Skip A Beat

Itty-bitty cards are so awesome! 
Itty-bitty cards inspire me to stay true to my style, sweet & simple.


My dear hubby, Scott, bought me this "Skip A Beat" stamp set for Christmas,
along with several other stamps from Unity Stamp Co.
I stamped the record image on kraft cardstock in black Archival Ink.
The sentiment and the heart are stamped on washi tape.
When stamping on washing tape you need a very steady hand,as not to smear your image.
 I highly recommend using Fiskar's Stamp Press to help you do this!


A single Helmar Zapdot  was used to give my heart a bit of dimension. 

This itty-bitty card is for Moxie Fab World's "Make An Itty Bitty Card Challenge"
and for The Paper Players Challenge #129: Clean & Simple Sketch. 

I think some more ittty-bitty cards are in my near future!

Katie, those of us of a certain age will certainly remember the "skipping" on a record! I love the vintage feel of the image mixed with the modern lines of the composition. Fabulous! So glad you joined the Paper Players this week
