As the summer winds down I thought I'd share a few travel-themed cards. In a few days, I'm off for a quick little trip to my parents, where I will DIVE into my mom's new CTMH goodies from the latest catalog.  I hope to have lots of new cards made, to share in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, here are some cards featuring one of my favorite stamp sets, Sightseer!   

I have two cards to share today, both in one of my favorite color combos - aqua, black, and white!  I used CTMH washi tape on this, and made a fun border with the arrow stamp.

 On this second card, I embossed the camera.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way crisp bold images look, when they are embossed.  I also used an embossing folder to create this dotted background. (And I'm sad to say I have no idea where the embossing folder is from - I borrowed it from a friend, at a crop! And I think I NEED it!!!!) A VERY helpful tip - when stamping on an embossed surface, stamp FIRST, then emboss the dots.  (Something I didn't do this time, but I was able to fix my inconsistently stamped sentiment with a Sharpie!)

I'm looking forward to sharing some NEW NEW NEW goodies with you in the next few weeks.  I promise I'll get busy as soon as I get into my mom's stampy stash!! (After all, her craft room is in MY old bedroom, so that gives me clout. Right?)  ;)

This is a great set of cards! I keep forgetting to use my cuddlebug tool thingy and add texture to my card stock like you do!
