CS Make It Take It: Take a Stamp Inspiration Photo

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of September.

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

Merry Christmas (TIMI)

Man oh man, I love how this Christmas card turned out.  I didn’t want to use traditional colors, the black and white is so pretty!

  1. I knew I wanted to use Versamak Ink so I prepped my Hero Arts Black Note Cards before stamping.

  2. I used the new Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints Stamp Set and stamped it on my black cardstock using Versamark ink.

  3. I added Hero Arts Ultra Fine White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

  4. I cut my panel down to 3/4 and adhered it to the bottom of my card panel using Tombow Multipurpose Glue
  5. I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Joy to the World Stamp Set on the top portion of my card using Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink.
  6. I added white ribbon to the card base and tied a bow.

Super easy but very elegant.  I love how crispy this card turned out.

I love how this turned out!!  Now its your turn to play along with us!!!
