Pick a stamp, Any stamp! - GD post for Craft Hoarders Anonymoys Challenge


Welcome! This is Challenge # 5 for Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog !

You don't have to be a card maker to hoard stamps! With the popularity of pocket-style scrapbooking (Project Life and Photo Freedom) and the explosion of journaling stamps on the market, many scrapbookers have also become stamp hoarders. Digital stamps are more popular than ever. I am sure that most of us have at least one stamp in our stash! You may "collect" wood mounted stamps, clear stamps, cling rubber, or even digital stamps! Get one out, dust it off, and make it the STAR of your project! We want to see a stamp (sentiment, word art, image, etc.) on your project! Feel free to use more than one stamp, but you must have AT LEAST ONE stamped item on your project. 

One talented participant will receive this prize, donated by Hampton Art! The GoGo Crafter Rolling Tote is collapsible, allowing it to be shipped and stored flat. It comes with two wheels and a sturdy retractable handle for transporting. It also has interior dividers that are adjustable and removable, two interior pockets, three exterior side pockets for supplies, and a zippered front area. This tote can hold enough items for an evening crop or be a helpful "companion" at trade shows or expos


Also note that the prizes are shipped internationally so all of you crafters do participate.

Here is my project.


 For this card here I simply stamped the background stamp in black inks and distressed the two panels with black soot (back panel) and shabby shutters distress inks(front panel). The fabric flowers are handmade using velvet fabric scraps.
