Encouragement- Broke Stampers Unite Challenge

Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features a Broke Stamper Unite challenge.  This weeks challenge is making cards of encouragement. I made two cards this week.  A masculine and feminine version.

My card stock is a base of Cajun Craze, a layer of  Island Indigo and Crumb Cake.  I used the coordinating ink pads and candy dots.

The second card I made was a little more feminine.  It uses the large Swallowtail stamp.  Ifstamping with stace encouragement swallowtail you or someone you knows likes butterflies, you NEED to get this stamp!  It makes stamping so easy.  This card has a base of Basic Black with layers of Calypso Coral and Smokey Slate.

I stamped the image onto the Smokey Slate, a little to the left hand side.  I tore the right hand side and aged the edge with Calypso Coral.  I also used the Calypso Coral ink to stamp some texture using the Timeless Textures stamp set.  Another MUST HAVE!  The inside was stamped with Banner Blessings.stamping with stace encouragement
