One More Offbeat Card

Using the Split Coast stamper's sketch challenge for this week, I finished off the Offbeat collection from Basic Grey.  I sometimes get stuck using the same stamps with certain types of paper. It's like some designer papers just calls out for a certain stamp. This paper really went well with the Cheap Talk stamp set.

Project notes:

  • Rather than stamp and cut out the stem from the stamp set I cut the stem using the Cricut which is always more precise than I am.
  • To keep some of these light colored pattern papers from blending together I put everything on white mats. For white card stock I often use a ream of white card stock I purchase at the office supply store.  It isn't that great for stamping but wonderful for typed journaling or mats and it is really inexpensive. 
This cheery card reminds me of all the birds we have visiting our feeder. We're enjoying lovely warm spring like days. It's been so nice to get in some outdoor walking and work on my resolution to 'get moving.'

Ingredients: Stamp set: Cheap Talk by Stampin' up!
DSP: Offbeat by Basic Gray
Card stock: Baja breeze
Ink: Baja breeze, pumpkin pie
Cricut:  Straight from the Nest


  1. Yes, those stamps and papers seem to be meant for each other. Love your springy card. Spring is nowhere to be seen yet around here, sigh.

  2. Spring is on its way and your card fits right in. Its bright colors and birds. TFS
