Today, I am showcasing this cute little gumball machine stamp from My Cute Stamps called Gumballs!  It comes w/ a gumball machine, a little flower and the word Sweetie.  I wanted to leave it blank so that when I'm ready to use these cards, I can just affix whatever sentiment is needed!  The "glass" for the gumball machine is actually individual bubbles from bubble wrap!  See, you just have to keep EVERYTHING, because you never know when you might need something!  This is a perfect example!  LOL!

I used Brocade Blue c/s and Whisper White.  Real Red ribbon.  Silver gel pen for the gumball machine, as well as Copic Red R27 ~ Cadmium Red.  I used different colored Copics for the gumballs inside the machine.  For the inside of the card, I used the flower and stamped in Rocket Red, Paris Dusk and Dandelion, all Memento inks.

Have a STAMPTASTIC day!!!!
