happy birthday…

I just realized I didn’t share this card last month when it was featured on the Two Peas “A to Z Stamping Event!”  Can you guess which letter this card was for?  You’ll never guess…unless you have been following along with the stamping event.

Give up?  It was Q.  Yep, Q.  Q is for QUICK!  Sometimes when I'm creating a card or a layout I find that I just need a little "something" to pull everything together and make it all look cohesive. That's where this QUICK stamping technique can come in handy. All you need is a solid accent of some type (a tag, a journaling block, etc.) and a background stamp.

On my card, I wanted to add a cute little mini bag filled with birthday goodies to the front, ...but the solid bag just seemed to stand out way too much, so I inked up a background stamp, in this case I used a definition stamp, and stamped the bag.

I think it would have been cute to use polka-dots too. :)

After adding the embellishments, tying with string, and filling with sticker "goodies," I stuffed a bit of tissue down inside the bag to give it a little bit of dimension and attached the bag to the front. :)

Be sure to visit the EVENTS page over on Two Peas to see all of the fun stamping projects that were featured during the Stamping A to Z event! :o)
