I have recently become infatuated with the Stampin' Up company. I really feel they are a good mesh with my Tangled Moons business on etsy. I've had an increase in requests for additional embellishments, such as inside boxes, waterfall slides, tags or other personalizations. Stampin' Up has such unique stamps that are perfect for this. I still use the Cricut for tags, but the write setting always gives me hollow letters which I need to fill in myself. Sometimes this is good if I want a little glitz, but sometimes, I just want a solid word. Stamps are better for this.
In the meantime, I had fun trying out Pam's stamps and her tag punch today to make tags to go with some of my explosion boxes. I used the chocolate stamp pad and the Vintage Leaves and the Paisleys & Posies stamp sets. I colored one tag so far with Prismacolor Pencils and inked the edges to give it a more aged look. I will finish more of these this weekend during the ball games. What a fun weekend so far! My alma mater, ECU, even won today. Go Pirates!
