Play Time ...

I received numerous gift certificates for my b-day a few weeks ago and I have spent them all! My husband got me a GC from http://www.papertreyink.com/. I have had items in my shopping cart for months, just waiting for me to buy them and this is what I bought:

Beautiful Blooms http://www.papertreyink.com/stamps_beautifulblooms.html,

Borders and Corners Monogram Edition http://www.papertreyink.com/stamps_bcmonogram.html, &

Trajan Monogram http://www.papertreyink.com/stamps_trajan.html

I have not used the monogram sets yet, but the Beautiful Blooms set is awesome. The main reason I wanted this set is b/c some of the stamps were made for the Cuttle bug scalloped flowers die set. The stamps are clear, so placement is almost perfect. For, example, on the card below, the flower and the leaf are made up of two stamps each. It almost looks TOO perfect, but I like it.
And here is another card using different flowers from the same set. The ribbon slide is also a cuttle bug die and placing the "birthday" sentiment on it was effortless b/c the stamp was clear and I could see exactly where I was placing it.

These are my first attempts with clear stamps, so hopefully my future attempts will be much better. Thanks for looking!

P.S. I altered the way I type my posts (proper capitalization now) b/c my DH said the post were too difficult to read the other way. I think he was right :).
