CAS notecards

Made these this week one afternoon... I am still getting used to being back at work, and so the afternoons have found me in the shack, just kind of decompressing from all of the "peopling"!

I decided I would make some notecards with stamps that I had carved.  It was the extent of what my brain could process!  Haha!  I was like, "Make cards with homemade stamps.  Add simple sentiments." DONE!  And I think it was a successful session.

Supplies and notes:
  • Hand carved stamps all inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black (the dog [Millie] was one of the first stamps I ever carved... maybe 3 years ago?  The butterfly was carved in April of 2017, and the heart was carved this March.)
  • Sentiments all written with Tim Holtz Distress Crayon on my mat with water and brushed on
  • The paper is all from a mixed stack from Tuesday morning. (I actually bought another identical pack-- great random colors and good quality.)
I'll share these at the following challenges:


  1. Wow! Your hand carved stamps are lovely! What a sweet set of notecards. Thank you for sharing these at Addicted to Stamps and More!
