A few weeks ago, I had a chance to use some of the stamps I haven't purchased when some of our team met up. Since I am mainly a hobby-demonstrator, who runs one or two classes per month, I have to think about the dollars. I'd seen Painted Petals used a lot since the Occasions Catalogue was released, but I hadn't been convinced that I needed another floral stamp - until I played with it! It now sits on my shelf, along with the Happy Heart Textured Embossing Folder that I wasn't going to buy either. I also used, but haven't yet purchased the biggest stamp from Hello Life.
I stamped the Painted Petals over the greeting at the time, but I brought home two card-front sized pieces to think about. For this card I've chosen to cut the sentiment out with the second largest oval Framelit, layered onto the largest Deco Label Framelit in Melon Mambo, which in turn sits on the largest plain oval in Blackberry Bliss. Still have one plain sentiment to use somewhere, before I decide whether Hello Life joins my stash too.
Because my card is 5¼ inches square, the embossed sheet had to be taken through twice. I love how crisp those hearts emboss, just gorgeous! You could do so much with this folder, I now have an idea brewing for my almost-two-year-old grand daughter's birthday card. You have to love it when those ideas start to pop into your head!!!!
Hope you're creativity is alive and well too!
