Thank You

A little something for Memorial Day.  Although the people being honored on this holiday are dead, this is for the parents and widows.
This card is done with the Let Freedom Ring stamp set that a•muse studio sells.  This follows the sketch at Blessings Ink and these others:

Paper Tape

I was wandering through Target when I came across this package of paper tape - 9 different rolls, 6 meters per roll, for $6.99.  Good deal, huh?  My first thought was that all the colors would look excellent on Kraft cardstock, so I immediately had to put together a card.

The stamp and sentiment are from the dollar bins at Michaels.  I paper pieced the little duck, and heat embossed the sentiment - I love white on kraft!

Aud Sentiments - any sentiment
Sassy Studio - hat
Paper Pretties - bold bright colors
Ruby's Rainbow - things with wings
TandaStamps - something new (paper tape)

Inchie Card

I have terrible luck with teeny tiny stamps.  I invariably lose them, either by physically misplacing them, or forget where they are.  However, I don't think I will lose these a•muse studio stamps  - they come in a tightly closing case with an index image on the front.  They are perfect for these inchies!
If you are paying close attention, you might notice a little overstamping, but with these flying insects, it looks like fluttering!  I made this card for the color challenge at Blessings Ink and these others:

Sympathy wreath

When I got this a•muse stamp, I immediately thought it would fit perfectly inside a punch that I own.  I started stamping bunches of flowers and punching them - it was a very zen process.  After I had them all, they just started arranging themselves into a wreath.
The white text on pastel seems very peaceful to me.
