Life is good again, my computer is finally up and running again and on top of it I now have DSL and I no longer have to use dial up. It's so nice to be able to actually watch a video or tutorial and have no problems. My computer is just running so much better now. I think I still need to update my security system but that's it I think.
This stamped piece I made is 12 inches by 5.5 inches. I used all of the incredibly beautiful CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS stamps. The main image with the poppy field is a new stamp of theirs (CI-276) in case you want to run over and buy it. I wouldn't blame you if you did , it's really beautiful. If you go over to Jo Capper Sandon's site, http://jocappersandon.blogspot.com, she made a really beautiful card using that same image. Of course all of her cards are stunning. At any rate, I wanted to make more of a scenic looking piece so I added some of their tree stamps to this along with the butterflies. The sentiment in the bottom right corner is theirs as well. CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS has some really great tree stamps that give the best impressions. If anyone is curious the other CRAFTY INDIVIDUAL stamps I used on this piece are : CI-231, CI-256 and CI-209. They also recently came out with some small house stamps and small trees. It seems like everyone is going through a phase right now where we all love things really small. You can create little villages and towns with them. Also, just in time for summer they have a great new seaside inspired stamp. I just love their stamps so much, you can't go wrong with them. Also if you visit their site, I happen to think they have one of the best Galleries there is.
