First Post


So I have started my stamping blog! I am hoping that this blog inspires me to stamp more often. I LOVE rubber stamping and card making. I love everything about it and I hope to use this blog to share what I love with the people I love... and maybe some strangers as well! There are a ton of blogs out there and the talent is unbelievable! I've been reading these blogs for the past couple months and gathering inspiration. It seems like stampers are having fun blogging so why not? Plus it is one more thing I can use to procrastinate my school work:)
Here is a card that I made over the weekend. I'm going to have to work on the photos!
Card was made with SU So Saffron base with a layer of SU Certainly Celery which was run through the Thank You Cuttlebug folder. I wanted to Cuttlebug the So Saffron but I couldn't figure out how to only emboss the front of the card and not the back while also making sure the words were going the right way. Spatial relations are not my thing:) but in an AHA moment the solution came to me at work last night! The bottom of the card is Certainly Celery Palette of Prints cut with scalloped scissors (also unintended, I made a mistake with measuring... this is why I am a social worker and not an engineer:). Anyway, I stamped this SU stamp (not sure what set it is from, I got it from my demo) onto confetti paper layered on the CC POP and the ribbon is American Crafts from AC Moore.
Thanks for looking!!!

I love the blog name and the card! Apparently you've picked up a foreign language along the way (you put the who in the what now?). Maybe our explorer friend will teach you some photography tricks to showcase your work. As for me, just tell me how to order!

Wow, I wish I had patience to do stuff like this. Maybe I'll just admire Laura's...
