I’m going to start with a little confession….I had a stamp set that I bought in October that I hadn’t used! *gasp!* My problem with it was that I couldn’t gain any inspiration from it and had sat staring at it whenever I took it from my shelf. Anyway on Thursday my lovely upline posted a card that she had made using said stamp set, so I confessed about it’s lack of use in my craft room so she challenged me to use it this week.
When I got into my craft room I sat down with the stamp set and a lot of DSP! When finally I realised that the stamp set works perfectly with the Afternoon Picnic DSP, why had I not noticed this before?! Well then the creative juices were flowing and these are the two projects I came up with.
On my fridge at home we have so many things stuck to it with magnets so I knew that I wanted to use a giant peg as a clip for all these things, and as it’s in the kitchen, and I love tea, what better image to use??!
Actually fell in love with this stamp as I was using it! Can see it having a Valentine’s theme as well….
The notebook I thought would be a nice gift to someone, either for their birthday, or as a thank you.
As it’s quite an antique looking stamp I thought that ageing the lettering and the edges of the oval would work well along with the worded DSP from Afternoon Picnic.
So lesson learned this week, at least try a stamp before dismissing it! I’ve gained so much inspiration from this set now, massive thank you to Sam D!
I hope you like it, will you be trying a rarely used stamp set today?
