MCT's January Stamp Release BLOG HOP

Welcome to the My Creative Time's January Stamp Release Blog Hop! If you came from Liz's blog you are in the right place. Its been an awesome week and now we get to show you all of the new stamps Miss Emma has been working on. And boy, did she do a fabulous job! I'm having so much fun playing with these stamps that my family has to pry me out of my scrappy happy place! Hee hee..Today, I will be showing you a card using the new Grand Slam set. I do have to admit that these sports themed projects are a little challenging.. It's only because my kids are not in any sports..I do have a ton of nieces and nephews who do play sports..(about 18 of them, and 5 great nieces and nephews!!!!) I love how this card turned out. I stamped the BB player image on designer paper using embossing ink. I then embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Fussy cutting the image was a challenge but I think it came out pretty cool. I used the  Script Type Backgrounds stamp set for my background. The base of the card is 5 by 4 1/2 inches.
