Today's card I created for my hubby. I will be leaving on vacation without him so I wanted to leave a little card behind for him to find on the bed that will let him know that I am thinking of him and that he will be missed while I'm away. I know the pink background cardstock isn't your typical "manly" color to use but I grunged it up a bit with a splatter mark stamp. That made it dirty and more masculine right??? -LOL

Today I tried stepping out of my comfort zone by using more than 1 or 2 stamp images on one card. I like the look when I see others doing stamped layered images on card fronts but I would usually stick to the basics when creating my own. Anyway, in this particular card I used 4 different stamp images and I was quite pleased with the way it came out.

Ok...I have a secret confession to make....shhhh! Don't tell anyone! Here goes....
I have over 100+ Stampin' Up! stamp sets and probably 75% of those are in pristine condition that have NEVER been inked on....NOT even used once! I am a definite collector! I have envisioned what glorious creations I would make if I had this or that stamp set. Once I receive the stamp set, I gawk over the images for a while and then it gets filed away with the rest of my lonely stamp sets ....never living up to it's full potential of what she was put here on earth to do...to be stamped with and used as a tool to create a true work of Art!
So...I've decided to get out those stamp sets and put them to good use! I will create works of Art and allow my stamp sets to live up to their true full potential.

Ok...I am NOT particularly a fan of Wine but the stamp set, "Mixed Drinks" has some cute sayings and various beverage glasses that I had to add to my stamp collection! This is a super cute stamp set that I can see making many fun cards with....it's very versatile!
