Hello Friend!

Hello friends!

Today I have a card that was made using a stamp set in a bit of an unexpected way.  See, the stamp set I used to make my card is called "Winter Wishes" by Wplus9, not typically used on funky cards for friends.  However, by stamping the medallion images in some bright colors and pairing it with a sentiment from another set, this stamp set is transformed and can be used all year long!  I am sure I have told you before that I am all about versatility, any way to make the most out of every dollar spent.  I love it :)   I used this same idea on a card that was published in the new Stamp It! Cards.  I haven't scanned my copy yet, but I'll do that soon.

Give it a try, check out your stamps and see what set you can transform.  I'd love to see what you make!

*My color palette was inspired by this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge.

I am also playing in the Stamp It! Cards "Hello Card" Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
