There's a Show for That

Happy Valentine's Day! Although I have to say I am Valentined out at least as a cardmaking category. I started making them in December for an early January deadline for donation so I am more than ready to move on to some other event. Which is why you are not seeing one from me today.

I've had these petite stamps from Taylored Expressions for a while now and thought it was time to get them inked up. Now when I say petite, I mean really really little. As in the button jar alone is only 1 1/2 inches tall. It makes for some detail coloring. I combined two of the images within this set - my favorite hoarding type crafty products, buttons and ribbon. After stamping, I cut with a Spellbinders Nestie with a bit of out of the box action with the ribbon. I colored with Copic markers and then placed the circle back into the die and sponged around the top portion with ink. I followed February's Sketch for You to Try for the basic design of the card. And of course I had just had to use the accompanying sentiment "There is a show for hoarders!". Speaking of hoarders, do you ever watch that show? It totally grosses me out but at least after watching it, I usually get in the mood to clean and declutter.
