One By One - My first blog post!

Hello everyone! I’m Joe Morgan and this is my first blog post as a Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team member. I have a strange sense of humor, as you will see in some of my postings. For this project I decided to make a card using three stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps!

To start out, I stamped the crazy lady and the gnome on white cardstock with black Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers and then cut them out. I cut the window frame by hand with a razor and then inked it with a cat’s eye pad. I cut the thought bubbles with my electronic cutting machine. I used blue Distress Ink to color the piece that goes outside the window. After that, I just assembled the pieces as you see here in the finished card. The crazy lady and the large thought bubble are adhered with pop-dots for extra dimension.

Here are the item numbers for the stamps I used, and they can all be found at the Viva Las Vegastamps! Online Store.

Gnome in Mushrooms 17244
Hear No Evil Lady 4271
One by One, The Gnomes 17230

I hope you like what I have shared today, please remember to keep checking back for more ideas. Feel free to visit my blog on the Create & Craft site and say hello by clicking here!

Hi Joe! I guess you and I share the same humor... I too like to use the Viva-stamps for strange mixing together and give the persons 'weird' thoughts (which aren't so weird in my mind *teehee*) Can't wait to see what you'll come up with next!
