Can’t be beet

Yes, there were many puns when we made this card last month, and to get to the root of the matter, they did grow on me.

I hope you’re not wondering if I’m obsessed with faux postage!  Not too much — just right now, with some of the new images!  This card is a variation of a swap I participated in at Stampin’ Addicts and of one I sent to Stampin’ Up! for a contest.

I’ve uploaded this template to my Resources page for you (a pdf file) here.  The templates are very easy to make — just create a text box the size you need, changing the outline to dots.  Create another text box (no outline) into which you’ll type the stamp’s denomination.  Group the objects so they don’t separate, then copy and paste them to fill your page.

I use a transparency with a slightly smaller rectangle cut in it as the mask.  Sponge very lightly, and remember that the ink on the transparency is easily picked up by your fingers and transferred to your almost-finished, beautiful work ….

Stamps:  Homegrown (p. 115)

Ink:  StazOn Jet Black, Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand

Paper:  Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla

Other:  Aqua Painter, assorted Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Stampin’ Sponge, 1¼” Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (Basic Black), Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, postage scissors

    This is so great! The ribbon is the zinger, that’s for sure. My first thought was that this could be turned into a valance in a kitchen area.
