I am really, really trying to use what I have. I have hoarded like the best of them. I said to myself "self, you have so many types of ink, so many colors of ink, so much ribbon... you fill in the blanks--we've all said it. At any rate, since I need to continue to feed my habit of buying, I decided stamps were still fair game, but I need to use what I have. On to where I was going. This pad of My Minds Eye DP, which I love. I cut this to cover plain white cardstock, then stamped MFT Bud Basics, I think it's called using colorbox chalk inks. One of the great things is after you stamp, you are done. No coloring needed. I added a little shadow under the flowerpot, but that was it. I've been in love with bling, but decided against anything except the American Crafts ribbon. It was so shimmery and purty, I thought it looked just right. Often times I leave my cards blank on the front too (almost Always blank inside) then the day I need to use the card, I rummage through my messy, unorganized room to find what I want. Then I may stamp it on a new layer, or directly on the DP. Enjoy your day and see you soon.
