Women Of Life

I just love this Women of Live set from Papertrey ink, and it doesn't see near enough action in my stamp room. Recently, one of my stamping buddies, Marissa*, helped me to see the error of my ways. Up until yesterday, I was keeping all my clear stamps in their original plastic bags. I had plenty of room to store them, but I didn't use them enough because they were such a pain to work with. She convinced me to put my clear sets into empty cd cases(got them at Kmart-10 for 2.99) and they are now all proudly hanging in my cd racks(Kmart again-9.99 hold 45, they connect together and can be hung on the wall). While I was getting them organized, I ran across this set and thought to myself, I need to use this soon. While trolling around SCS, I happened upon the limited supplies challenge for today, and since I was still up, I decided to do a little stamping. The challenge was to use brads as your only embellishment, but not just sticking them on the card, they had to be part of your main image. Bells went off and the angels were singing, it was fate I tell you!!LOL!! I stamped the stems in Always Artichoke, the flowers in Rose Red, and the centers in So Saffron. I then put white American Crafts brads through the centers and it was done. I really should be in bed, I have a ton to do tomorrow, and it won't get done if I don't get some sleep!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
