Compulsive Stamp Shopper

Peek Over (Inky Antics) is another stamp that I’ve had for sometime but never used. I know I’ve mentioned this before and probably sound like a broken record, I have a bunch of stamps that have never been inked.

Currently I have a stack of never used Inky Antics sitting on top of Jakes dog crate and another stack of Penny Black, Great Impressions, and Sarah Kay on my desk. Oh my gosh, my cabinets… in my cabinets, I have acrylic trays with more Inky Antics, Happy Hoppers, House Mouse, Gruffies, Great Impressions and other wood mounts that haven’t been used. And if that’s not enough, I have drawers with remounted Stampin’ Up, The Angel Company and Close to My Heart stamps.

One snowy day I’m going to go through all my stamps, pull out the never inked ones, put those in a special place and make myself use those. I’m going to have to set some kind of goal/challenge for myself to quit buying. I’m sure Bryan will be thrilled… ugh! Am I the only with this problem?!

Okay, back to the card. The layout for this card came from Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 196. I made my card 4.5 x 4.5, so I could use this image since it’s a bit smaller. All the cardstock and designer paper is from the Caprice Reflection Kit (Close to My Heart), Caprice is easily turning into my favorite designer paper. I better get stamping using those unused stamps (wink), thanks for visiting ~ Jovi

    Jovi, I can totally relate, but starting my blog is really helping me reach my goal of inking all my stamps.Although, I have been eyeing all the great stamps you have been showcasing, including this darling card!

  3. Another adorable image!!! I hear ya girl! It gets too addictive,they're are just too many new co and images coming out everyday and we want them ALL!!!

  4. Jovi, I'm right there with you. I'm ashamed to admit how many stamps that are currently aging to perfection that haven't been dipped in ink yet. I think it would be a fun challenge to use every stamp. Probably impossible in my case, but a good challenge!

    This card is adorable. My black cat, Merlin, is still missing and this card gives me hope that one day he'll peek over at me.

    Very cute!!

  5. This is soooo adorable...hmmm...wonder if I have this stamp, lol. Actually, I DO leave my stamps out until I use them at least once, otherwise I'd have the same problem ~~ half of them would never see ink!!

  6. A great card, love the colour combo and the image is so cute!

  7. Love your card. I actually do have this stamp. I have stamped it out, colored it and done nothing with it. Maybe your card will get me motivated to turn it into a card of it's own! Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. Fabulous card!! I have a huge pile of stamps I've never ink myself. If they would stop showing us new cute stuff we wouldn't have this problem!!! :)
