Hello again, my friends! How’s the weather where you are? It has turned out to be a little chilly here today but I LOVE it – I’m so ready for cooler weather! I’ve popped back on this afternoon to share another website sample I created for Prickley Pear Stamps using the super cute Emma Numbers and Emma Lowercase Alphabet Letters clear stamp sets. OMGoodness, the possibilities with these stamps are endless!
I created this card in a timeless classic color combo of black and white with just a pop of color here and there. There are three sizes of numbers in the Emma Numbers stamp set, and I used all three sizes to create the background. I colored the open areas with my drying-up fine point Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens and added a touch of Clear Star shimmer. Using the Emma Lowercase Alphabet Letters stamp set, I created the sentiment element using a couple circle punches and a scalloped circle die. The finishing touch was the addition of a few small iridescent gemstones.
I embellished the inside panel with a narrow panel of stamped and colored numbers, a thin strip of black cardstock and a die cut sentiment, and layered the panel on black cardstock.
And another look… totally loving how this turned out! I did re-do the sentiment element because the original rectangular one I made just didn’t look right. The circular one made all the difference in the world! ;)
