Sense of Time TSSC66

I had a good time using my new Sense of Time set from the Occasions Mini Catalog last night! I am usually drawn to vintage style stamps and this one did quickly catch my eye. It also has two very nice sayings in the set... and can we ever have too many sayings? Noooooooo! : )

I made my card for Technostamper's Monday Sketch Challenge and you see the sketch for the week on the right. It is a good yet simple sketch which will be useful again and again!

The card base is my much neglected More Mustard card stock; then I added the Artichoke striped DSP on which I softly stamped the gears stamp in Close to Cocoa (I wanted it to be subtle). Ruby Red and More Mustard layers next then a layer of Chocolate Chip which has been run through the Big Shot with the Distressed Texturz Plate to give it wonderful visual and tactile interest. They are great!

I stamped the large clock face and gears on Sahara Sand cardstock in Chocolate Chip Craft ink then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then lightly sponged the various inks onto them and cut them out. The sentiment was stamped and cut out; the ends of the cardstock were each placed into the Rounded Tab Punch to give them that little rounded look, then it was sponged with inks also and Vintage Brads added. All the pieces were layered onto the chocolate piece with Dimensionals and Snail Adhesive. For the three "dots" design element, I used Ruby Red brads from the Earth Elements Brads assortment.

You know, we are always needing cards for the men and I think this one would fit the bill just great!
