I’ve used our Ex Libris stamp today to make a quick and yummy, vintage Christmas Card. And this is another one inspired by a sample in our demonstrator magazine!
Was a wee bit scary stamping this big stamp in BLACK, but I stamped it using my fingers rather than my palm, giving an uneven, antiqued impression. I like it!
Don’t you love how the image is also perfect as an “address label” on our Crumb Cake Envelopes?! So cute!
You can just barely see it, but in both samples I’ve added a dash of Dazzling Diamonds. Glitter looks great on vintage when done in very small amounts!
I had to look it up~! What does Ex Libris mean?
“an inscribed bookplate, especially in a decorative way”. Clever Stampin’ Up!. What a perfect name for this beautiful image!
