I like how these turned out. I did these for another theme for TexasTam's swap on my favorite MB. I love these girl stamps without the heads! They always have the best sentiments come with them! The sentiment I reserved for inside and it says "A hug to ease your Cough and sneeze" and since they are clear stamps I was also able to line up ""feel Better Soon" directly under that so it looks as though it was one stamp! LOVE IT! (said in a Wheezie-from Dragon Tails-voice.) The background I did with Stampin' Up's Texture plates, then I sanded them down a bit. A little note about the texture plates. If you want a more defined image, spritz the cardstock with rubbing alcohol before embossing it! I then used my handy piercing tool that slides into my new scoring tool. The images was stamped on watercolor paper, and I used my watercolor crayons from Stampin' Up to color it along with my blending pens.
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
