Spotted: a free stamp set

This is probably my favourite card that I made for the In Love With Stamping Cup Challenge. It was a limited supply challenge – we could use punches and any paper but only one stamp set and no ribbons or embellishments. Well that was easy for me!

So I stamped the image from Happy Moments in Chocolate Chip and coloured it using Watercolour Wonder™ crayons and blender pens. If you want to earn this stamp set for free, click here to find out how! But be quick as it’s only available during January and February.

The rather funky spotted strip is really easy to make and a good way to use up scraps. I punched the holes using the half-inch circle punch and the Crop-A-Dile™ then added the scraps behind. In fact this card is made mostly from scraps, which is why you’ll see precious textured cardstock on there!

Stamps: Happy Moments (SAB)
Cardstock: Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Ruby Red
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: ½” circle punch, Crop-A-Dile™, Watercolour Wonder™ crayons – Earth Elements and Neutrals, blender pens
