Demask Stamp Card

I have had this stamp set (which includes 4 stamps) for a few months and haven't done anything with it...It was still in it's package!  See, this blog is already making me more productive!  :-)  I think I got it at Big Lots...You can find GREAT deals on scrapbooking supplies there!  The only thing is that you have to catch them at the right time.  I bought cuttlebug dies for $2 a piece there before (needless to say I bought almost every one they had)!  I walked out with $100 of mechandise for only about $16!  It was an AWESOME find.  They regularly carry Thickers, paper and all kinds of stamps and embellishments! 

Anyway....back to the card above...I started with a white card base that opens at the bottom.  The piece of paper is 11 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Both ink choices are from Stampin' UP!'s Earth Elements Collection....Old Olive and Creamy Caramel.  I took the largest demask stamp and stamped it in Old Olive.  I then stamped the smaller stamp over the large using the Creamy Caramel stamp pad.  I then inked the edges with both colors, attached the knotted ribbon with staples on both ends, and stamped my sentiment in Old Olive.  I added a gemstone in the middle of the design to add a little character to the card...I thought it needed something!  :-)  It took under 10 minutes to make!  I LOVE fast ideas! 

Hope this inspires you to open that stamp set you bought ages ago and start creating!  Have a great day and remember it is always homemade!!
