You're Cool Card



I recently bought a set of second hand Papertrey Ink stamps from Caryn in her Glitter Me Silly Sale. There's still some stamps available to buy if you wish to check it out.

One of the sets I bought was the Grunge Me Stamps. And when I saw this card over at Maskerade, I was definitely inspired to use the design as my muse. I loved the idea of using a white die cut circle on top of a square white card as the canvas.

I added a few stamped circles using another set from Inkadinkadoo which is probably no longer available. However they do complement the Grunge Me circles. I often prefer to go to geometric images in my stamps, preferring the graphic nature of them. And they're so versatile. You can use them in any style to suit.

That aside, all I can say is, at last, it's good to be stamping again.

Lovely - like a breath of fresh minty air :). I do love that stitching effect, which appears on quite a lot of your cards. Such a great textural touch.
