Mounted my Bellas {& other random thoughts}

ha you ever have an UGLY card day? that turns it self around and you end up with some really cool cards you LOVE but, you cant share them yet because they are for an assignment, so you keep going and end up the day with MORE Ugly cards?!?! lol so, how was your day dear?
This was done with some scraps of things i do love that you'll just have to check in next week if you want to see them... this is the one that made me decide it was time to call it a day.
Now this i just a little something from yesterday. the image and sentiment are stamped on cream hammermil cardstock from staples. ( before i stamped on it) i patted and rubbed some Vatican Wine Chalk finish ink from Fresco on it... so the image is from Inkadinkado, and the sentiments from SU. they are stamped in Versafine Onyx black. the edges have gold paint pen on them then the whole thing is A-2 in size in real life. as simple as this is i really like this one, the color's yummy to me and its ah maybe even will work for a guy card, or a grown up card anyways... seems to me the people i give cards to are not quite as impressed with the cards i make with 50 layers and the latest embellishments on them. so simple is good.
this is something fun i found last Saturday at linen's & Things, its a drawer organizer bin thing... but the cards inside it the largest one is 3X3 in real life. so, as i cut up these odd strips of cardstock i have started scoring them and trimming them up to be Square little gift tag size things... left them on the table so i wouldn't forget about them either.
Yep, its true all my Bella's and fellas have become wood mounted stamps.
this is like such a "thing of beauty" for me. I have also mounted all the rubber i own that was unmounted, the TAC sets, the POD flowers, the MaVincis's Alphabets and number sets, all of them, every last rubber has a block and an index sticker now...
so today i ordered a whole pile more of these iris project cases from staples and they are supposed to arrive tomorrow.
Life is good :)

Love all you have been working on.
The bella tray is a wonderful.
Love all the Halloween cards. It is one of my favorite holidays.

LOL This makes me laugh Stacy! Why? While everyone else is UM their stamps, you are doing the very opposite. I love it - I think the Bellas look great mounted on to their new homes. I store my wood mounted stamps the same way - in those plastic filers. They are great!

Most of my stamps are unmounted and chucked in a drawer and there you are super-organising them all!!

I had to laugh about the 50 layers ....that's me too! LOL!

Anyway, I love the wine one, as you say, simple is good sometimes.

Your Bella's are a thing of beauty (but I think that you are a bit "cracked" to mount them Haha!)

I love the bellas! I thank you for the rak of them you sent me before! I was wondering if you would be willing to do an image swap. Did you say you had fella's too? Maybe we could swap some since I have a new bella order coming!
