Love an Unloved Stamp Day

Good Morning! I'm sure you're surprised, but it's cold here again today. Our temp right now is -10 degrees and our high is going to be 3. No snow in the forecast until Monday though - woo hoo!!

It's love an unloved stamp day today and I used 2 unloved stamps on this one. Have you ever purchased a stamp thinking it would be an easy stamp to use and one you would pick up often. Well, this flower stamp was that to me and it turns out I never pick it up to use it. I love it, I just don't ever come up with any good ideas to use with it. Both of these stamps are Inkadinkado. I scalloped the bottom of the front of my card with my corner rounder and then used one side of the reminisce paper for the top and the other darker side for the bottom to represent the grass. The flower gems are these cute and fun little flowers by Dress It Up. They add lots of bling :) I stamped the sentiment with Tsukineko Brilliance ink - peacock color which is a green, teal, and blue all on one pad and then matted that onto Bazzill Bling. Tied a little bow around the top and it was finished. Made me feel good to use these stamps. Give it a try. Love an Unloved Stamp and then leave a comment with a link so we can see what you do with your unloved stamps.

Stay warm and love a stamp today :) Thanks for stopping by!

This is wonderful. It's so springy and pretty. Love the little flowers. I too have stamps that get unused - for months.

Beautiful Card I hope to play today as well. I have some stamps that I had to have and yet I have not played with them ever! I have an autism awareness card in my mind for a few days now thanks for the inspiration!
