On the Top of the World

Today, I spent a few hours stamping, and what a few hours they were! I made so many that made me happy. Whew.

Here's what happened. I vaguely decided to redo my challenge to use all my image stamps again. Some of you might remember the last time I did this challenge it took several years. (I doubt it will take that long this time because I've purged so many stamps.) Anyway, the first box of stamps I tackled was extremely inspiring...some of the stamps are really old (PSX!), and boy, howdy, it was fun to ink them up.


Anyway, here is a card I made before the Bad Times. I'll have a few more older cards to share in the next few days, and then I'll share the new ones.

Happy Friday!

stamps: Gina K Hello Sunshine, Papertrey Signature Greetings
ink: Memento
paper: Papertrey
accessories: dimensionals, rhinestones


  1. I got my Bloglovin' summary with a tiny picture of the card and immediately stuck it in my mental filing cabinet of I-LOVE-IT-AND-HOPE-TO-CASE-IT ideas, even though it is purple. ;-) That's how much impact the design had on me. Don't ask me why because I'm not good at dissecting like you are. I like that the design is simple but the sentiment is front and center, just as it should be for a "grateful for you" card. I am now going to go PIN it since my mental filing cabinet isn't always the most reliable....

  2. This is definitely a "pinner" - as Lucy said I LOVE IT! So much white space, so little ink but BIG impact. I can't quite pick the inks you have used, can you share the secret?

  3. Lovely card, Susan. I also need to do a challenge to use all my stamps. I don't know that I will be able to do an "all" but I'd like to do a "good majority" - how's that? If I am going to do such a challenge, I guess I need to quit buying stamps or I'll never get ahead. :)

  4. Lovely card. Saving to CASE. Going to look at a PTI medallion set I have and see if I can make that work.

  5. Cassandra, they are grape jelly and lulu lavender.

  6. That's nice. I love your shades of purple.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
