I just love this set...

It's funny how new sets quickly become favourites. I seriously cannot pull myself away from this set right now...it is just so darn fun! The possibilities are endless...of course the sentiment WANTED can only go so far...I do hope to make a few father's day and birthday cards with this set too.

Quick Tip
Use the star punch to create borders! By placing the punch halfway into the cardstock and punching you can create a fun half star border!

I did a few lil' things to this card I wanted to point out, especially for those of you who may be just learning the ropes when it comes to techniques.
1) To create a vintage/worn effect use a sponge dauber with creamy caramel ink to give an old look.
2) Have fun with Rock and Roll. You can see that I stamped the horse in chocolate chip first and then rolled the edge in basic black.
3) Stamp you star image first then line up the star punch and punch out the image.
4) Stamp on your designer paper to add more texture and pattern.



Wanted on the Range

Paper: Really Rust, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Outlaw DP
Ink: Really Rust, Creamy Caramel, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip
Stamp Set(s): Wanted
Accessories: Star Punch, Hemp Twine, Circle Punch (Marvy), Scalloped Circle Punch (Marvy), Dauber, Corner Rounder

Note: This card is 4.25x4.25


Hope you are having a stampy day!

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

Fabulous! I was toying with getting that set, but I wandered away with $200 worth of other items :O) Thanks for the inspiration!
