Something New in '22 - October

I have a lot of stamps - from a lot of companies. When my husband walks into my Play Room, he sometimes looks around and suggests that I'm single-handedly trying to keep the stamping companies in business. Nah! I know many of you are helping that cause, too. 

So why would I start a new series this year that requires me to buy new stamps??? Because it's going to be fun.

Something New in '22

The concept is to find a new (to me) stamp company each month, to purchase a stamp/set and create a card. Once a month. Twelve companies. Twelve stamp sets. Doesn't that sound fun?!?!?!?! (I see your head nodding in agreement.)

This month's company is Lisa Horton Crafts. I had not heard of them until very recently and quickly made a purchase of a stamp/die set. A word of caution - when ordering, one should read the details. I was so surprised when the package arrived. This is a VERY large stamp set, even though it only has three stamps in it. Not one to be deterred by a challenge, I decided to ink it up right away - well, as soon as I could get it loose from the plastic sheet. Ay yi yi! 

The floral stamp I used is the smaller of the two images in the set. It really is a beauty.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The floral image really jumps out against the background Jeanette - what a lovely stamp, and a stunning card.
I too got 'caught' with measurements, only with some tiny dies, but they worked together nicely when I played recently.
