No-Sew Spring Card

I love this Stamp Stitching technique. It's so quick and easy and really looks like fabric. You start with stitches from the Running Stitches set and then just rough up the edge of the paper with an edge distresser. (Click on the photo for a larger view.) Of course, every card could use a few Stickles. Sew fun!

Sloppiest Stamp Studio Contest

Well, they do say that a messy workspace is a sign a creative mind, right? So, enclosed is my entry for the Sloppiest Stamp Studio Contest. It's a competition I have going with the oz-some Heather Scott of Oz-some Stamps. (Actually it's one of those mischievous "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" challenges. :) As you can see, when I have run out of workspace in my stamp room, my strategy has been to get out a new folding table and finally just spill over into the adjoining room! I'm just too busy having fun stamping to put my toys away. The only trouble is, I have trouble finding my stamping goodies when it gets this crazy. Now where did I put that Whimsy Blossoms paper? . . . .
