Something Old, Something New!

It's not a wedding! I just want to share an old card and a new card! The other day I had an idea while I was looking to the Spanish Sentiment set and the Spanish Seasonal Cuties! I have been wanting MORE Spanish sets, of course! But I have to work with what I have, right? so my idea was that since we have some sentiments that can be use for more ocassions with just something else I ordered a customp stamp with the word "Mamá" (Mom), that way I can do different phrases just for mom! so I will have even MORE options with what I have on hand. Yesterday I got my order and here is the result! I combine the Spanish Sentiment "para tí" (for you) phrase with my new custom stamp and I love it!!! Now I need to order more custom stamps and I will have more options to use in my cards! of course "Papá" (Dad) is next!

Don't you love this girl? It's from the Cupcake Cuties set and it have been on my table for long time waiting for me!!! I designed the card using a retired paper (Bella Flor) and the Nestabilities Label One set. I have it finished there for a couple of days waiting for the Mamá stamp to come!

Why to share an old card with you? Well since TAC announced the Final Farewells list I have been looking into it to know wich ones I have and wich ones I need to order! While I was doing that I noticed that some of my most used stamps are there, so I decided to share some old cards done with those sets that I love so very much, because I don't want you miss them and now is the best time to get them with 25% off! right?

Here the stamps I used: Enjoy nature (on sale $6.71), Wishing you Hapiness (on sale $6.71) and Friendship Strips (on sale $16.46) (this set is sooooo versatile! imagine ALL the backgrounds you can design with it!)

Wishing you a great day and a fabulous week!

Great cards, Diana! I forget about personalized stamps...there are so many great uses for them.

That second card is awesome, LOVE it

Great idea with the personalized stamp... didn't think about doing a custom saying, just thought of name/contact info! Love your cards, going to have to play around making backgrounds with my friendship strips set... I will miss it... or not since I already have it LOL
