4th of July Birthday

Another idea from the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Community Website (I have spent a lot of time here lately because my google reader had gotten out of hand and it scares me :D).  It uses a technique that I just love but always forget to use, Rock n' Roll.

To get the dual colors on a stamp is very easy.
1.  Gather your materials :)

2.  Color in the center of the stamp with a marker of the lighter color.

3.  Roll the stamp on the ink pad of the darker color making sure not to touch the middle of the stamp to the pad.

4.  Stamp the image

5.  How Fun!

The top layers of Cardstock are "popped" up from the card with Dimensionals.  I keep looking at this card trying to figure out if it stands alone or if it needs something like a punched design with a saying on in on the middle of the top rectangle.  What do you thing?  Would you add something else?
