Here is the inside of that card--insides usually are just a stamped saying, but I hand drew with markers in this one. It was for a bridal shower.

Cards

Gee whiz,
64 squares,
They are really pretty. Don'tcha just playing around with all these cards. It sure keeps me busy while my hubby is hard at work.
We are what you might call 6 & 6'ers. He works 6 months and we travel 6 months. Right now, we're in RI and he's working so I have plenty fo time to play around with my cards.
I have a few on consignment.
Let's keep up the good work

I don't stamp as much as I would like being a stay at home mom to my 3 children 4 yrs. and under! It is fun when I do it though, and now I have also started the One Stroke method of decorative painting recently, if you have ever heard of it. That is a lot of fun, too!

Sounds like you have an interesting schedule--you must travel all over then. A little bit different life than I lead!

64squares I really like your cards. I have though stamping would be fun but so expensive because you have to buy so many different stamps and you might only use them 1 or 2 times. How do you do it so it doesn't break your bank?

Val every card you share is lovely. I might give your method a try after I get my boutique stuff finished. They would sell well at the boutique too.;-)

Stitcher 45--The stamps and such do cost a lot. I buy most of mine through a home party/catalog company called Stampin Up. Their stamps come in sets. The sets are still expensive, but the per stamp price is a lot less than you would pay in a stamp store or craft store. You mount the stamps yourself following easy instructions. I have just taken several years to gradually build a stamp collection. Every once in a while I can get an OK deal on something on Ebay also. You do have to shop around though to know what is a good deal on Ebay. You can also use Ebay to sell the stamps you are not using. I hope that answers your question even if it won't help you out!!

Thanks 64 for the information. While I was cleaning out a box of craft stuff that a friend gave me when she moved and found that there are a few stamps. I will have to get some ink pads and try my hand at stamping.

Is there a paper that is better to use? Do you make your own basic card when you stamp cards?

Sandy--I just buy cardstock through Stampin up or at Craft stores like ACMoore, Michael's, etc. Does not have to be expensive--just any cardstock. I just cut a piece in half for 2 cards' worth, and then fold each for stamping a card. It is easiest to buy variety packs of colors for cheap at AC Moore or somewhere. That way you can layer the colors for neat effects. If you think of any more questions, feel free to ask! --Rebecca
