Fun with Clear Stamps
I really love working with clear stamps. I know I say it over and over, but I really have no crafting space at home. Clear stamps can really be a life saver because they take up little or no room. I store mine in a photo box. The box works well because it keeps my stamps out of the light (which will yellow them) , I can use the divider sheets for organization, and I can store my stamps on a bookcase for easy access.
Today's card is from my class on Wednesday and uses some of the new Hero Arts clear stamps. I love using clear stamps on patterned paper because you can place the stamp so that it doesn't obscure any interesting elements on the paper. For this card, I stamped the bunch of flowers three times with brown ink onto some of my new Crate paper. I loved using the clear stamps because I could stamp them over and over with easy placement on the paper. Any time I don't have to break out a stamp positioner makes me happy! I stamped the saying onto the reverse side of the paper, cut it out, and attached it to the front of the card. I added a few dots of a Stardust pen to the center of each flower for a little pizazz (although, it is hard to see from my scan).
