In The City is a Hostess Set in the Annual Catalog. Actually, I should say it is an amazing Hostess Set in the Annual Catalog. There are 60 stamps in this set! That is a lot of stamps! It is also a two step stamp set where you use two or more stamps to make an image. For example the outline of a building is one stamp, the inside color is another and the roof is a third. You put them all together to make one building. I love it!
To make this card, I stamped all the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then stamped the inside colors using the various other stamps. I used a ton of different ink colors which would be hard to list every single one. I wanted it to be a colorful little town. I stamped the sentiment (which is also a two step stamp) and then cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The oval around the sentiment is from Layering Ovals Framelits and the ribbon is 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon in Bermuda Bay.
Here are some more cards I made earlier using this stamp set. Remember, it goes away May 31st because none of the Hostess Stamps ever carry over into the next catalog. You can only buy this set with a qualifying order.
