Blog Candy - harder than you think!
I think I finally get the hype of stamping.
If you have seen my cards you know I am a fan of digital and vintage. I love to layer papers, stitch my cards, add glitter, paint and ink. I love to stamp to create a distressed, old, worn look.
I do, however, love the look of clean and simple too. And often I will ooh and aahh over a card and tell myself that the card is beautiful but pretty easy to make. HA!! Big mistake! I want right here and right now to APOLOGIZE to all card makers out there that have dedicated their lives to stamping the perfect image. I found out that it is harder than I thought. I am very sorry for thinking that it was easy. It is an Art to do what you ladies do out there!! See end of post for a few of my favorites..
Below the result of my experience:
Supplies: Prima and Technique Tuesday stamps, Tim Holtz distress inks, Staz On ink, satin ribbons.
Now check out these pros:
And to these ladies I would like to say: YOu are simply the Best!!!
And if you, my fellow blog reader, think the above cards are worth anything, then leave me a comment and enter to have a chance on winning the cards above. The lucky winner will be picked on July 27th.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend :)
