I had to get some ink on this stamp right away! Last Thursday was the kids first day of school. I celebrated (not that I wanted them to go back) with a road trip to Mike's and a few quilt shops. This stamp was the first to catch my eye. Usually I can't resist buying a few of these cheap thrills but this day I stuck with the ONE that spoke the loudest.
I also happened to pick up an embossing folder on clearance, so I had two new toys to play with. I inked up my folder with a brayer and black ink before sending it through the Big Shot. I've done this before with mixed results. Today was no exception. I probably did 5 "tests" trying to keep the ink from smearing. Nothing totally fixed the problem, but once I started I had to include it in the card. It fit the card so well!
I still love stitching on my cards and I should do more of it because it is so much fun. So look out for more stitching!
