The Stamps I Use

You're a star

Hi folks

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my nephew. I usually make him either an end of school year, summer or beginning of school year card. This year....well, it's kind of a combo end of school/summer card.

As usual, he had a fantastic report card and, even though he isn't really into summer sports (he's more a computer geek like me), I thought this would be a fun image to use so I could use this sentiment. He really is a star in my books!

I've actually had Baseball Oliver (Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps very own boy of summer) for ages but it's my first time using it. I actually had to put it on EZ-mount because I hadn't done that yet. Yay for using a stamp that hasn't been used yet!

  • finished size: 5x5 inches, white card stock base
  • patterned papers: Echo Park "A Boy's Life"
