Amber Ink Project #5

My brother got a promotion last month and I've been meaning to make him a card to congratulate him for awhile. Last night, I finally got around to it, and I think he'll like the final result :)

I had never seen a "paper, rock, scissors" stamp before, but when I saw that Amber Ink had them in digi stamps, I knew I wanted it! I spent many fun hours playing this as a kid. First I printed out the 3 images, colored them with Copics, cut them out, then wanted the rock to stand out so he'd get the congratulatory message "You Rock." The arrows helped with that, too ;)

That nice plaid paper? Again from Amber Ink...printed right off my computer. Cool, huh?

When I was done I felt like it needed just another little something, so I added the black rhinestone strip and stapled on the small piece of gingham ribbon to give it those final touches.

The cardstock is from PTI, the arrows are from a SU punch, the mat under the rock is a Nestabilities die, the black rhinestones are SU, and so is the gingham ribbon. The sentiment is from PTI's Grunge Me.


  1. Love this so much I'm gonna blog about it right now! Congrats to your brother too ;)

  2. Great coloring and such a fun card to receive, congratulations brother :)
