Fintastic Friends

This is for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. What a fun sketch! I don't know why, but lately when I start a card (especially a challenge card), I have the hardest time deciding which stamp set to use. Believe me, I have no shortage of stamp sets! For whatever reason it takes me 10 minutes to decide on what to use! I decided on Whale Wishes because I haven't used it in a little while. That's how I've been deciding on which set to use. . .what hasn't been inked in a while. Have you ever had a slump where none of your stamp sets really talk to you? Nothing motivates you? I think that's where I am right now. I need to freshen my outlook on my stamps!

You can barely see it in the photo, but I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities Square template for the focal image. I cut it out and embossed the edge with the die. It really is a neat and subtle effect. Thanks for stopping by today! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Whale Wishes; Paper- Groovy Guava, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, DCWV turquoise, Wild Asparagus pp; Ink- Groovy Guava, Certainly Celery; Accessories- black marker, paper piercer, celery, coral and turquoise grosgrain, small oval punch, Making Memories brads, Nestabilities square die.

Charmaine, that turned out soooo cute! Love the paper with the set..the colors, everything goes so well together!
I have the same problem you have picking sets. Aren't we lucky to have to think about which one too use? LOL
Does that mean we have too many sets? NO, that can't be it, right? I don't think there is a thing as too many sets.
