I haven't stamped a card in awhile but I am making a wonderful birthday present



for someone who turns the big 4-0 in September. Now I wonder who it is!! It could be Debbie my sister or my best friend Amy. I am not telling what i am making or who its for. (especially since they BOTH read my blog) So ... I haven't stamped any cards in a few days but I did get a few new stamps today so I had to play with them. I have been wanting to learn how to sew on cards but the thought of dragging my sewing machine out of the closet just doesn't thrill me so when I saw these faux stitching stamps by Lizzie Anne Designs, I had to try them out. It has taken me a little bit of practice to get it just right but I think it looks like real stitching, do you? (be honest!) So these are the 2 cards I made today. The cupcake tier is by Stampendous and I used glitter on the cherries and Paper Glaze on the plates (does it show up shiny?). The dog stamp is by Penny Black. Circle stamp is by Hero Arts.

I'm not turning 40 either. I'm staying at 25. Is that going back too far?

Fun cards and the stitching is great. Don't tell and they won't know it's faux stitching! hehe
