Paper House Cardstock Stickers - STCX-0061 - Rome
Bon Voyage stamp - Michael's $1 bin - Deep Lagoon ink
I used the Acrylic Mega Mount block by Impression Obsession to mount the CAC stamps. I learned in classes with I.O. that when doing the multiple stamping with these CAC stamps for a background, to start with the lightest color, then darker. There's a good video at the I. O. website. I'm not great with using stickers, but when I saw this set, I knew exactly on what card I could use them. I used a S/Binder rectangle die to cut out the center of the cardstock front after stamping with the CAC's, embossing around the space (which doesn't show well here). I adhered a teal c/s piece (ah, those handy snippets!) underneath, then stuck the Rome sticker to that. The other stickers are places I know will get visited on the trip. Be back later with a few pictures of 'around the yard' photos. Thanks for dropping in this afternoon. Hugs.
