I am so excited to have received my set of "Those Girls in their Hats" by Buzz n Bloom (for folks who don't rubber stamp, the "set" I'm referring to is a sheet or plate of unmounted rubber stamps). My friend, Phillipa (who owns a stamp store in Australia) had ordered them for me, and then sent them up. Don't they look so "ooh-la-lah?" I love my Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder; and thought it would be useful for creating an elegant background for the ladies. When I get images like these, I tend to go with "less is more." So, after stamping the ladies on white cardstock, I didn't feel I needed to add any more embellishing (bows, bling, brads...you get the picture). They're elegant, just the way they are.
AND.....on another note........Today, my friends Cathy and Tina received the altered matchboxes that I made for them. These are made out of large matchboxes (like the ones that have something like 1,000 matches inside). I made them to be ATC (Artist Trading Card) holders.
