Ink It Up with Leigh Penner: You're Adorkable

Life has been busy lately, so I haven't had much time to stamp.  I finally got back in the studio yesterday and made this fun little card using an adorable stamp set by Paper Smooches for the latest Ink It Up post with Leigh Penner.  We post on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays using stamps that haven't been inked yet.

I drew diagonal lines with a pencil spaced a half inch apart and stamped two different glasses from Incognito along the lines in black ink.  I stamped my sentiment on a narrow piece of Hawaiian Shores cardstock and glued it down at an angle.  Wish I had thought to border it with black before then!  I adhered the stamped panel to black cardstock that I cut with the Sunshine Layers die by Wplus9 Design Studio.  The Hawaiian Shores card base is just a bit smaller than A2, because I wanted a narrower frame of color.  My daughter Emily squealed when she saw this card.  It fits our family perfectly.   :)
