I have too many stamps! Yes, I said it. I really need to do some purging. I think I haven’t yet because I unmount my stamps (completely – down to bare rubber) and I don’t know if that will keep people from wanting them – and I don’t want to deal with something like ebay. Anyway, I’m trying to use some of my older sets to help me decide what should go.
This card is made with two old Stampin Up sets – Simply Sweet (vases) and Alphabet Soup. I think I got Alphabet Soup free (because I can’t believe I spent money on it, it really isn’t my style). I got Simply Sweet when it retired. I really love border-like stamps but always have a hard time using them.
The layout is using the SCS Dirty Dozen July sketch. I thought it would be a perfect way to use the row of vases. Now if I could have colored the water better (i.e., chosen a better color) I would be much happier. Oh well.
