Sometimes I feel that I’ve just got waaaay too many hobbies. And then sometimes not enough.
I’ve really gotten into card making lately – I’ll share a few of my cards in a later post. First I *HAVE* to share my latest stamping haul! The reason why it’s so awesome? It’s cause it’s stamps by Paper Smooches. I’ve been marathon’ing through a crap load of card tutorials and mixed medium tutorials and stamping in all its shapes and forms tutorials; so a few trade names have stuck in my noggin. Then I got a newsletter from Scrap-a-Doodles that they have Paper Smooches cling stamps in stock. I squeeed like a fangirl!
Some of the stamps look a bit bold; blame my ink. Silly Tracy tested the stamps with Archival ink instead of pigment or dye or whatever – anything else except archival! Point is now some of my stamps look bolder even though they are thoroughly babywiped/clean.
I’m stoked for the alphadot set. My handwriting is atrocious. Also finding Afrikaans sentiments in a font I like is a herculean task. Of course I had to get the coffee themes stamp. There’s even a mini macaroon (bonus!!) and a plate to stack them on. Can you see the pastel shaded cookies already. And of course there’s a coffee stain. The sentiments stamp set was practically a no-brainer. I needed some sentiments, and this set just about covers everything.
Can’t wait to start making some cards with these!
