Get Sketchy 72

Happy Friday friends!!! Finally, the weekend. It seemed like such a long week and all this snow wasn't helping. My Waltzing Mouse Stamps and PTI orders came in today! Yay!!! I was so giddy with happiness when I arrived from work to see all the boxes stacked. I just love getting craft goodies! Of course, I had to try it out on something! And Get Sketchy's sketch was perfect for it.
Here's their Get Sketchy 72.



I have had my eye on Waltzing Mouse's Seasons of Love stamp set for such a long time now. There's just so many good stamp sets there that I didn't know which one to get first!!! Well, I finally have my hands on it! Yay! The heart and sentiment both came from the set. I'm not too happy with my SU ink though. The red wasn't vibrant enough for what I had in mind. I'm thinking I should get a red pigment ink just for this stamp! I didn't want to use chalk ink and stain the set. My other favorite stamp set Victorian Frippery is so stained from using chalk inks that I'm tempted to buy a new set! The strip of flourish along side the patterned paper is also from Waltzing Mouse Stamps, it's their Very Vintage Christmas set. 


Lately, I've been thinking of setting up an Etsy shop. I have a lot of cards that are just sitting around here and not being put to good use. I would love to see them go to people who would enjoy a good handmade card. I'm not fully convinced yet, but I wanted to know your thoughts. If you have an Etsy store I would love to hear about it. 


I am going to have so much fun tomorrow playing with my new "toys"!!! :) So I'll see you all again tomorrow! Thank you so much for stopping by!

  4. How beautiful! The bow and big jewel draw your eye to the sentiment, and I love the contrast of the green strip down the middle. You always do an amazing job of combining patterned papers and stamping without making it look like too much.
