One of my New Year's crafting resolutions was to use every image stamp I own on a project. (Note I specified image, not sentiment, stamps, seeing as a lot of the sentiment stamps that come with otherwise great sets are pretty useless.) I don't have to finish this resolution in 2009; it's going to take a while to get through my many, many stamps. But I'm working steadily at using them all.
Here's my procedure, if you're interested. I pull out a set, use all the images on cards, and then mark it on a list as "keeper," "okay until something better comes along," and "get rid of it." It's interesting what sets are really easy to work with, which ones take more effort, and which ones simply aren't worth the effort for me. Very often, the results surprise me.
PTI's Friends 'til the End is a keeper for sure. Here are two cards I made with it. The leaves are not as nice as the flowers to me, and are a bit harder to work with, but I was proud I used that big one on a decently CAS card.
If you're interested, hop on over to Questioning my Intelligence for my Memorial Day tribute. It's got pictures and everything! (*wink)
