{ Caardvarks: MyStamp Box }

MyStampBOX is the sponsor for our next challenge.

Create a **NEW** card which incorporates the colors of our sponsor's logo - black, white, and hot pink! Have your card linked to us via Mr. Linky at Caardvarks by August 31st at Midnight. You can see the awesome prize and all the DT creations on the Caardvarks blog.

For my card I used black cardstock that I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. The stamp is Cover-a-card Large (CC007) from Impression Obsession. The Mega Mount to use with the large stamps will be available September 1. I added American Crafts paper and scalloped the bottom edge with EK Success Embossed Curve punch, it is one of my favorite punches now. The journaling card is from Me and My Big Ideas, Maya Road rub-on birds, PTI sentiment stamp, and Prima flowers.

Some of you had asked to see all the cards in the set that I made in my birthday gift post. The stamp set is from Michaels by Hampton Art called Block w/ Words & Icons. There are six stamps, and the one I did not use has a cupcake on it and it says "sweet". I have a photo, but did not get a chance to edit.
All the images are colored with Prismacolor pencils. I used a hole punch to punch in the "postage stamp" image. Let me know if you have any other questions.
