"Old School" Stamping

Most of my card making these days is using digi images. So it was kind of fun to pull out some of my rubber mounted and clear stamps to create the cards in this posting.

I had a great time making a bunch of coffee themed cards during my three-day weekend. Here is another one that I'm entering into the 2018 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. The sentiment on the front is made with stencil stickers. (They looked a little blah so I prettied them up a bit with my always-trusty white gel pen and fine-line black Marvy Marker.  You can see this in the close up.) This sweet little coffee cup image is from is a wood-mounted SU stamp from 2003. And the sentiment on the inside slider is a freebie from TLC Creations (createwithtlc.blogspot.com) Instructions for the interactive card upon which I based my creation are here-

For my final entry into the current Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "More than one stamp" I pulled out an old rubber-mount SU set named "Baby Firsts." I was getting low on baby cards so this will help a bit.  Making this card also reminded why seldom use this set. It is hard to stamp a clean image (no matter how hard I tried I kept getting messy smooshed little fingers!)  Accessorized the card with some items left from my scrapbooking days.

Wanted to make a special card for the 4-year old daughter of a dear friend and I know that she loves fairies. So… made this sweet card!  I used a Penny Black Clear Stamp set named "Fairy Sweet" plus freebie sentiment from www.winkwinkink.com to make her this card. I think she will feel very special… especially since I'm sending it my snail mail! I'm entering this card into a few challenges including Di's Digi "Load on   the Embellies" ( 7 layers including lace, ribbon, vellum and mini-butterflies that I stamped then fussy-cut!)
