I am a big fan of stamp sets that have a greeting or two included because I think they have more versatility.
I am also a big fan of the single stamps from Stampin’ Up! because they are a great value.
I am not such a big fan of single stamps with the greeting included because it can be hard to omit the greeting when stamping. But the good news is that there is an easy fix – your stamp, your way. I often remove the greeting from the stamp so each can be used independently as I did on this card.
To make this card, I stamped the Baby Bumblebee image onto Whisper White card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then colored the stamped image with Daffodil Delight and Skin Tone Blendabilities. I cut out the image with the Circles Collection framelits using the 2-3/8" circle. I punched a 2-1/2" circle from Basic Black card stock and layered it behind.
The Honeycomb embossing folder was used on Daffodil Delight card stock to make the front of the card and a strip of black polka dots from the Neutrals Backgrounds designer series paper stack was added. I love this paper stack and use it often.
Lastly, I stamped the now separate greeting onto a strip of Whisper White card stock and adhered it underneath the patterned paper. A pearl colored with a black permanent marker finishes the card.
To customize your stamp, carefully cut the greeting from the rubber stamp with scissors. Adhere the greeting to one side of the wood block as shown. Then cut the greeting from the image label and adhere to the opposite side of the wood block.
