If you can't tell by now, I REALLY like stamping these Thomas Kinkade images monochromatically and black/white is my favorite combo! Plus, they make for a really quick & easy card with a lot of pop.
This is the vignette size of The Open Gate that I posted yesterday -- which is just a smaller section of the stamp that has been reduced in size a bit and put into an oval shape with a rectangle frame. Now, if you don't like that rectangle frame (and maybe think you'll never use it that way), then you can certainly just cut that part off your rubber stamp OR mask it before inking it. In tomorrow's sample, I just masked it off.
The image was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black -- I've found the Versafine line of inks to the best at retaining all the fine details of these stamps. It is stamped onto Neenah Classic Crest-Solar White cardstock and cut with just a paper trimmer. The black scalloped rectangle frame around the focal image is Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangles. The image is popped up on dimensional foam tape and accented with clear crystal stickers.
The sentiment is also a new Thomas Kinkade release and was selectively inked and stamped onto Solar White cardstock with a black marker (the original sentiment is in one line). Then the sentiment was cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles and matted with a Scalloped Nestabilities Circle; it is also popped up on dimensional tape.
A piece of white-edged black sating ribbon finishes off this card.
