A little while ago Libby Hickson asked me if I was interested in being a guest designer for Hambo Stamps. I had met Tim and Monica at a Copic Certification last year and of course was excited and honored to say yes!

For my sample I picked the digital image Silly birds of Hats. I printed it out on and cut it with a Neenah Solar White cardstock Classic Circle Nestabilities die. The image was colored with Copic Markers (sorry, I colored it during vacation and I can’t find the piece of scrap paper I wrote down the color codes).  The circle was then adhered to a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Eyelet Circle Nestabilities.

A 2″ x 5″ strip of Echo Park Summer Days paper was adhered to a 4 1/2″ x 5″ piece of a different paper pattern of the same line. The layers were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of black cardstock. Turquoise ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 5″ x 11″ piece of More Mustard cardstock, folded in half.

A another pattern from the same pack was cut and embossed with a smaller circle Nestabilities die and adhere to the upper right corner of the card base. A swirl was created out of Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones on the upper left side before the image layers were adhered to the center with dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from Hambo Stamps. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Solar White cardstock before it was cut and embossed with Petite oval Nestabilities and adhered to the lower left hand side.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
