A BIG You're Welcome

#stampinup The Nacho Average Challenge this week is a sketch challenge. At first I thought I couldn't play along because I don't have any oversized stamps...but then I remembered what I said when I opened the "Balloon Bash" set--"Wow! These stamps are huge!" And I haven't even inked one of them up yet, so this set was a perfect choice for this challenge!

I started with one of the sheets in the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack. I'm still loving these papers and I can keep using them for a couple more weeks until they retire. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso directly onto the DSP. I love the #yourewelcome. It's so snarky--just like me! Then I mounted this piece onto an Early Espresso mat.

Next, I tried a few colors for my card base and decided that I liked Mossy Meadow the best. But it was a little too bland, so I embossed it with the Arrows Embossing folder before I added the sentiment piece, popping it up with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.

This card came together so quick and easily that I made a few others. It's great to have a masculine birthday card in my stash!!
