Happy Birthday Card Using Market Street Stamps

Happy Earth Day! Today, I am going to share a card I made using a variety of stamp sets from Market Street Stamps. I decided to make a card that had more of a masculine feel to it. I wanted to use bright and bold colors that really pop against the grey shark. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to create the waves in the water. The shark is from the "Ocean Fun" stamp set. I accessorized the shark with a party hat from the "For All It's Worth" stamp set, and the sentiment is also from that set. I used the "Here Comes The Sun" background stamp for the sunburst background. I stamped the background on yellow card stock, then embossed it with clear embossing ink. Then I used some different shades of orange and red ink to color the sun. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

Score-Pal and Market Street Stamps

Happy Friday! Market Street Stamps and Score-Pal have teamed up for an inspirational week. I love both companies, so I am very happy to share my project I made. Score-Pal is an awesome company, I absolutely love their score boards. They have a large score board in addition to a smaller board which is perfect for cards. What I like about these boards are the deep score lines, which is perfect for super thick cardstock. I have tried many other scoring boards, and Score Pal is honestly my favorite.

I made a little stationery set using both Market Street Stamps and the Score-Pal. The box was created from a 12 x12 piece of cardstock, and it fits A2 cards perfectly. I used the Score-Pal to make a decorative band for the box. I also used the Score-Pal to create the envelope with the liner in addition to the card with some scoreline details. I used the "Riding By" stamp set from Market Street Stamps. I colored my bikes with Copic markers. I wanted to keep the cards simple, since most stationery sets are usually simple. This box can easily fit 5 cards with 5 envelopes.. so it could make a perfect gift!
