Congratulations Julie


I created this for todays FS113, Julie, I chose her card here. I kept the theme of birds, the two main layers, the single line sentiment, and the ribbon tabs. I wanted to use my new Close To My Heart stamp set called Who Loves You. Thiss is is my first purchase from CTMH. I ordered several stamp sets, they are really, really nice. If I had to pick wood over clear, I would pick clear. I have lots of wood stamps, but I like the clear better. I would like to know what you like best. It is going to be beautiful day here in VA, dh and I are hoping to get on the motorcycle and take a ride....I hope you enjoy your day!

  2. I like the clear too! It is nice to see exactly where the image is going to go. And storage is much nicer too.
    I love your color combo, and this is an adorable image!!!
    Have fun on the motorcyle!

  4. Really sweet card, love the colors. I like clear as you can see what and where you are stamping, sometimes I think the red rubber stamps better though.

  6. So cute! Your owl has such a surprised look on his face!
    I bought my first clear stamps about a year ago, mainly from Sweet'n Sassy so they all have nice containers to keep them in, very easy to store. The others I have are kept in a storage box in the same big storage box as the SNS. All the rest of my stamps are wood and do take up a lot of space, but I do like them. I'd have to say a big advantage of the clear is that you can see exactly where you are placing your stamp before you commit. I really like that, less mistakes especially with words.

  8. CTMH is the reason I became a stamper!! Isn't that funny. Surrounded by SU stampers, but CTMH is what did it for me. I have now gotten my first *real* set of SU stamps, but CTMH and other clear stamps will always be what I invest in! Love the card!

  9. I am in two minds over clear stamps. I do not feel they give AS clear an image as rubber. I have tonnes (a few thousand stamps...mostly mounted and UM's.) I have a decent array of clear, but am wondering about their lifespan and also the clarity issue. Maybe I should have just forked out the money and gotten rubber.
