It's nice to be reminded

When the kids were little, we'd make stamps from found objects, potatoes etc.  Then we stepped up to cutting shapes with sponges.  So why didn't I remember that I could still play and make my own stamps as an adult lol?

I have dies... lots of dies.  Some have cool shapes like the new Stampin' Up Butterfly thinlits.  A
fellow Stampin' Up Demo shared her make so I just had to make one of my own.  Tried it and it worked great (I'm going to share with my girls in a class).  So you know I had to make a few more lol.  Fun foam can be your friend ;-).  Mounted with repositionable glue on an acrylic block, inked up and stamped... beautiful!


All Aboard ;-)

Too cute linking train (you can get all kinds of adorable "add-on" cars and objects like cupcakes for your train and personalize it) from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

the "Cake train car" was just a quick "colour throwdown" lol with whatever was on my table.  Thought I could use this image inside a card.  The icing was E33-37-57
