New Love for Old Friends

My dearest stamps (rubber, cling, unmounted, and clear),

I'm really sorry that you guys have been sitting in the dark dank drawer for such a long time while I have been busy playing with paper, embellishments and other paraphernalia.  I'd forgotten how much I love you guys....

So, I hope you had fun on our recent outing...

...where it was just the two of us (with our favourite embossing powder and ink buddies and just a few stickers for company).....rediscovering each other again....

I love how you blend into my journaling, making my handwriting look better than it actually is...

and how I can stamp you again and again till you run out of ink and you still make things look good...


I love it when you partner up with your good friend embossing powder to create awesome effects...



and how I can use you in an 'any old how' way to make cool backgrounds...


I love how you help me highlight my photos....

And how you make on impression on every surface you meet....

Oh my darling stamps! How I love you so!!!  You make me feel like an artist!

Till our next adventure!!

Now this is the way to start off a crafty new year Sharon! I love this project and it was so much fun to see those stamps put to incredible use.
FYI, Jeri Parks of My Create Classroom is on a quest to use all of her unmounted stamps this year. She created a blog Use Every Stamp 2013 to keep her on track. You might want to join along, everyone is free to set their own goal. Just sayin'!
