My Shopping Your Stash Confession ... when I was packing my studio to move, it was amazing how many things I *discovered* in packing the process ... like these unmounted Christmas Card Stamps I purchased from Purple Birdie on Etsy in February 2011. Not only had these stamps never seen ink ... they had never even been mounted and cut apart.
Another confession ... I HATE mounting stamps ... so much so, that when I first discovered stamping, I chose my Stampin' Up demonstrator because she would mount my stamps for me (thanks Michelle).
So I cut-out and mounted the stamps (okay, so maybe I only cut out the one stamp I was going to use) and stamped it on a white cardstock scrap with Memento Northern Pine ink.
I remember thinking when I bought these stamps what quick cards they would make ... and I was right. A green scrap of cardstock frame, a kraft cardstock base, and some red holly berry gems, and a very mailable card is done.
