Betting on Stamping 411


Aloha, all!

Herewith another challenge for the week.  This week the Stamping 411 Challenge was a really simple design.  The bad news was that I knew exactly what I wanted to do, then I couldn’t find the stamp set I wanted to use!!  Where is it???  I cleaned up my stamp room before my trip to Minnesota, and, now that I think about it, I don’t remember ever seeing the set.  So–it’s in a tote bag somewhere, and it’s going to drive me nuts until I find it!!!

But I digress.  I still wanted to do the challenge to keep my hand in my stamping until my box of new supplies arrives tomorrow afternoon (yay!!).  So I reverted to a card similar to one I made when the stamp set, Tart and Tangy, first came out in 2008.  While everyone was making shiny oranges and lemons and limes, I kept seeing those cherries on Vegas slot machines!  Couple with that was my need to find something to use with the stamp in Sincere Salutations that said "Good Luck."  I mean, when do you use that greeting on a card?!

To add a bit of newness to this card, I used the Sizzix Stampin’ Up Curly Label Movers and Shapers die to make an opening in the top Real Red layer of the card.  I punched the cherries with a 1-1/4" Square Punch and the Glorious Green mat squares with the 1-3/8" Square Punch.  Before I affixed them to the card front, I stamped the cherries using VersaMark to make a watermark on the Real Red layer.

Now I’ve got to go look for that stamp set (will tell you what it is when I find it!)
