THAT Stamp!

A Christmas Carol by Papermania - I have wanted that stamp for such a long time and eventually tracked one down in April without having to pay a silly price for it. Anyway, I was bitterly disappointed when it arrived as it had not been mounted straight on its wooden block and there seemed to be a dip in the middle and I couldn't get a good impression from it. Well, I took the bull by the horns yesterday and put it in the microwave to get the rubber off then remounted it straight and used a stamping mat underneath, and hey presto, we have a card! I used a Brilliance inkpad which gives a lovely sheen to the image. I have kept the card very simple to let the stamp do the talking. What do you think?


  1. Hi Janny,
    This is a beautiful card. I love how you have stamped some extra.
    I just got this stamp myself and I was surprised how big it was.
