Enjoy The Moment Birthday

Hello stampers,
     The card I have made for today is using a set I got for attending a Stampin' Up! event back in November & yes I'm just now using it for the first time. It's not normally a set I would have picked from the catalog so I had no idea how to use it since I had no idea what these stamps were. I found online a few people had labeled each stamp in the set so they knew what it was, so I went ahead & penciled in the names onto the paper that the set comes with. I finally just said heck with it & started to play with it in hopes of coming up with at least 1 card. Remember, I said a month or so back that my intention was to use every set I had at least once, mission accomplished on this set.
     I started this card with an Early Espresso Cardstock base, then added a layer of the retired Wood Texture DSP. I stamped onto Very Vanilla Cardstock one of the stamps in the Enjoy The Moment Stamp Set using Soft Suede Ink, then using a Blender Pen to color it in from the actual ink I used (I hope that makes sense). I wanted to have a sepia type of look so I used one of my Blending Brushes (first time, WOOHOO) to add some color around the edges with Crumb Cake Ink. I then added this to a layer of Early Espresso Cardstock where I then attached Faux Suede Trim to 2 corners, I really haven't been an embellishment type of stamper for a while but decided I wanted to add something to it. I then took a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock & stamped one of the sentiments in the set with Early Espresso Ink then went over it with the Blending Brush before putting the card together.

  1. I have to say this set was not a creative spark for me but I do love what you did with this card. I love the wood grain paper behind it and it has a nice masculine feel to it. Great Job on almost getting me to like this set.
