Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Card Sketch Challenge: Age Awareness

Happy Monday!  We had a great weekend and really enjoyed our kiddo free weekend, lots of errands (things Aidan hates), running, and finalizing my swap projects for this weeks convention.  We also made some updates to Aidan's room so we're excited to see what he thinks, we haven't told him we're doing anything. Aidan's having a great time with his grandparents and lots of adventures.  Today I'm sharing the card I made for this month's Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration card sketch challenge.  For this card I decided to make a fun birthday card for a friend.  The cardbase is Basic Gray and I added a layer of Strawberry Slush cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Polka Dot Embossing Folder (really love this new folder).  The background DSP is from the Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper Pack.  I used the new Project Life Corner Rounder Punch on both this layer and the white stamped piece.

For the main stamped image I used the Age Awareness and Chalk Lines Photopolymer stamp sets (I love how easy it is to line of the stamps with these completely clear stamps for perfect alignment).  For a little extra bling I used some of the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the Hearts a Flutter Framelits to cut out the heart and then added a little knot with the Bermuda Bay 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

This card turned out really fun and cut, perfect for birthdays and the sayings in the Age Awareness stamp set are really fun (there's even an homage of Facebook, too funny!)   You should give the photopolymer stamps a try, they stamp very cleanly and the fact that you can for them into shapes, in the case of the lines like the Chalk Lines stamp set to create wavy images, in addition to the straight, a double bonus!

Come check out the other cards the designers are sharing and come play along for lots of fun!
