But wait, that's not what's on this card. "What happened, Kim?" you ask curiously. Well shucks, I have been stamping for about 10 years...5 rather seriously. I NEVER got rid of stamps. But 2 years ago, we re-did my craft room for Stamp Club, and I decided to purge. I purged a bit more this summer too, making room for new stuff.
So now my Happy Happy Happy stamp is long gone. Sad Sad Sad. Funny thing is, nowadays, I'd keep the stamp and get rid of the rest of the set, which I didn't use that much. I hated the idea of dividing sets...now I don't care! LOL!! The moral of my story is this...NEVER get rid of anything! EVER! Keep your stash! Clear out your husband's closet to make room...rent a space at the neighbor's...just keep it ALL!
I'm only half-joking. ;-)
So what did I use? This is a simple card...a night of navy card base which I ran through the Big Shot using my argyle texture plate from Backgrounds 1. I used my Sizzix "alphabet smple numbers" dies and glimmer paper for the 2012, and added white organza ribbon with a bit of retired silver cord. The sentiment is also retired, having survived my purging attempts. It is from "So Very" and I stamped it in craft cherry cobbler ink, coated it with clear embossing powder and dazzling diamonds, then heat set. The decorative label punch and rhinestones add the final details. Since I just made this card, I have to mail it right away...hmmm...where should it go??
