CPS 166 and Versatility

Enjoy the Ride is quickly becoming one of my favorite stamp sets. It is perfect for baby cards, cards for young children, teens, and adults-masculine as well as feminine cards. Perhaps best of all, it can even go vintage! That is what I chose to do today. I used the CPS sketch 166 as inspiration for this card. I first die cut the car and stamped the outline image in black. Then, I stamped the solid car image in versamark and used black Filigree embossing powder. I stamped the liscence plate on spring moss and cut it out and adhered it to the car. I also used Ranger's crackle accents on the windshield which I thought added to the vintage look. I finished off the car with some colored adhesive pearls and colored the bumper gray. The patterned paper (pp) is by October Afternoon and was the other inspiration for this card. I added ribbon around the pp and tied some black embroidery floss around it. I used Papertrey Ink's chamomile cube to ink the edges of the car and around the cream cardstock. I then used dimensional adhesive to adhere the car to the card front. This was such a fun card to make and a fun stamp set to play with!


Supplies:
Papertery Ink-stamps (Enjoy the Ride), cardstock (vintage cream, spring moss, spring rain, smokey shadow), ribbon (spring moss), ink (true black)
October Afternoon-patterned paper (Thrift Shop)
Ranger crackle accents
Versamark
Filigree embossing powder (black)
adhesive pearls, embroidery floss,
