Journey Oliver

Happy Monday, all! Thank you so much for your kind comments and for participating in my giveaway. I politely asked Mr. Random.org to help me picking a winner and here is his pick:


Congratulations Sanne!!! You are the winner! =) Please email me your snail mail and I'll get the candy out to you as soon as I can.

On to today's card. Here is a card that I made using stamps from The Greeting Farm and Stampers Anonymous to share with you.


I paired the lovely Oliver from the OA-Journey set with the world map stamp from the Air Travel set.


I thought that they work together perfectly. I was looking for a map stamp and really liked this set from Tim Holtz.


Oliver is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, he is then colored with Copic Markers. The map and sentiment from the OA-Journey set is stamped on the kraft card base with vintage photo distress ink. After cutting the colored image out, it's then pop dotted over the map. A few buttons strung with Desert Sand Button Twine finished the card.

That's all I have for now. Hope you have a lovely day! =)



Thanks for stopping by!
