Monday's Stamp Talk

Happy Monday! I am sharing a card that I made last Saturday. It was for Barb's Scramble challenge over Hero Arts Flickr Group. The theme is "Tic Tac Toe" (details here)"God be with you"
I chose heat embossing, Pattern paper and Stickles. It is a bit hard to see the Stickles that I add on the Easter lilies. When the Stickles dries, the flowers actually look quite lovely!
 Supplies: Sentiment is from SRM Stickers, Basic Grey Paper (Serenade), G5749 Etched Flower with Stems

Today is also the 4th week of Monday's Stamp Talk over Hero Arts Flickr. (details here). Since it's my last time to host, I am doing a more in-depth discussion.

Here is my little example to show how we can be more creative in using our stash of stamps. This stamp set So Kind and Children At Table are totally different. But if you choose the right elements from the stamps, they will work together! See what I mean now?
thanks you for everything
Anyways, I hope this stamp talk inspires you to look at your stamp collection a bit more creatively! Thanks for stopping by!

I love your first card. It is a stunner. I've pinned it onto my Craft board so I can look at again and again. Your second card is beautifully done.

Virginia, I love the card you made for Barb's Scramble. It's so rich in detail and the images go so well together. The second card is fun and I love your creative use of the diamond stamps to ground your sweet image.

Thanks for another GREAT topic this week!
