Hampton Art/Authentique Blog Feature Day 5 - Final Day

What a week! Have you been enjoying all the great projects shared by both Authentique and the team here at Hampton Art? I love how all the different designers used the Authentique/Hampton Art stamps!

Today is my turn. I have a card for you that I created using the Authentique Keep Me Posted stamp set. 

Keep Me Posted card by Kimber McGray

For this card, I kept it fairly simple. I started by stamping by background paper with different colors of Brown and Yellow inks. This gave it an ombre feel. To bring out the yellow in the stamping, I added a thin piece of yellow cardstock to the right edge. 


I love the ticket stub stamps that came with this set. I cut out a few to use a background strip and then layered two of the other images for a collage feel.


Finally, I added a bit of twine and two more stamped ticket stubs with an added stamped sentiment to the top of the card to finish it off. 

Supplies: 

Hampton Art/Authentique stamps: IC231 Keep Me Posted
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Twine: Lawn Fawn
Punch: Fiskars

You have until Sunday night to leave a comment on any of this week's posts for a chance to win one of each of the Authentique/Hampton Art co-branded stamp sets!

Have a great weekend!
