So I was enticed by a $15 coupon of first purchase at One Kings Lane, thanks to Mish, my crafty friend from NY. Browsing through their website, I made sure I got this stamp by Yellow Owl Workshop:
The kit came with an ink pad and a red pencil. Remember how we used a pencil to rewind a casette tape? I really like the concept of this kit.
I have been into anything "casette tapes" lately. It's a big staple of my youth. In fact, there's this top I bought last summer and I wore it in one of our band gigs.
I was excited to play with my new stamp. I really like the size - 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I ended up with a mini card set using the exact same box it came with. I was relieved to find envelopes that would fit the box. And since they are small manila/kraft envelopes, I decided to use kraft cardstock as base for my cards as well.
I ended up with 24 cards with matching envelopes, and they all fit perfectly in the box. For more variety, I stamped with 6 different colors from the ColorBox Petal Point dye ink set in Provence.
And since the stamp kit came with a pencil, which I really don't need, I added the pencil to my card set. I made sort of like a holder for the pencil, which also gave a 3D effect on the cover of the box.
The polka-dot kraft paper? That's actually Unity Stamp packaging. I embossed it with matching QuicKutz polka dots embossing folder.
I sure enjoyed making this card set. And I love the latest addition to my stamp collection.
