Shabby Stickers and PTI

My first PTI set, Love Lives Here. Can you believe I've gone without PTI all this time? Anyhow, I love this set, and the exquisite little coordinating dies!
This is a tag card. I used very old HOTP paper and some Crate Paper Crush-also ancient, but still gorgeous as the day I bought it!
This is one of my favorite things to do with scraps. I die cut them, then stamp, sponge and glitterize them. They are especially appealing when they are all matchy-matchy like this set. That gorgeous bird is from Artistic Outpost's Birds of a Feather, you can count on them for such beautiful images. Straight stamping, no coloring. Fast, vintage and shabby/grungy-that's what you'll find at AO.
I have been away from my blog for so long, I hardly know how to act! I have enjoyed visiting other blogs recently. Hopefully, if I can apply some moderation, I won't get so burned out. We'll see. In the mean time, have fun stamping just for stamping's sake! I've been having fun stamping without any special reason to do so except that I really like to stamp!

Enjoy, Carla!!

I love Artistic Outpost, too!! And your ready-made diecuts are wonderful -- they look like they are maybe adhesive-backed and on a waxed sheet?? Curious about that!

Great idea to use up the scraps, as I have a box full to overflowing with them, plus you have some handy topper ready and waiting for you!
