Stamp sets that have never been used. Why do we buy them and never take them out of their packaging let alone ink them up and stamp with them.
Well, I purchased the Life Shared stamp last Fall and it has never has been close to an ink pad, so I decided that it was time to take it out of the container and show it the light of day.
The Life Shared stamp set is really cute and can be used for a “thinking of you” card, or a “birthday card” or maybe a “just because” card. This stamp is also an a-la-carte stamp (only one in the set) and would be great for someone who is just starting to make cards or doing scrapbook pages.
I wanted to make this card bright and cheery so I chose the Temping Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry colour pallets and what better to go along with this than the Summer Smooches DSP.
I did eliminate the sentiment from the stamp and then coloured it with a marker and stamped it in the inside of the card and then added another sentiment from the My Friend stamp set.
