A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

I {Heart} Stamping and New Digs

Greetings!

I have a quirky and quicky post for you today to share a coupla cards. I think you'll be able to relate to this first one!
My cards today combine very old stamps with NBUS. I have had that wee little rubber stamp stamp for 15 years. It is an unmarked stamp, but the shape of the wood makes me think it might be from Close To My Heart. The embossed stitched rectangle is a NBUS Die-Namics "LJD Peek-a-Boo Window" die. The paper, alphabet sticker, and heart stamp are all from my stash. The "ing" is from a vo Hero Arts alphabet stamp set.

My twofer is an OLC which was made for one of my sisters who recently moved into new digs of her own. I liked it so much that I made two more to send to friends who have also moved recently.
The NBUS stamps from this "Vogue Abode" stamp set by Paper Smooches date back to 2012. The "congratulations" is from "Whatnot Sentiments Four" by Your Next Stamp. I used a simple pop of coral color befitting the mid-century style (and to match a chair my sister has) and added lots and lots of score lines for interest. And just because they are fun and easy to do with my Scor-Buddy. I am linking this to the CASology challenge, "Score."

Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*
