Not just a Hobby


I am into scrapbooking to say the least. I used to work at a small scrapbook store and of course was familiar with stamping, but did not get into as deeply as I am until my friend signed up as a demonstrator of Stamping Up. I have not signed as a demonstrator, but you would not know that to look at my scrapbook supplies.You never know maybe someday when I am not as busy with the kids. I have really grown as a stamper and decided to start a business as a handmade card maker, and sell them to friends, family,and at craft shows.
So here is a card I made to sell. I think it is very hard for me to make a masculine card so I am very happy how this turned out.


Always Artichoke card stock for the card, stamped with a retired background stamp from stamping up. Trees from Lovely as a Tree and the bear from Wildlife Preserve stamped in black and colored in with the aqua brush and stamping up inks.Then I matted it with creamy carmel then with chocolate chip stamped with canvas. Also used some chocolate chip corners . Creamy carmel torn piece with three brown brads.
