Okay, I admit it.I am addicted to new stamps. I love to use new stuff! Lately, however, I have not had the 'funds' I need(want) to buy new stamps! It is a sad, sad thing. I know. So, in order to appease myself, and to keep me on budget, I borrow stamps! They are almost as good as buying new stamps. I borrowed these stamps from my friend Shari. I have the punch, she has the stamps...we needed to get them together! I started with a card base in certainly celery and layered a piece of striped paper from the Summer Picnic collection and added a strip of summer sun designer paper. The little stamped border is a stamp from the One of a Kind set, as are the flowers. The small flowers are punched out and the large one...yes, I cut it out. Don't you wish you had a punch for every stamp? sigh... I stamped the flowers with Groovy Guava and Apricot appeal ink. I added a fire rhinestone to the center of the big one and crystal effects and dazzling diamonds glitter to the others. I also added a bit of faux stitching along the edges of the Summer sun paper.
