Hey There!


I was excited to play with these stamp sets today!  They are just so much FUN!  I based this card on Clean & Simple's Sketch #99 that you can play along with here. I have always loved library card images!  I worked in a library for fours years during college and so when I saw this $5 PTI library card image, it spoke to me! LOL!

Here is the sketch this was based on:


And, here are some more details:


I stamped the ruler image (another image that has been on my wish list since I first began stamping YEARS ago!) on the ticket die border to get a fun border effect.  A fun fact:  the markings in this ruler are true to life!  So, on the image, the 1 inch mark is truly 1 inch, 2 inch mark is really 2 inches, etc!  How cool is that!

And, look at this!  I'm talking about the ticket edge and that score line on the notebook paper.  LOVE!!  Nichole Heady is just pure genius to design a die that will do this and look so authentic!


Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed this card!  Thank you again for your comments too!  They just make my day!

  4. This great, Jen. I'm waiting until CHA to purchase all the new July release stuff and it's so hard, especially now that I'm starting to see people posting stuff with the new goodies. I can't believe you fit all your new goodies on one card! Way to go!

  5. Jen! You used your new goodies! I love your color combo (Harvest Gold!) and the creative way you used everything--ruler tickets, hot pink library card, notebook die sideways and torn--so many good ideas here!!!

  6. Jen, this is awesome! I love it! My package came today and I am too tired to even peek inside. But this wonderful eye candy may just make me get up off the sofa!

    I wore my button ring to work today and some coworkers asked for your website - I hope you hear from them!
