Here's just a small selection of what we have received in recent days.
Betsey made this beautiful box stamped, inked masked and embellished beautifully.
She writes: Just wanted to let you know that my recent order arrived a few days ago. I have been having so much fun using them. The stamps are really beautiful and have really helped to motivate me to get stamping again. I have been passionate about stamping for years, but at times, I find that the cares of everyday life take over, and I start to drift away. This past year, I took a new job, and have been extremely busy getting adjusted to it. In the process I have neglected my passion for stamping. This past weekend has inspired me again. I find myself lying in bed, thinking of a new project and doing all I can not to give in to the urge to get going on it!
Well for me the most original things I've done with a PaperArtsy stamp are to alter a jigsaw piece and to make a triptych frame, which had 12 individual inchies on it.
I love your all stamps & certainly don't have enough of them.
