Happy Birthday, Jack!

Skating By

I had fun making this card for my grandson’s birthday!  Today Jack is 10 years old.  I remember how long a year used to be when I was a kid; now the years seem to fly by.  Can anyone relate?

Stamp Set – Skating By
Cardstock – Tip Top Taupe, Cucumber Crush, Whisper White
Ink – Cucumber Crush, Smoky Slate
Accessories – Brick Wall Embossing Folder, Hello Honey, Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe, and Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Markers, Tags & Labels Framelits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

Stamping Tip:  The “weathered” looking bricks were made by dragging the Smoky Slate Ink Pad over the Tip Top Taupe cardstock that was embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.

Imagine all the different brick combinations you can get using different colors of cardstock and ink!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stamping!

  1. Hi Deb, I think you did a great job on the card but I am impressed on how great the brick wall looks. I wasn’t going to get that brick wall because it looked to perfect but the way you colored it is amazing looks totally like a real brick wall. I used to be in a swap with you, Jan Forton, a Debbie from out in AZ .

    Have a great day.

  2. I have a grandson turning 9 this month yet so yes I can relate on a few things in your post. Love that brick technique – simple yet so effective. Thank you!

    • Kelly, Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. I always hope to inspire people to use things from my blog when they stamp at home. Dragging an ink pad across paper can be used with or without an embossing folder. Each time you do it will give you a unique look – no 2 times are the same.
