Letterpress Card

I completed this card using the letterpress technique using impressabilities and the Cuttlebug. I used Stampin Up perfect plum cards stock and ink. Also ivory card stock. The fancy tags by Spellbinders was used for the tag. Hope you like it.

I have added the video from Stamp TV (Gina K). This was so easy and it really looks much better in person.

Closing thoughts for today

Well I was going to add a few more pictures of cards but for some reason the cards won't upload. I will try again later or tomorrow. The blog is nothing fancy at this point but I will keep trying to make it look better.

Here are few of some recent cards. These stamps are by CC Designs. They are so cute. Got to work on the photography of the cards.

Clear Mount Storage

This is how I store my clear mounted sets that I purchase. The one binder has the larger sets in it. They are attached to cardstock that is inside clear protector sheets that are made to hold bulker items. The other binder has the small sets mostly the $1.00 ones from Michaels, AC Moore and Joann's. They are inside baseball card holder sheets. This works out great.

Unmounted Revamp

Around the first of the year I changed the way I store my unmounted stamps thanks to a friend that gave me a little push with some supplies for Christmas to get me started. I had all my unmounted stamps in yellow envelopes much like how some of the vendors at stamp convention display their unmounted stamps for sale. I had stamped the images on the outside of the envelope and kept them by groups.

Well I changed all that. I have now went to CD Case storage. I have the standard size CD cases as well as the DVD size cases. This was big under taking because I have A LOT of unmounted stamps.

I cut cardstock out for indexes and stamps each image on there that would fit in the case. I backed them with laminate so the stamps could stick on there because I used both back and fronts of the insides of the cases. I don't use any foam on my stamps. I used Tombow mono adhesive. Once you apply this to the back of the stamps you let it dry and it become removable. Works great.

Here are some pictures of my unmounted stamp area and the CD cases with the stamps in them.

Stamping Area

OK. Let's see if I can do this. Nothing fancy at this point. I have been rubber stamping for 16 years. Here are some quick pictures of my stamp area. I have lots of room for my stamping. As you can see I have lots of stuff opps I mean lots of great stamping supplies. I keep adding more. Humm is there a support group for this habit? Yea right like that is going to help.
