Happy Birthday, Human

The new "Lots of Bots" stamp set gets us back to the "nuts and bolts" of stamping. I used some classic techniques to put together an easy "bot-day" card. Here are a few tips:
  • To create a multi-colored image, use markers to color directly on your rubber stamp before stamping on cardstock
  • Aquapainters are great for using your ink pad to watercolor an image, as I did on the balloon
  • You can create perfectly centered greetings every time by stamping your greeting on cardstock first, and then using the Word Window punch to cut it out
  • I used the "To the Nines" specialty DSP, which is a textured, cover-weight cardstock that adds a little extra depth and class to any card
  • In a pinch, a quick and easy-to-make card keeps me sane. This card definitely qualifies for "Sanity Saver" status, cards that come together in 15 minutes or less

Great card! Love the robot image. Being that I have two boys, I know I"m going to have to get this stamp set. Plus I need to make more boy cards :). Thanks for sharing!
