Inkadinkado from Creative Play Stamps



Laura, the owner of Creative Play Stamps sent me a couple of Inkadinkado stamps to play with, and I LOVE them. I wasn't expecting a package, and when I saw who it was from, I knew that Laura was spoiling me again! So, I opened the envelope, and out came two GORGEOUS new stamps, this is one. CPS has a big selection of Inkadinkado, there are 60 of them, and I want every single one!!

I made this card for a Dutch Dare Card Challenge, my first with them! We were to make a love/Valentine's card with no pink or red. I grabbed Cosmo Cricket's Love Notes, and some Bazzill Bling and went to town! What a fun challenge, I think I'll play again! The tag is a Basic Gray Sublime tag. The holes were too big for my Karen Foster Loopy Brads, so I grabbed one of my SU! circle punches and made another circle to put it through. Oops, dangling preposition there-see, even the English teacher does it!

I would like to note that this card is much WARMER! My camera has been cooling things off for me, there's too much blue in everything. I lent it out, and I swear, it's going to take me a week to get the settings correct! (Actually, 17yods will get it set, not me!)
