Happy Times

Hello, Jeanette here from the design team. I'm so glad you've stopped by the blog today. 

It's Story Time!

Red Rubber Stamp

This vintage looking stamp is just precious. Look at all the detail. And what a sweet time that mom is having with her son and daughter, reading to them from a favorite book. 

Instead of coloring the clothing, I opted to add some light color (blue) to the lines to create some shadows. I thought this allowed the rest of the image to stand out, as well as the details of their clothing. 

I considered adding some Antique Linen to the edges of the die-cut circle to enhance the vintage feel, but decided against doing that, thinking the white would make the image the focal part of the card instead of blending into the busy designer paper.

I rounded opposite corners - for some pizzazz, added some pearls for embellishment, and the simple design is complete.

I hope your day includes time for stamping as well as time for enjoying a good book. I know I try to make time for both every day.
