Stamp What? A Beautiful Bloom

FYI - Tuesdays are usually reserved for my Travel the World series, but Kelly, Barb, and I decided to move our Stamp What? posting date (each month moving forward) to the 10th of the month (it was previously on the 29th) so today is Stamp What. Be sure to come back to my blog tomorrow for this week's Travel the World card.

Kelly (of the Three Musketeers, Ready Set Go, and Hot Mess Success) came up with a great idea for a series this year and asked Barb (of the same groups) and I to join her. 

You know that stack of stamps you have that you have never used or haven't used in a LONG time and are sitting on a shelf, collecting dust?  It's time for us to take one down off the shelf and use it!  But which one?  The name *Stamp What?* comes from using only STAMPin' Up stamps for this challenge and never knowing WHAT it will be! Even we won't know which one it will be ~ it's chosen at random either by someone for us or by number generator.  (I used a number generator to determine which one to use). Since it's chosen at random, it will be a surprise, even to us!  

Stamp What?!!

I have 24 of the older (wood-mounted) SU sets left after last year's purge. I numbered them and then let a random number generator choose this month's stamp set - Bella Blossoms.

I remember how excited when I first got this set - it's such a bold and beautiful flower. I used it a few times and then it sat... and sat... and sat some more, not seeing any ink. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to pull it off the shelf again. And it did not disappoint. I still love that flower!

Be sure to head over to Kelly's blog and Barb's blog to see what stamp sets they used and to admire their creativity.

As always...

Oh this is a beauty! I still have this one, too, and didn't part with it in the 'great purge' - I love that you've added the beautiful silhouette directly to the paper, and your signature ribbon and lovely addition of the sentiment - this wraps up into a perfect bouquet of a card! Thanks for your enthusiasm on this wild ride of mine :)
