blog me (maybe).

like a week before blogger blitz chicago on july 15, i suddenly realized i didn't have a blog calling card to pass out, so i made quick work of making some up.

{i started with ordering a couple of personalized stamps from rubberstamps.net.  it was quick and relatively cheap - and you just upload the images you create.  i downloaded the respective font for free for the script and used alexandria for the blog contact details.}

{the stamps came out beautifully, far better than i was expecting even!}

{i ordered this awesome white chalk ink pad from amazon; it ended up covering so well}

{my supplies: stamps, ink, twine + black cardstock}

{cutting 3.5" x 2.5" tags}

{cut the corners off .5" down}

{hole punch each}

{and start the stamping!  when you stamp, make sure you try several on scrap paper until
you get the hang of your stamp; each has its own quirks}

{waited until the front side dried, then stamped the other}

 {added a little sparkle with olive manna twine}

 {finished product}

very happy with how they turned out!  next time, i'll try not to wait until the very last minute to throw these together ;)

  1. They don't look last minute at all! Love the finished product. xo

  2. these are so pretty and whimsical (perfect for your blog i would have to say!). i can't wait to order my own stamp, thanks for the idea!

  3. you need to work for martha stewart. now. Hold on.. you need to be the next martha stewart. now.

  4. Wow! When I saw them on twitter, I thought they were ordered that way! Good job!

  5. love these!! is that a martha stewart crafting board i see??

  6. I loved those! Thanks for sharing the link to the ink and stamp! Hopefully blog meetup again soon??

  7. Those are very nice. I love the white ink...on color, black especially is very striking.

  8. omg these are amazing. i love them! x

  9. I absolutely love this idea! That is a calling card I would like to get at a cocktail party! :)

  10. These do not look last-minute or homemade at all. I love rubber stamps and embossing and all things related. I did all my wedding programs by hand this way and got so many compliments!

    I am a little perplexed why I didn't get one of your cards at the Blogger Blitz! Perhaps we'll need to plan another meetup soon with everyone.

  11. These turned out amazing!! I have been wanting to get new business cards, so I may just have to do something similar! Thank you for the great idea!


thanks so much for the note! i love reading your comments. xo. di.
