Anyway, this talented gal, Marjie, has gotten hooked on other kinds of paper crafting, including stamping. I love the look of all the distressed vintage craftiness from artists like Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi, though my style tends to be rather different. However, the spark keeps striking, so after quite some time of enjoying her amazing talents, I've felt inspired to give stamping a "go." Here are a couple of my first baby attempts:
|New Home Card|
This is my VERY first try, once I received my very first set of Wendy Vecchi stamps in the mail. 'Homemade Art' provided the house stamp and the included Wendy idea sheet gave me the idea for the layered papers and textures. Other stamps are from Autumn Leaves and Close to My Heart. Other embellishments from Prima and Amuse. The photo shows front & back of the postcard sized "congrats on your new home" card, happily mailed off to the intended recipient!
Sure had a lot of fun diving into this! This process is a little more on the self-indulgent than my usual scrapping efforts, but I think it's a fun way to let a little more "me" out to play. Now, off to sign up for some of the challenges...
