I'm back quicker than I thought I would be... but it will have to be a quick post as I need to leave for work soon....
This is not one of the cards I made after work yesterday.... this is truly my first card of 2009.
I got this new stamp in the mail just after Christmas along with a few others from Unity Stamp Company. The image arrived, not as I am used to their images mounted on cling foam. This stamp had foam and this strange wood mount... almost like a piece of plywood. I was actually sure this baby would give me a good image, so right after I got the stamps, I was sitting down at my stamp table doing nothing and thought I would try it. I happened to have a piece of Almost Amethyst cardstock sitting on my table (no idea how or why) so I grabbed my Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender pad and inked up the stamp. Lo and behold, it stamped beautifully.
And I walked away to be with my family.
Then I finally had a day I felt like crafting and had the time to do it.... the test piece was still sitting on my desk so I thought "what the hell" and off I went. I used another Unity stamp from my first time purchasing from them. My colours are one of the SU Greys, Almost Amethyst and Whisper White. The three brads are Filigree Brads from Stampin' Up.
I don't know where I got the idea for this card.... but it worked! I hope it happens again!!
Thanks for coming by!
