I've been busy soaking up the last bits of my summer and have been stamping too. Over my vacation a few weeks ago, I stamped and colored tons of images so I'm madly trying to pair them up with the perfect card layouts. I don't usually work that way. It seems a little backward in my mind, so it's been a bit difficult. I prefer to pick papers then pull colors for my images from the paper.
I'd like to share one card I finished today. I recently purchased a few stamps from a former OBP team member who recently started selling her own adorable stamps (Sparklecreationsrubberstamps.com) and with her new August release just the other week, I thought I had better get this stamp inked before the new stamps arrive in my mailbox. This is Swimming Lucy...Isn't she cute? I also used WoodwareUSA's sentiment set: Mixed GreetingsI totally used scraps for this creation!!!
PS...I've got some great news to share too... I received an email today stating that I am one of the semifinalists in the Design Team search for Heartfelt Creations! I'm so excited! I will be receiving some stamps that aren't released yet and I am to create two items with them, then email them the pictures...and we'll see if I make it to the finals! Wish me luck!
