Fabulous Friend, 1 Stamp=3 Cards. Day 1

One Stamp - 3 Cards
By: Michael A. Trent, Artistic Guide

I have a new motto when deciding if I want to buy a certain stamp - if I can't think of at least 3 cards or projects to use the stamp with, I don't buy it.  When I saw this image at my LSS I immediately thought of more than 3 cards to make with it - each card with a different look.  Today I bring you my first card.  Stop back on Wednesday and Friday for my other two ideas.

  1. An excellent idea to remind us that isolating an image on a stamp can be a good focal point

  2. Great idea for buying stamps. I have a tendency to buy because they are cute. Very nice card.
