Vintage Baseball


I received my new Whimsy Baseball Conner stamp early this week. It has been resized to be a little smaller than the original. I really love these stamps for the very sweet and detailed images and for the wonderful way they are packaged. They come already E-Z mounted and with a laminated, printed card to store them on. I love the convenience.

I have been really neglecting my Distress Inks these days and I don't want to lose the knack of coloring with them so that is what I have used. I decided to go for a vintage baseball look. I just used various shades of browns to color my image. I have kept the look of the card very plain and clean so that the image really pops out! The sentiment is from Stampin'Up and I love the fact that it fits perfectly in the scallopped circle.

I am entering this in the new Whimsy Stamps Challenge which is to create a card for a special occasion. I think this is the perfect birthday card for a guy! Hope you can join in as well. There are already some beautiful entries!

Thanks for stopping by! I have been busy stamping up a storm today so I have quite a few projects that I will be sharing with you in the coming days!
