No Place Like Home Card

I'm sharing a card I created featuring Hampton Art - Graphic 45 Magic of Oz stamps. To keep the card girly, I used Dorothy and her dog, Toto and some paper ribbon that I stained. The card was fun to create and not difficult.

The card started with light brown card stock then I attached some packing paper that had a punched shredded texture. I used it because it mimicked the look of the yellow brick road pattern of the Graphic 45 stamp. I adhered it to the card stock and spread it apart to show the brick road effect.

The paper ribbon was a fun piece found at a local second hand store; I inked the paper ribbon with Tim Holtz Distress Stain - Tumbled Glass, bunched it up and glued with Glossy Accents. The Nestabilities oval die is sprayed with Tattered Angel's Glimmer Mist Chalkboard Medallion with a little bling from my stash. The ribbon was white so I sprayed it with with Glimmer Mist - Frozen lake and gave it a little heat from my heat tool to dry.

  1. Judy, your card is really cute! You've got some nice texture and dimension going here. :) Those G45 stamps are so cute. I am a Wizard of Oz freak and love them! Your "faux" yellow brick road using the brown packing paper is a clever idea. I also really like your distress paper ribbon behind your focal point of the die cut oval. I really like the colorful fibers you've added as well. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
