Will Work for Rubber Stamps

This "Addicted to Rubber Stamps" set is so much fun for us stampers, there are a bunch of other funny (because they are true) sentiments in the set too, can you relate to any of them? ;o)


This was a quick card, I just cut an oval from white card stock and embossed it with a retired SU embossing folder then matted it with foam tape onto another white card.  I stamped my sentiment with Versafine black ink (my favorite ink for sentiments and details) and also the maid image so I could watercolor her.


I used watercolor pencils to color the maid then fussy cut her out without leaving any white border.  I love the perfect white border left when using dies but when I fussy I cut I almost never leave any white around the image.  I find it hides my mistakes better when cutting on the line. 


To complete my card I popped the image up with foam tape and adhered everything to the front of a light gray card base.  

I hope you enjoyed my post today and I hope you enjoy this stamp set designed especially for stampers.  I mean we make and send cards to non-stampers all the time but only another stamper can truly "get it" what we put into them and how much we love our hobby right?!
HAPPY STAMPING!

Bouquet for you

Hi everyone,
I am over the moon ever since I got my Daniel Smith watercolors, I am just enjoying watercoloring and there are so many gorgeous stamps released by Whimsy Stamps which are perfect to colour. Today I used a stamp set by Doveart called the Bouquet. Its a beautiful image to colour with any coloring medium.
I love painting my blooms in pink and violet shades as they always look natural & pretty. I used a die to cut the stitched rectangle and a beautiful sentiment that finishes the card so elegantly. I hope you liked this card for today and do try to recreate it :)
Hugs
