Sharing an Easter card that has been received, and so ok to post it here now. When I finish the post, it's back to the Dungeon and hopefully to move some more things around. Found some polymer stamps I'd bought from a fellow stamper some years ago. These were in clear CD cases, and as I tried to lift these stamps, many of them just tore apart (and yes, I was careful too!) It's made me decide I will not buy stuff like this at garage sales nor from anyone else unless I can open the case and check that the contents are still usable. I think there's about 10 cd's with this kind of thing. This would not happen with red rubber I'm thinking. A bit disappointing...but guess I didn't spend a lot of $$$$ on the stamps.Had this happen before with stamps in CD cases -- bought at a big stamp garage sale, where stampers were selling old stuff. Live & learn. If I ever sell anything in this fashion, I will make sure that any products are still in good shape, not ready to fall apart. Not sure if this happens because the clear stamps weren't cleaned properly, or if the material just deteriorates over time and perhaps stored where it was hot. Just sayin', a word to the wise, and I know all of us are always on the lookout to score a nice set at a good price. Maybe you've had this happen too. I'll be keeping my polymer stamps on the material they originally came in. (still could stick to that surface and be difficult to remove, perhaps).
Here's the card, and once again, it's snippets that I've discovered in the housecleaning in the stamp area.
- Can't remember what company the die is from (perhaps a MBox die?). It was cut in white, then colored with copics. Had a white underlayer, then adhered another white one that had been colored.
Think the red mat is a Darice die (NBUS) and tucked some sequins around that repeated the colors in the floral motif. Thought this made a cheery happy Easter card.
Ya'll have a lovely day. Come back when you can! Hugs.
