How much are your cards worth?

Priceless

I'm not gonna tell who this card is for -- cause she might look here and it will spoil the surprise! Isn't this stamp too fun! You could have all kinds of sayings with it. It's from Penny Black and is called "chic chick." The sentiment stamp is from Stamping Bella.



I put Crystal Effects on the nose.....er...umm...beak! LOL It looks cool. Notice I didn't put ANY sparkle or glitter on this one. Do you think it needs some? hummm....not really sure. I also used more of that paper from my HUGE supply that I got at Costco. I think it's like the My Minds Eye series or something?? I wish it was the thicker double-sided stuff. Oh well.



I got the idea for this card from jojot on SCS last year. Finally got around to ordering the Penny Black stamp not too long ago. Now...let me see...if I add up all the supplies needed for this card it would cost....hummm....OH I'm SURE I'm saving money!

Recipe:
Stamps - Penny Black chic chick; Stamping Bella sentiment.
Paper - SU Marigold Morning and Naturals White CS; Bazzill Textured CS; misc patterned paper.
Inks - Ranger Adirondack Pitch Black; SU Marigold Morning Classic; Prismacolor markers; (I forget what brown ink I used.)
Mics. - Bazzill Flower; SU Photo Corners Punch; SU Spiral Punch; Edge Distressing tool; Misc. Rhinestone Brad; Dimensionals.

Cute, cute cute! LOVE the "sentiment"! I have to laugh when I think back to when I first started stamping...I would convince my DH that we were going to save so much money because we didn't have to buy greeting cards any more! Well .. we stampers know the rest of the story!

Super cute card. That sentiment goes perfectly with the image. I think I may be the only person that didn't get that paper stack ... wish I did ... very pretty paper.
