10/18 Stampin' Down Memory Lane

We just got back from a long weekend at the cabin. I had fun with Steve and the kids and some stampin' fun, too . . . "just playing" with my stamps. This set was from 2004 and it was called, "Hope Is." I think it was a special set created in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I made a few cards with this design to sell at an Holiday Craft Fair later this month.
.
I outlined the edge of my main panel by taking my ink pad and edging it directly onto the panel. It makes a nice, kind of "artsy smear." To make this panel pop even more from the busy background paper that I found in my "stash", I layered it over a slightly larger panel of card stock vellum.
.
Hope you had a nice weekend as well, and thank you for stopping by my blog!
