Stamped Designs will be holding a Spring Yard Sale on Saturday and Sunday - June 1st and 2nd. We will only have items out on those 2 days and will be picking up the items after June 2nd. This is where you can sell your items for Stamped Designs store credit. We charge a $5 flat fee to get into the sale - you can bring in as many items as you wish. When you register, you will get stickers with a unique code for your items. Price your items and bring them to the store. You can drop off items between May 18th and May 30th. All left-over merchandise must be picked up by June 16th - any items remaining after June 16th become the property of Stamped Designs. Stickers will be available for purchase starting on Thursday April 18th.
So, start cleaning out your stamping/scrapbooking area and look for items that you are interested in selling. Please ensure that all items are in working order - paints and inks should not be dried out.

Wow! It has been almost a month since I posted to the blog! Yikes! I swear days are going by at warp speed these days. I will try to be better about posting.
This card is a wonderful dogwood image from Impression Obsession. Flowers always seem to be "go to" images - you can always use them. For this card, I started with a kraft-like cardstock - it is called Fossil from The Paper Cut and in many ways, I like it better than a standard kraft stock. First, I took the honeycomb background stamp (also from IO) and stamped it with VersaMark ink on the fossil cardstock. Then I stamped the dogwood image in black VersaFine ink and colored it with Prosmacolor pencils - starting with white and then adding the pink accents for the flowers. Add some ribbon and layers, and you have a wonderful card.
