Favorite Go To Stamps: Linda’s View

Finished Card Size: 4.25″ x 5.5″ Picking a very favorite stamp is very difficult, if not impossible, for an addicted stamper.  We like all kinds of different techniques, and different techniques require different types of stamps.  Having said that, however, I do have a favorite genre in rubber stamping, which I always turn to when […]

Happy Anniversary, Stamper’s Quest

ATC Transformers: Landscapes

 Finished Card size 5.5″ x 8.5″ Fits an A9 Envelope    I have to be totally honest and tell you that when I first saw the theme for this month, “ATC Transformers”, I didn’t even know what it meant.  Being a new designer and all, I didn’t want to expose my ignorance right away, so I did […]

Finished Card Size: 5.5″ x 8.5″ (Fits in A9 envelope; 5.75″ x 8.75″) When I first started thinking about the theme of “Reflections” I immediately came up with the two most common definitions:  (1) the giving back of an image or likeness, as in mirrored; and (2) the fixing of the mind on some subject, […]
