Do you have a stamp set that you just never think you’ll use. Maybe it was a gift, or part of a workshop that you thought you’d use it for a particular project. I am talking about those stamp sets you just wonder how you are ever going to use it. Well, I have a bird stamp set that I got with a bundle of products that I just hated. I thought it was the ugliest stamp set ever. I never imagined I would ever, ever use this stamp set.
I decided that I was going to sit down and stretch my imagination to use this stamp set! I issued myself a personal challenge! Like Throw Down with Miss Scrappy Britches. HA! Anyway, I created two beautiful cards using this ugly stamp set. The first I used one of my Favorite Close To My Heart paper packs, Veranda. The second uses paper from my personal stash that I NEVER let anyone see. In fact, I think this is the first time I have posted products not made with Close To My Heart goodies!
Yes, I LOVE Close To My Heart, but I AM a scrapbooker through and through. If you only knew what I have hidden up in my scrapbook room, you would be amazed just how many product lines I go ga-ga over. So I am challenging you to take out that ugly stamp set and make something fabulous like some sentimental cards to give your closest friend and family!
WOW Amy!!! This is just extraordinary sweetpea. I've fallen and I can't get up. 😉
YaHoo!!! YOU have created a FABULOUS card with this stamp!!!! I love it, love it!!! I am saving this to my special must copy Amy folder! Thanks for the great idea – I could only see this bird in red (how boring). Hugs!
