Well I did it. I made my first card using my own digi stamp and I cannot believe it! Like I said, it's been a grueling process -- much harder than I thought. But the good news is once the stamp is done, it's done. I created this stamp based on a house I had stayed at in Vermont a few years ago on vacation. I loved the house and especially remember the cranberry door. I wanted to start making cards with fall colors as my favorite season is quickly approaching so I chose chocolate brown, olive green, goldenrod and cranberry rhubarb DP to complement the colors in the stamp. I added a darker olive green ribbon just to add a little more color and made the embellishments by punching two different sized circles in the green and gold, and adhering a brown pearl to the center of each. The image is of course popped up with foam squares because I'm addicted to those darn things.
