Artsy Fartsy

This is one of those stamps that I say is an "artsy fartsy" stamp!

I bought it because I thought it was cool - sad reason, yes...... But everytime I went to use it, I couldn't figure out HOW to use it.

So when this challenge came up on Splitcoast Stampers, and we could only use Staz-On - I brought it back out, dusted it off, and stamped!

I stamped the images in black Staz-On, on acetate and then adhered it to the designer paper with clear glue dots.

Black is the only color or Staz-on I use, so that made the decision on what color to use pretty darn easy!!

I had just planned on using grey paper as the background, but I cut it too small - WHAT??!! - and ended up taking out my DCWV Old World Stack paper and using it. I like it better!! I - Funny how that works.

Main stamp is from Inkadinkado and is called PaperArtsy

Sentiment is A Muse Artstamps

Corner stamp is from Technique Tuesday - Postcards from Paris

My dog has to go and have her SECOND shot for rabies! Okay, tell me, when did they start having 2 shots......whatever happened to just once a year going and having a rabies it is a set of two shots 6 weeks apart. And it cost $45 each time.'s a racket I tell you ---a RACKET..... LOL!!

Gotta go!



  1. I love your artsy-fartsy card! You did a wonderful job with the stamp!

    Wow, 2x a year for rabies shots. That's suspicious. Our dogs have a 3 year shot. . .just one shot good for 3 years. I need to check with my vet and see if the criterias changed. I'd hate to have rabid dogs! LOL!


  2. Artsy Fartsy, thats great!!! A beautiful card.


  3. I like this card! Artsy Fartsy . . . that's funny! I love the stamping on the DCWV Old World Stack paper . . . it looks great!

    I hear you sister! The vet is a racket! I agree! Those HeartGuard pills and the Frontline are pretty $$ ca-chingy too! We still have the rabies shots just once a year . . . I'm wondering if that will change!!

    Happy New Year!

  4. Love your card!! Great idea to stamp with black stazon and then put over DS paper - gotta try that! Happy New Year to you - hope the vet trip wasn't too expensive!

  5. Gorgeous! It's so fresh and original: the perfect way to do artsy fartsy! :0) Mel

  6. I like the way your card turned out too. I'm never sure if I like artsy fartsy stamps...but I find some of them interesting...and you did this one beautifully!
    Happy New Year!!
