I just can't decide!!!!
So many stamp sets, soooooooo little time!
I'm guessing that I'm not the only one who looks at their shelf-load of stamp sets and feels overwhelmed with the thought of deciding which set I want to use.
I mean why did you buy those sets if you don't use them? Did you buy it because you liked all the images? or maybe it was just one fabulous image or sentiment that caught your eye. I'm not pointing any fingers mine you. I'm not sure if you want to see my 11 yrs. of sets that (I fell in love with ????) But here is the point..... What are you waiting for? So you just use 1 image out of that set, that's o.k. Fall in LOVE again, it wants your attention.
Today's EASTER inspiration does just that. Believe it or not I used 6 different stamp sets to create this card and I used just 1 stamp out of each set. Now that could be a record....lol !
I'm a sucker for a vintage collage feel and the POST CARD stamp is the perfect background to start with. Here is a sampling of what I mean. Feel free to click on any of the samples and it will take you to the original post.
My 2013-15 In-Color Collection was also begging for my attention...USE ME, USE ME! I do love the ice cream like feel of this group that will be bidding a fond farewell come June. Today's combo is whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe. For a deeper contrast to the Cantaloupe , and another In Color,Tangelo Twist made an appearance. It was used for the Sentiment and the inside of the flower. Wild Wasabi seemed the perfect green to compliment my color combo.
So here is a list of the sets I used , current and retired,
one stamp from each set!
- Fern.........Butterfly Basics....... (current)
- Post Card background..............(current)
- Spatter.....Gorgeous Grunge......(current)
- Flower......Postage Card Due.....(current)
- Eggs.........Nature Walk............(retired)
- Sentiment..Easter Blossoms.......(retired)
Challenge yourself in the next couple of weeks to fall in love again with some of your old sets. And maybe just maybe you may find a new set that would be the perfect compliment to what you already have. I did!
