"Ace" by HighHopes Rubber Stamps

I made this card last weekend for a birthday party my kids were attending. I almost hated to part with it!

I think Ace is so cute, I had so much fun making this card! It was a spin off of a sketch challenge on Paper Craft Planet for 11-08-08. I used a new Nestabilities die for the main image and sponged the edges with brown ink and colored Ace with Copic markers.
I chose some odd colors to put together for this one. The cardstock colors are Thepapermill.com dark Pine, Nut Brown, Via Vellum Cyan, Mohawk Satin White and a Tan that I can't remember who's it is.

I chose a Cuttlebug embossing folder that I thought might have the texture of this creatures skin and used another Nestabilities tag die for the Happy Birthday stamp and added a brad from Basic Gray.

I finished the 80 Christmas card project I've been working on and need to start another project for 200 that are all the same. I need to talk to these people and see if I can take creative license and make a little of this and a little of that all year long! Who knows... they might go for it?

I've also been working around the house. The grout in the new kitchen tile needed to be sealed so I took care of that project Monday. What I thought was a job that would take "oh, maybe an hour or so"... actually took 5 hours. I've inspected every ceramic tile in the kitchen and entry way up close and personal now and don't want to do that any time again soon!

So if I'm missing that's where I'm at! I also have a design team project that I can't tell you anything about I'm working on. Sneak peaks for Clear Dollar Stamps start November 26th, I have some fun stuff I can share with you then.

Happy stamping, I'll be back soon.
