Another Yard Sale Find! { Stamps Happen! }


Yesterday, my sister and I went junkin at a small town about twenty miles from where we live. They were having a "city-wide" sale with over 30 yard sales. We had *so* much FUN and really found some terrific bargains. I did find a couple rubber stamps and this is one of them. It's "His Symphony" by Stamps Happen and I paid 50 cents for it! :) I've stamped it with onyx black Versafine instant dry pigment ink and colored it with prismacolor pencils. This is a large image and my finished card measures 5x7".


For the photo corner in the upper right, I punched a small 1/4" square and then centered it in my 1-1/4" square punch. Once that was punched out, I cut it in half and wah-lah...you have two photo corners! Does this make sense? It wasn't my original idea and I don't recall where I saw it, but I sure like the look! The blue accent piece on the left side has been Cuttlebugged with the tiny bubbles embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Have a wonderful day! Smiles, Pam : )


p.s. I almost forgot to tell you what else I found yesterday! Probably one of my *best* finds... two pair of beautiful sterling silver earrings for only 50 cents each! They are just the style I wear! I'll have to take a photo of them for you to see. Stay tuned!

I love those photo corners! Perfect touch. You did a great job on that stamp. I usually tend to over paint it and yours is just right.

Nice job with the garage sale finds!

Great card! The thing I love about those kinds of finds is, having made one card with this stamp, you've already gotten your money's worth out of it:)
