Stamping Up Only Card

When I first saw this sketch I ran for the hills!  But then I won some paper on Christine's blog and sure shootin', there was a piece in there that was perfect for this sketch!

I went for a more masculine card due to the bold circles.  Even dug deep into the bowls of my stamp cupboard and found this great Stampin' Up set that hasn't seen ink in years!!  Must say it was tough lining the sentiment parts up as I am so used to using clear stamps where you can see where you are stamping!  Couldn't find my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line things up so practiced on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped it for real on a hope and prayer.  Lucky for me, the stars were aligned as it was straight LOL!

As I was typing up this post, I realized this is a Stampin' Up only card!  Don't remember the last time I made one of those!  Nice to pay tribute to the company that got me into stamping :)

GREAT masculine card for sure! I don't have enough of those in my stash. That dsp was some of my fave from a few years ago! Love it!

Love the boldness of those circles and the "vintage" stamp :) Stampin' Up got me reaquainted with stamps as I had been stamping since the 1990s when all we could do is emboss! LOL Times have changed!
