Shopping our Stash #136 - Cabin Fever!


Cabin fever...aren't all of us in the northern hemisphere starting to suffer from it about now?? I know I am. So, at Shopping our Stash this week, we want you to create something outdoorsy! (wouldn't a tropical beach be really nice right now?)

I struggled with this for a bit, until I got the bright idea to combine it with the current inchie/twinchie challenge at Jingle Belles, and  then BOOM!  I found this previously uninked stamp while I was looking for some ribbon I KNEW I HAD SOMEWHERE, and ta-da:


Supplies: image stamp from Heartfelt Creations; sentiment from Stampendous; Barn Door distress ink; black Sharpie

I failed to measure a precise border when trimming the stamped image, so I have two rows of inchies and one row of "three quarter inchies", lol! I edged each piece with black Sharpie to have them stand out more against the white background. A pretty simple card in the end but I like it!

 Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday, February 3rd hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


xoxo,
Jessi

Agreed - a tropical beach sounds fantastic right now lol. Your card is beautiful - such a gorgeous image and I do love it stamped in red.

This is such a great use of a stamp, and the inchies (and almost inchies) add such fun interest to your card! Nicely done! As for cabin fever....I'm beginning to feel like a hibernating bear! lol
