The Lampost


Today's project is a long, tall card is made with a Flower Soft stamp, The Lampost. It reminds me of the street lamps in the French Quarter of New Orleans, so I paired it with the Tessatina border that also brings to mind the look of delicate wrought iron.

The Lampost, a "naked rubber" stamp, is on sale now at a huge markdown!  Get it for only $1, this week only! 

I stamped the image with Memento ink, and colored it with Copic markers, stamping another to fussy cut and pop up with dimensional adhesive dots.  I used a scrap of acetate from some packaging to stamp the "glass" with Stazon, and added a Stickles flame.  It is embellished with a dusting of ultrafine Flower Soft, a few sprigs of greenery punched with Martha Stewart's fern punch, and red rhinestone "holly berries."
