I bought a few Thomas Kinkade stamps mainly because my parents are into him and thought I’d make them a gift set for Christmas.  Here’s my first card I made with it.  I wasn’t completely happy with the shade of blue but it was a fun first try!  I used Brilliance ink and I have to say the ink itself is shimmery and pretty.  I also had a bit of a “learning curve” with these stamps.  I found my first image never really stamped that great but the second image was crisp and clear. 

I sewed the edges of the main image and distressed the cardstock.  I was inspired to distress the sewn edge by a card I saw on SCS.  I also used dazzling diamonds, but the picture doesn’t show how sparkly it is.
