Best Wishes....with BLING!!

When I was at The Paper Pickle awhile ago, I noticed this pretty stamp set that was included with note cards and some bling, all put together by Hero Arts! I'm telling you - this is a big stamp - sentiment included!!

So this is the stamp and the note card, which is a kraft colour (it always photographs a lot more yellow than it really is-drat!!) and I have added some bling-not the bling that was included-but bling nevertheless!

I was kind of disappointed in the stamp, because the image it stamps was very fuzzy. No matter what I did, or what ink I used, it was fuzzy!

So I got examining the rubber, and it was intentionally fuzzy! DUH! I supposed it is a distressed look but I didn't care for it, because you can see that it does not stamp a crisp image.

I felt that I had to colour over the birds with black pen and the sentiment also.

I traced the flowers and background leaves with my Sakura glitter pen and then added the green "Verve Visual" bling to the middle of the flowers and the three "blings" at the top of the card.

The patterned paper is from Basic Grey and I have done some faux stitching around that paper.

It is kind of pretty, but like I say I was so disappointed because I had such high hopes for this stamp!! *stamping foot poutingly*!!


  1. This is very pretty - I know you were frustrated with the stamp, but you did a wonderful job with this card! I love all the sparkliness, and the DP you used is perfect! Great stitching, too!

  2. Stunning, but what a bummer about the fuzzy stamp. I'd pout and stamp AND throw a major hissy fit. You handled it well by fixing it so brilliantly: it looks so gorgeous. :0) Mel
