I actually did stamp 101 images during the month of January. I was hoping I could get 100 different stamps inked up. Now I have actually inked more than 100 but some of them were duplicates so they didn’t count. For this milestone I thought it only fitting to use the very first stamp set I ever won. It was the first challenge I entered and I won!! I was so excited. I love this set and it has seen a lot of ink over the years. It is a retired set from Mark’s Finest Papers and it makes me sad they don’t sell it any more. I can now go to my mom’s in Alabama in peace, knowing I have accomplished my goal.
I have also been wanting to use my Frostyville Die that I bought from Simon Says. It’s a Memory Box die and it’s exquisite in design, isn’t it? The vintage sheet music is stamped in versamark just to add a touch of interest to that all red paper. I stamped the French Horn over it in black versafine and clear embossed it so it really shines and stands out. I had that little star lying on my desk from holiday time so time to use it up. (I told you I can’t throw anything away)! I am entering this into the ABC Christmas Challenge to use B the bare essentials embellishments.
