Did you know that Buzz and bloom also offers stamps? They have it in rubber and acrylic too! For my assignment, I was asked to use these gorgeous rubber stamp on my page. And here is my page.... For this project, I used UMS: Pretty Things III unmounted rubber stamps. I used it as a photo corner and a light background in by paper base...

I stamped the image, embossed it, cut into half diagonally, and there you have it - elegant photo corners!I used another stamp from the same sheet to give additional texture to my background. I also embossed it, but this time shook off some of the powder for a lighter feel.Title: Us

2 b ur Mom... - Kaya 24 entry

Mother's day is fast approaching so I've decided to create this layout featuring me and my little boy Harvey. Made this for our local challenge blog in which my friend Bjay was hosting this months challenge. The challenge was to create a layout with your picture on it plus we have to use stamps and non stamp material (to be used as stamps).
Here is my take....
closer look....
Title: 2 b ur Mom...
Journaling: ...its the most precious thing in the world. it's hard but its fun. its scary but its the most fulfilling. I would never exchange that for anything else. Im just so proud to be your mom
Materials:White Cardstock; Chatterbox Fabulous Papers and felts; Chatterbox Diecuts; Chatterbox Stamps; Ac thickers; Inque boutique Chipboard; Stazon ink - black and Color box ink
Techniques: Used my butterfly stamps as embellies on my page. I rarely use my stamps hihih! Used Stazon ink on it and stamp then cut! I had a hardtime thinking of what non-stamp material should i use. Then I saw this hair accessories and use it to stamp on the edges of my page to give it a distressed look.
