Confessions of a Whimpy Stamper

Here is a card I made using the rocket from Pun Fun. I am not very inspired by that particular stamp, but this card by my sister had me giving it another look. I should have left it on the shelf. Oh well, not every card can be a masterpiece, right?

For a card I stopped caring about partway through, I sure stressed over stamping "You're a blast." Anyway, that is my confession. I am a scared stamper. I have a hard time stamping small images without rolling the stamp and making it blurry, or not getting it fully stamped. So I test and test, ad infinitum.

This picture shows the portion of my practice paper where I kept testing. There were more than that, but I think there are around 15 or 16 in that one area. You would think with that much practice, it would be perfect. Oh, to be a fearless stamper.


Have a fun day!

I love the colors and the glaze on the space ships. Very well done. I like the way your sister used dew drops to make it look like a popped out window.

I love this stamp set! Your card is great! I am a fearless stamper who doesn't own a stamp-a-ma-jig and has learned all kinds of tricks for covering mistakes as a result!
