Its good to stamp!

I loved Melissa Bickford's series of little flower stamp sets when they were introduced by Papertrey Ink a few years ago and collected the whole set of 12.  I remembered them when I wanted to make a stack of cards for my sister's tea party fund raiser next month.  I decided to just go with each little set, simply stamped directly onto small plain 3 inch square card bases and using the sentiments that came with each flower image.  Quick and simple - just the way I like it! 

Of course I'll need to have more than 12 cards to offer the tea party goers so I carried on stamping.  I quite liked the idea of using every stamp set in my collection and here are some more cards for the pile - the same size as before and again just one layer of ink and cardstock.


And yet more..... these use 4 inch card bases.  I've not far to go before I reach my aim of using every stamp set - but I think I'll have to draw the line at Christmas cards.  No one wants to think of Christmas in July!


  1. These are wonderful! I love tiny cards and notelets. Where do you get your card bases and what inks do you use Ann? I hope you don't mind me asking. :)

  2. What a lot of lovely stamps you have Ann, i can believe that you want to play with them...

  3. What a lovely stack of beautiful cards, Ann! I bet these will sell like hotcakes!

  4. Wow - you do mass producing so well Ann and I bet it was really satisfying to see the pile grow. You've brought to mind all the stamps in my stash that rarely see ink and encouraged me to pull them out again. Like you I love those Melissa Bickford flower stamps, and I have the Fresh Cut Florals stamps you used in your last post that I haven't inked up yet. I loved your Mum's 90th birthday card and I hope she had a wonderful birthday.
