OHC 54- Secret

Today's card features the newest stamp from The Greeting Farm's Super Secret Stamp Club - Ezra. The second I saw this stamp, I knew I had to pair it up with OHC theme 54 - secret. The first thing that pops into my mind when I think of "secret" is a journalist uncovering the secret of the century! I guess all those mystery books, shows and movies have got me thinking about that. And how perfect is Ezra with his camera?!

I stamped him out in brown ink and colored him in with Copics. I carefully cut him out with scissors, leaving a small white border.

For the card background, I picked two fun papers from my paper stash - a cute speech bubble paper and a camera sketchy paper. I layered them together, then added a strip of black cardstock to create some contrast.

I used  the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Here's the Scoop stamp set, added to a thin strip of cardstock. I angle-cut the sentiment strip and adhered it to the card.

As a last touch, I added a few black enamel dots, and the card was done!

Thanks so very much for reading!


  1. Hi! OH, what a fun card! Ezra is super cute! You colored him beautifully! You really know how to pair papers together! I don't have that great selection of papers. I seriously need to go shopping for patterned papers. How do you choose your papers when out shopping?

    1. Thank you, Ka!
      I started replying here about patterned paper, but it got so long that I just made it into a proper blog post. Hopefully it helps! :D

  2. Ah Ezra looks amazing. The patterned paper looks so fun too! A great design, my friend!

    1. I'm really enjoying the whole secret stamp thing. It's so much fun to get an unexpected stamp and it's thrilling to open the package to see what it looks like.

      I think I'll sign up again in September!
