More old stamps


Well, I've been at it again - I found another old stamp and made a card with it, the backing paper is brand new though & I was quite extravagant and used nearly a whole 8x8 sheet!

I love the way the embossed background turned out - I inked with bashful blue onto the cuttlebug embossing folder before putting the paper in and embossing, I actually really like the mottled effect where the ink didn't quite cover the whole folder.

I've had the snowman stamp for years (an old Anita's one) and don't use him much because he's not quite as cute as some other images.

Anyway, happy stamping & I'll no doubt be back soon with some more stuff - I've got a week off work at the moment and as the weather isn't playing ball, we are only doing short trips with DD.

Old is gold they say. And it definitely seems that way with the images you are using. Lovely!
