*Updated* ~ What Inspires Me To Stamp ~ Michelle
Oops! My post went on and posted without me!! LOL! Here is the card I made for this week featuring the Large Jar stamped on acetate with black Stazon ink. I also stamped the Love Bugs in the jar image and applied glitter to the back side of the acetate; reminiscent of fireflies in a jar! Setiment is from the Just My Type set. Papers are from Bo Bunny Crush Collection.
The design team has been asked to share what inspires us to stamp this week! I created the collage above to show you what inspires me to stamp!
I have been stamping for 17 years...I started out in a shoebox when we lived in a tiny one-bedroom apartment as newlyweds. Over the years, my showbox has grown into a hobby I never imagined! What inspires me to stamp is all the stamping goodness that occupies my little corner of our basement family room.
I love flowers! I love ribbons! I love copic markers! I love pretty paper! I love stamps! I love color! I love that I can take all of these things and combine them into something unique! I love that the hobby that relaxes me and keeps my mind busy also makes other people happy when they get happy mail in their boxes! I love it when I can show someone that they can stamp too, or teach them a technique they never knew!
