Fresh Squeezed Stamps New Release (Day 2)

Today is the 2nd day of the new release stamps over Fresh Squeezed Stamps! The new stamp set is called Subway Series: Occasions. The three large stamps in this set are perfect for creating wedding, baby and girlfriend-themed projects!

 I played with alcohol inks again! Wedding-2
This card really is easy to create than it looks! I merely inked up the vellum with alcohol inks to create a splotchy background. Then I stamped and embossed the wedding sentiment in white (with detailed, white, Stampendous).To adhere the vellum to the card stock, I simple tie a bow with jute and a silver heart brad!
For more ideas and inspiration, do check out  Fresh Squeezed Stamps and see what the Design Team had created for you!
Thanks for stopping by!
