Birthday Party-Block Party

Here is the second of the three cards that I made for Andi’s I Haven’t Used It swap on SCS.  We were to ink up some stamps that have never seen ink or it has been a long time since they have been used.  This is another set that I do not remember when I last used this retired set, if it has ever seen ink by me.  I too think I got this from my demo after it retired when we get to chose one stamp set for every $50 ordered at her retirement party—I guess I placed some significant orders during Nancy's retirement parties J

I stamped the image twice—once in Not Quite Navy and a second time in Crumb Cake.  I then cut out the Happy Birthday section from the Crumb Cake image and placed it over the same words on the Navy sentiment.

I have this same set and they've never seen ink either. But you've just provided the little nudge I think I needed. Great idea & layout for this one. I like the color combo too. Cute buttons also!

Look at all the fun you are finding! I really like this card. They way that you combined the colors on the stamped image is perfect.

It's amazing what great stuff you can come up with when forced to use it. I have seen that stamp before and never been inspired by it, but your card looks great!!

Oh, I love that stamp (and that's one I don't have). I like how you have the crumb cake and not quite navy colors both on the image. Great idea to cut out the crumb cake color- it's much easier than trying to ink up the stamp using markers.

Very nice card Barb!!!. I love the colour combo. I better start looking at my stamp pile. For sure I have lots that didn't see the ink yet!!!.

I like the colors you chose for this! Great stamp to ink up and use. Good idea on stamping twice and just cutting out the sentiment, it looks great
