New Stamp

Yesterday at lunch I went to one of our small little stamp stores in the area. It's a great little store that's been around for a long time. They carry many cool and different stamps as well as the famous names. After getting an email from Hero Arts yesterday about their new spring catalog. I saw this awesome woodgrain background stamp. When I got to the store and looked at the Hero Arts section, I could see that they had not received the new stamp yet. When I told the saleslady what I was looking for, she told me a box of Hero had just been delivered. She pulled out the invoice and sure enough, the stamp was in the box. I guess it was meant to be. Needless to say, I had to try it out when I got home last night.

Here is the card I made. I used the stamp to create a piece of patterned paper then cut it out with my Nestabilites Label 1 die. The tree is cut from a Quickutz die. The cardstock and ink is from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is from Basic Grey, Granola collection. Buttons from my stash and twine was also used.

The wood grain pattern came out great. I can see using this stamp over and over again. I'm sure you'll all be seeing it soon. Plus it is great for those tough to make masculine cards.


About tomorrow, if any of you are going to be in the area. Mega Meet is going on and I'm taking the day off of work and attending. It's fun scrapbooking show and sale. They also hold classes so I'm taking the Glimmer Mist/Tattered Angels class. Looking forward to learning how to use their products. If you plan on attending and want to meet up, that would be great.


Hope everyone has a fabulous day!
