I went to a stamp garage sale yesterday here in town, and I did get a few stamps. There were so many I was just overwhelmed lookin at them all! I did buy quite a few card bases to use also, oh and some envies!! Never can have too many card bases or envies! NOPE NOPE NOPE
I did manage to get a few cards made with the Stampin Up "Going Out In Style" stamp set. I thought this one was just too cute and could be used for a variety of occasions! Okay if I could remember I would tell you what size this is.....but I am tired right now...I think it is an A2 card though. I also tried watercolor pencils for the first time. I like the results but it seems I am faster with my trusty colored pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits method. The bottom one is the one I did with the watercolors. I got a set of 12 Kimberly watercolor pencils yesterday at the sale for $1.00, so figured for that price I could give it a try! Not sure if you can see in the pictures but I did use Stickles on the jewelry she has on *okay raise your hand if you are surprised I used Stickles HA HA HA* The inside of the cards say "Well behaved women rarely make history". I JUST LOVE THAT QUOTE!! *wonders why okie hasn't made history yet since she is rarely well behaved*
I also got a pumpkin stamp. I just saw this little stamp and thought I had to have it!! I know it is out of season right now but at least I will have a nice fall thank you card when the time comes! The "thanks so much" is a Studio G stamp. Oh the pumpkin stamp is Hero Art I do believe *NO I am NOT going to walk over there and see!* I used the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder on the card base and also on the brown oval. No Stickles on this one but I did use some Chestnut Cat Eye Ink for the distressing.
