Hey, Cutie Pie!


Today i have a card for Sweet Stamp Shop's Use What You Have Challenge. I almost missed this weeks challenge i thought i already did a post for it, but i soon realized i hadn't even taken pictures of the card yet! You have until tonight to play along, so get hopping!! LOL

I wanted to use the Spectacle stamp set and i had the perfect chipboard shape in my stash of embellishments. I need to take a new photo of my embellishment stash, this picture was when it was on the floor, its now in a new container and on a shelf!

I started with a kraft cardbase and and stamped the big glasses with grey ink all over the cardbase. Next i used a kraft die cut that was on my table already. I stamped the sentiment Hey, cutie pie! in black ink.

Then because the die cut was getting a little lost with kraft on kraft, i used a black pen and drew lines around the edge of the shape.  I also added a stripe of vellum (also just hanging out on my desk!) This helped break up the busy background. I added some rhinestones at the top and bottom of the vellum.

For my chipboard eyeglass i used some black ink spray, to get the insides and edges i used tweezers and sprayed all the sides nice and good. (while my spray was out i also did 2 other eyeglasses to use in the future!) Last i adhered the eyeglass to my die cut and adhere that to my cardbase with foam tape!
