There is something exciting about stamp building, and I can't quite describe it. Solid image meets cardstock, enter stamp positioner, and lay down the outline. Viola! A lovely two toned masterpiece. Love it. I know, I am silly...but I get a little excited about stuff like that. I used the latest Runway Inspired Challenge for my inspiration, you can check it out here.
All of that black and white, angles and XOXO, had me going in a clean and simple direction. I stamped my XOXO from Studio Calico's May card kit in Lady Bug red and overstamped the shadow in black. I then took some hearts from the Darling Sentiments set and stamped those, adding tiny rhinestones for a bit of glam.
I ran a strip of white cardstock through the Big Shot with my Linear Embossing Folder from Lifestyle Crafts (NOTETOSELF at checkout will get you 20% off) and adhered a bit of black cardstock to its side. I then popped it up with foam and rounded the bottom right corner. Tada!
