OLW17 Border Stamps

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, two posts in one day. Don't get use to it *wink* I stamp nearly everyday and usually remember to take photographs . . . it's the editing and actual posting that proves to be the challenge.

And speaking of challenges, this week's challenge on Simplicity's blog is to use a border stamp. As I perused my numerous, never-seen-ink border stamps, I came to the realization that as drawn as I am to the idea of using border stamps (and even border punches and what about all those nifty had to have Stampin' UP! wheels, huh?), I rarely use them. And when I do, I tend to reach for the same ones again and again. So thank you, Susan, for another great challenge.

The border stamp I used here is from an old (and never used, I might add) Hero Arts set of 6 sewing related stamps. The sentiment is also from HA - a recent clear set called "Sew Artsy", and the wonderful vintage sewing machine is from River City Rubber Works.

Enjoy! And thanks for stopping by.


  1. This is just darling! Love it! You do good work, gf! And, you beat me to the post AGAIN!

  2. I love this! The sentiment is so perfect with that machine. I really need to think about getting some "stitching" type stamps....cause I really like them!

    Love this card...thanks for sharing!!

  3. This is an awesome card, my mother in law would love it!! Leave it to Susan to get us to pull out our neglected stamps!! :-)


Thank you for taking time to comment . . . it feeds my mojo!
