Sometimes Brands Don't Count

Yes, sometimes the brand of stamps that you stamp with don't matter as long as the image is pretty, why not?

The floral image is a stamp by StampCraft and the sentiment "cherish" was an unmounted stamp that I mounted on a block myself. I don't even know who makes it.

Short Instructions

I stamped the floral image on glossy cardstock then colored in with pastels by rubbing it using a q-tip. I colored the little flowers with markers. I matted the image then mounted it on to the background using foam tape.

The tab to the left was created with Stampin' Up "Word Window Punch" and I added a brad to embellish it.

The background is scrapbook paper by DCWV. I buy the stack value packs that are usually on sale at Joann. It's more cost effective to buy them in bulk.

I stamped the "cherish" with Stampin' Up' s Eggplant envy, punched it with an oval punch, mat it on an eggplant colored cardstock, then cut it out with scallop scissors.

I punched two holes to the sides of the sentiment and looped a ribbon through.
Here is another card using the same floral stamp.
