Cards Starring Stamps
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 05, 2015
Remember the days before die cuts? Seems like ancient history doesn’t it? The new Impression Obsession stamp collection inspired me to make cards where stamps are the star and die cuts play a minor supporting role. Along the way I discovered something … it takes a lot less time to create cards with stamps than it does with die cuts. And it’s more relaxing because you don’t have to glue, glue, glue! Don’t get me wrong, I love die cuts and will continue to give them star status, but it’s nice to pull out the inks and stamps from time to time!
If you want or need a stamping refresher, these cards will be featured in two classes on Saturday, February 7. Check out our class schedule on the Classes page.
