love plane and simple

Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Mini Catalogue has this wonderful stamp set called, Plane And Simple.
It's not often that I find a "guys" stamp that I love, but this one I do!
The "vintage look" of this set appeals to me and the fact that it comes with comes with so many
great pieces, even a compass which can be used in so many card themes and scrapbook pages.
I decided to add a bit more texture by using the Woodgrain background stamp inked in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock - these names make me crave a latte and a goodie - then I layered a piece of Newsprint designer series paper behind the main image.
The plane is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink twice. Once on the Naturals cardstock piece and again on a scrap. With my Paper Snips  -  love them for trimming detailed images - I cut out the stamped image, added some Dimensionals on the back to pop up the plane on top of the first stamped image.
The "banner" on the tail of the plane I made from a scrap piece of the same cardstock, the happy birthday greeting is from Plane And Simple as well.
The No.20 (cause he is ) is from a vintage retired Stampin' Up! set in my stash. The Antique Brad adds the final touch.
Thanks for stopping by today!
