the finished card later. I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek. And I will try to make a whole card that I can show you this weekend!
