Miss You Much


I was thinking of my Marine son as I was making this. He deployed five days ago to Afghanistan. I am thankful for prayer....I can do that.

See more Design Team Creations using The Alley Way Stamps on TAWS Blog.

I used the following sets on this fun card:

BACKGROUND BASICS

I masked off a 1/2" border all around on my 5 x 5 card base using post-it notes. I used rainbow colors to ink up my Chevron bg stamp from this set. For example first I inked the bottom of my chevron using orange then inked the top of the stamp using red, huffed on it and stamped. I repeated using colors of the rainbow. I outlined it using an Ultra Fine black sharpie pen and ruler.

JIBBER JABBER

I combined the three sentiments "Miss", "You" and "Much" from this set for my sentiment. I laid them out face down on scrap paper the way I wanted them. Then I pressed my acrylic block to pick them up. I stamped them on scrap paper to make sure they stamped the way I wanted. Then stamped on my card. I love how they line up just right inside my background row.

PRICELESS JOY

Lastly I stamped two birds from this set on my card. Then I stamped them 6 times on white paper. I colored them, cut them out in parts, sponged the edges and popped them up for the finishing touch.
