This set of stamps is really exciting to me. I have a huge personal belief that kindness needs to be shown more. It doesn’t cost anything and generally makes everyone feel better.
When I went to make this card I wanted to make a Sorry card, but I don’t seem to have a stamp for that. The kind of funny thing was that I was lamenting to my nephew and he kept saying ‘sorry’ then we realized that it was funny. He didn’t know what to say except sorry you don’t have a sorry stamp. I do have a lot of thanks, stamps so that is what I did instead.
I feel like I have to admit that I have this feeling at the end of every major season of disappointment in myself at the seasonal things that I didn’t use on cards. The remaining Halloween items that didn’t quite make it on to cards this time around. I know that they will be used in the future, that it just wasn’t their time quite yet, and it isn’t something that I can ‘push’. I just still feel like I should have made more and tried a bit harder. read more
Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more
As soon as I saw the inspiration board I knew exactly which stamp to use! Again it is one of my favorites! It is one that I have always felt bad that I don’t think that I have used nearly enough, so that is an extra good thing as well. read more
So many times I feel the universe is telling me something if I just choose to listen. This was definitely one of those times. Just this last weekend a friend was over and we were looking at my paper stash and she eeked out at my trick-or-treater paper. Then there is a challenge for trick or treat, well I knew exactly what to use! read more
