Now let's get on with the Stampede!



Today, I'm featuring the Rewind stamp set which is a fun retro set, complete with a cassette tape and tons of fabulous sentiments. My card features the cassette tape, which I heat embossed in gold on vellum. I trimmed it out and arranged it with other vellum shapes. I stamped the sentiment with teal zeal pigment ink and popped it above the bunny. She's from Carnival Cupcakes (+ Creative Cuts) and her bow is from Carnival Toppers (+ Creative Cuts).


Everything is adhered with various types of adhesives, except for the two hearts, which was stapled using a tiny attacher. I added a gold enamel dot to coordinate with the other two gold pieces on the card. The various layers of patterned paper were hand-cut à la Jocelyn Olson. It really looks so much better than using all straight edges. ;)


Your next stop is our newest design team member, Ashley Marcu! Thanks so much for hopping with us and be sure to visit the Mama Elephant Blog on Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. EST for the first day of Stamp Highlights!!
