A quick post today with a couple of things to share. I found this bird stamp in the dollar fifty bin at Michael's. There's another one that faces the other way with a different pattern on it and I picked that one up too so I'm working on a layout with the two birds. For now, here's something I whipped up. I'm just LOVING white card bases right now. I am in LOVE with PTI's white cardstock since its so heavy. I wish I could find some locally as the shipping is insane!
The sentiment is from a CTMH set and the ribbon is from the dollar store. I recently have discovered CTMH after years of being curious about it. Now, I am still a rubber lover. My first preference I think will always be a wood mounted red rubber stamp. I was going to give up on clear stamps until I discovered that not all clear poly is alike! CTMH stamps are very pliable and they come off the backing without a fight. Unlike the cheapie dollar fifty bin stamps that come from Michael's, the cheapie Imaginesce and not so cheap Inkadinkadoo stamps that I have that I feel I have to fight with to get off the backing. There are a few other clear stamp companies that have this same particular texture & I'm starting to wonder if the material is different altogether?! Now if only I could find the "perfect" storage solution......lol
Onto the next....!
Some time ago, I made a couple of quick kid's frames and gave them to bf's cousin for her kids. They were in place of a birthday card to accompany birthday presents. They loved them! She sent a message not long after asking if I would please also make a frame for her step-daughter and so I was quite happy to oblige. I picked up the frame at Michael's and a little tube of paint and anything I could find in my stash that was purple. I didn't want the frame to be too busy so i did up some flowers, used my new-to-me Sizzix lollipop dies for the letters and voila! I hope she likes it! (thought it will be some time before we see them next).
Well, that's me for today! Thanks for stopping by!
