My sweet friend Andrea introduced me to the world of rubber stamping years ago and I am forever grateful for that! (We met freshman year of high school, so she has been a big part of my life much longer than she hasn't!) She lives about two hours away, so we don't see each other as often as I'd like....but we did get together on Easter and I feel recharged! We hope to meet up at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania later this spring, so I think I can hold on until then. She is a true gem and so precious to me!
Stamps: Papertrey Ink "Floral Foliage" and matching die, Hero Arts "Woodgrain Background"
Inks: Grass chalk ink, chocolate brown die ink
Other: various patterned paper, Nestabilities Labels 8 dies, Martha Stewart grass punch, black fine Sharpie pen, pink gems, pop dots (tree is popped up)
I'm so relieved that I finally made a card using this new stamp set. For some reason, when I order a bunch of new stamps at once I almost panic and can't do anything with any of them! I still have stamps I received for Christmas that I have never inked...I look at them, then I totally blank and put them back for later. (Does that ever happen to anyone else out there? Please say it does!) Instead of stamping, I go searching on Pinterest (a new addiction...eek!) for ideas, then I run out of time. As a result, I have a bunch of news stamps that have never seen ink. I do hope I can get them inky soon...I'm very frustrated with myself about this!
I hope your week is going well. We are on Spring Break, and we just returned from a 2-day stay in New York City. What a blast that was! I'm hoping to post some fun pics from our big city adventure soon.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
Have a great day!
