True confessions of a snob
I was in Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago and they had stamps on sale. Now, honestly, who among us can resist stamps? Especially when they are on sale? I know I can’t.
I found this set of American Craft medallion type acrylic stamps called Majestic for $9.99 on sale for 50% off! SCORE!
Now, I have to admit I use to be a wood mounted only kind of girl. No acrylic or polymer or bare rubber stamps for me. No way! I was a true snob. And, honestly, preferred SU to any other stamps. Ok, I admit I might have sipped some of that Kool-Aid. Then one day I saw an adorable stamp from Rubbernecker. You know they kind, those unmounted rubber ones. *gasp *! But the stamp was so cute so I just had to buy it, and a couple of others. Loved them!
Then I found some acrylic stamps at Pat Catan’s - you know how that goes. One of those just HAD to HAVE stamps. Well, after that I was pretty much hooked. I love acrylics and am thinking of unmounting my SU stamps and other wood mounted ones.
Anyway, this card was a simple one. My base is 4 x 5 ¼ to use up some more of those odd sized envelopes. I used Color Box ink in Bisque for my background and creamy brown for sentiment and edging. Rounded my corners and ta-da!
I think this will make a great sympathy type card or pretty much any other occasion. I will probably recreate this card so I have a few on hand. Like I don’t have enough cards on hand * eye roll *
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!
