Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

I love making cards!

It’s Virtual Stamp Night this weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, so I thought that I would indulge myself in some stamping just for the fun of it.

So, VSN has various challenges under this month’s theme of You Make My Heart Sing. The hostesses are extremely creative with their challenges all relating back to the main theme. Great job ladies!

Here is another card with many more to come. This technique is called “soot stamping”, so look it up at SCS to see

I’ve been at it again, finding cool recipes to capture and save. When can I try them all???? 🙂

I’m doing some cleaning by using up paper I’ve had for close to a year at least as the base for this 6×6 recipe page. I did NEED to couple it with something new – the stamps from Stamps of Life! Too cute for words, this month’s Love2Hug set fits this recipe card perfectly! Thanks Steph!
