Clear Dollar Stamps Sunday Blog Hop


Happy Sunday!  Welcome to the Clear Dollar Stamps Monthly Blog Hop!  You should have made your way here from Lori's blog, which is the beginning.  If not, you'll want to go back there so you don't miss a thing!

This month we were challenged with:

What's Black and White and Red all Over?

What a fun challenge!  I obviously chose to run with the colors, but I also decided it would be fun to actually use the punchline of the joke as well.  The answer that age old joke is 'a newspaper', so I added some newsprint paper to my card with the Echo Park Times & Seasons paper.  I also thought it would be fun to use a vintage type image, since the paper has a vintage feel to it.  So, I pulled out a newer release called Walk by Faith from Clear Dollar Stamps.


When I bought my EP paper, I bought the 12 X 12 paper kit, which came with some stickers, and I've been having a good time using them on my cards along with stamped images.  When making this card I also had Ruby's Rainbow Challenge in mind which was Vintage.

Stamps:  Walk By Faith
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  buttercream, EP Times & Seasons
Copics:  W1, W5, W7, R37, R59
Accessories:  twill, stick pin, Cream Viva Pearl Pen, foam tape, tiny twinkles, corner rounder
