I am so blessed to be able to design stamps that I want to use for my cards. I love coming up with ideas and making them into drawings. I love the satisfaction of finishing artwork that I can send off to the manufacturer. I love touching and seeing the stamps in my hand weeks or even many months later.
I also love card making, but sadly it's the last step in the process, so it doesn't get as much attention. After all the work of designing and waiting for the stamps, I don't always have the time to use them, at least lately. Thankfully, I have DT duties that make me sit down, turn off my computer and just create with my hands using stamps, dies, papers, etc. Don't you just love getting inky with your paper crafting supplies?
That's exactly what I did last night and made several cards for the upcoming The Craft's Meow Little Frieda release. And it was so satisfying :-). I also made this simple note card set using Simply Delightful and Happiness Is sets. I stamped the flowers in various inks and created a background. The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee's Soiree collection.
