Dust It Off Sunday - 6 - Alota Rubber Stamps Get Well Bug!

Hello! Sunday - Holidays really mess me up for what day of the week it is... All day Friday, it was Saturday to me, then Saturday wasn't right either... was sitting there with Hubby last night watching a movie, and realized... oops I never scheduled my post for today!! So this morning I popped up early to get it on before we meet the locals for breakfast at the country cafe we go to every Sunday.

Lots of people are starting to get Winter Colds and Flu right now - and I decided a Get Well Card would be good to have. This is one of my all time favorite Get Well Images. It was actually in my very first order to Alota Rubber Stamps. This one is actually called "Bug with Bug" - I love coloring this image.
Seriously - I adore Alota Images... especially the bugs - This image is so fun for a get well card, I colored with my Copics, then high lighted with white gel pen ( love the white polka dots on the chair.. LOL ) and then cut it out. 

For the Card I went with a country blue card stock, layered with white then blue again. I sewed a piece of I believe K&Company Pattern paper - (scraps... love using them with my Dust it off cards! ) Some of these Alota images come in two sizes, so if you use the larger size they are so wonderful at filling a card you really don't need to many patterns - the image is just enough on its own. I then punches a piece of white card stock with the Martha Stewart Jumbo lattice punch, and wrapped a small satin blue ribbon around the end and tied a bow.

The sentiment is from Stampabilites - cut out and matted with scrap blue card stock.
I attached the image and the sentiment with Pop Dots - great depth and I love the shadows it creates!

If you have some time and want to see a HUGE amount of wonderful stamps... seriously HUGE amount of stamps - pop over to Alota Rubber Stamps and see what Helene offers... you won't be sorry, she has some fabulous images and her customer service is the best!

So that was my stamp I dusted off this week... what have you pulled out that you haven't inked up in a long time and it needs some ink and attention? I want to see you Dust off one of your first stamps and then share the link with me here so I can come visit you!

Ooopss... just saw the time, better run and get dressed for breakfast, Hubby might leave me behind!! HUGS and have a wonderful Sunday!
