I got some cool stamps at the rubber stamp flea market on Saturday, and yesterday, I inked a couple of them up.

I need to work on getting crisp, clear images with the very large background stamps, so if you have any advice on how to do that, please leave a comment and let me know! However, this "distressed" look worked for me. I cut the image down to fit on my card as my card front. I then stamped the "delightful" stamp on a scrap of patterned paper and cut it out using my large circle punch. I added some ribbon, a Prima, and a button that I sewed on. I also used one of my Sakura glaze pens to add some flower centers to the stamped background stamp. This is just a quick, easy, and simple card.

I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
