I miscalculated this summer when making birthday cards, I had one more that I needed. This is my last made card from California - tomorrow I hop on the plane to return to Maryland.
The roses are from Altenew, the greeting from Simon Says Stamp and the background script is from Hero arts. I used altenew inks in the yellow tones and PPP sequins in the fall mix.
As far as crafting goes I learned something about my tools on this trip.
I brought along a stamp platform from WRM. That platform is going to be downgraded to envelope stamping use - for my return address and any decorations I might add. The lid is thicker and doesn't give in to finger tip pressure on photo-polymer stamps.
I have found for me the tonic platform is best for rubber; because, not all photo-polymer stamps are the same thickness and with a sturdier lid there sometimes is a pressing issue for me.
I also own the mini misti and the original size. I have been using my mini for envelopes, but after these two months...that mini is going in my travel bin.
Because I use mostly the clear photo-polymer stamps I so missed my misti's. Their lids are the perfect thickness to add a little extra pressure and that foam insert makes for a clean stamping. When I need to replace a stamping platform -- its going to be another misti...I am just not in love with the other options mostly because I prefer clear stamps. For rubber stamps any of them works well for me.
Thanks for stopping by!
