Stamping! It's the fun thing to do!!!


I have wanted to stamp for days now and finally spent some time doing it yesterday. Wasn't sure what I was going to do at first. I have several ideas that have been swirling around in my head but just wasn't sure I wanted to tackle them.


So, when I sat down at my table I saw a piece of background paper sitting there and decided to use that up. (It is the same piece I used on my big clip that I posted previously.) I can't remeber who the paper is by for sure, but I know I picked it because I really like the colors in it.


I stamped a few cards and then decided to work on this little clip board stand. It is the cutest little stand thing and it has a clip on it just like a clip board. It is about 5 x 7. I found it at A.C. Moore for $1.00.


I used sticky tape to adhere the paper to the unfinished wood and let it overlap the edges slightly. Then I took ribbon and went around the whole outside edge (you can't see this in the photo!) to cover up where the paper went around the edges. I needed a little something to cover up the little 'not so perfect spots' at the top around the clip so I decided to use some primas on either side in the back of the clip. Then that great big shiny silver clip was bugging me so I added the large prima to it, like I have seen others do.


Stamped the saying and mounted it in the middle of the board and viola, it was finished!
