SCS Featured Stamper
So, I made a card today...
This is for SCSs's Featured Stamper, which this week was StampingQueenJAR, who has a lovely gallery. We are supposed to choose a card and change at least two things about it. I Changed more, as usual, but kept with the overall western feel of Judy's card.
I used Balanced Rock and Thinking of You from Creative Play Stamps. The paper is from Hot Off The Press. I've decided that one of the reasons I like the more expensive designer papers so much isn't because they are always more beautiful, but because they are so much higher quality. I like this paper. I think it's pretty, or I wouldn't have bought it. But I bought it before I really became very knowledgeable about paper. I think HOTP is a beginner's company. Let's face it, once you've worked with the lush thickness of Crate or My Mind's Eye, and the other big ones to a lesser extent, paper the thickness of printer paper is not that impressive! It's difficult to even sponge the edges, and forget about distressing, it's nearly impossible!!
Well, the wind is blowing about 5000 miles per hour today. You think I'm engaging in a bit of hyperbole, perhaps? Fine, just come on over to the Oklahoma Panhandle. I'll prove you wrong, then we'll go play in my stamp room. No hard feelings, right?
