Long-time readers know that I resolved, starting in January 2009, to use every image stamp I own. There was no deadline for this resolution, and I've made excellent progress given how many stamps I own (too many to count). In fact, I only have four StampinUp sets that haven't been used since the resolution began, which I consider to be something of a miracle.
Well, now it's just three unused SU sets because I used all the images in Garden Silhouettes last Friday. Each stamp was colored with Watercolor Crayons, spritzed with water, and stamped. Once dry, each image was accented with Stickles (oh how I love that stuff!), matted, and put on whatever card base looked best. The same "thank you" stamp (also SU, not sure what set) worked for all but the flowering branch, which got another, smaller SU "thanks so much" from Trendy Trees (I think), which looked much better.
I'm so glad this resolution didn't include word and sentiment stamps because I would never finish, especially considering that I have Everyday Flexible Phrases, Everyday Expressive Phrases, Amazing to Zany, and Define Your Life.
Don't ask why I bought them. They spoke to me, and the only way I will be parted from them is for them to be pried from my cold, dead hands. Of course, I should probably use them. Occasionally. Once in a while. Every blue moon?
