Good morning.....

and welcome to day THREE of the Inspirational Crusade over at ISC . Today we are showing you one more way of using some of those stamps you have bought and only used them once or twice.





I am sorry my post is kind short today, but I am still battling those computer issues :C. So, if I don't hurry and get my stuff posted the puter shuts off ;D.





Natures Beauty

Recipe:
Paper: PTI Rustic Cream

Stamps: ISC Odd Findings (script and label),
Flourishing Ivy (flourish), Summer Elements III (Friends), Friends are Special (butterfly)

Inks: Tim Holtz Distressing Inks Tea Dye and Antique Linen, Memento Rich Cocoa

Can you believe I did not use any accessories? WOW, I am surprised at myself,LOL!! As you can see I stamped the butterfly 4 times and cut it out to give it LOTS of dimension. I really wanted this to be a 3 D kind of card. Yes, you might have to make your own envelope for this one.

So, did you get some good inspiration over these three days? I sure hope so.....as you saw in my creations and the other Creative Architects work...the sky is the limit. Sometimes it is GOOD to think outside the box. I sure have learned a lot these past days and will try to use my stamps more often and mix and match to my hearts desire ;D.

Remember, if you leave me some love , two people will be able to win ONE free stamp sheet of their choice, so, all you have to do is leave a comment and we will be choosing 2 people of all of the entries we have received over these past three days to receive one free stamp sheet of their choice. So make sure you head on over to my teammates and check them out and make sure that we have a way of contacting you. Include your e-mail so we have a way of contacting you!!!

Hi Sabrina~

This card is just wonderful. I love the mono-chromatic look...and yet it is overflowing with life! The butterflies, the ivy flourish that just seems not to end... and the communication going on in the letter...from one person to anyother. Beautiful and very different from what Ihave seen you do...or me do! I'm going to give it a try! Thanks for leading me in this!
