1. Almost instant purchasing.( and they are CHEAPER)..which mean when I get inspired at 2 am and find something I want to use... I have it now to play with instead of having to wait for a shipment...etc.. ( and no shipping fees!!!!!!)
2. I can manipulate the size....merge it with other images.... and I don't get "oops..marks and smudging when I stamp" because the printer prints it out.
3. They take up no room!!! With 6 people in this house space is at a premium and they all fit nicely on my computer...no space needed. I do back them up to another system ..just in case.... like I do with my photos!.
Now don't get me wrong I love my rubber stamps as well , but they do take up room (particularly the wood mount ones) ... I do opps and smudge sometimes... and they are stuck in the size made....which is fine...but you all know I like to manipulate things (in a good way). Can't say I will never buy a rubber stamp again..because it wont be true..Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps have my heart ...and they are only in rubber. But just like having some great new options. And the Some Odd Girl stamps come in rubber as well!
My Some Odd Girl card featuring the wonderful Puddle hopping Tia, she so reminds me of Serena as a toddler! I colored her using Copics on Curious Mettalics Cryogen White paper. Accented her with some Ranger Glossy Accent eyes and rubber boots. Then with the advice of my wonderful Facebook peeps.. gave her umbrella and the puddle a glossy accent coat with droplets on the umbrella and a hit of Stardust Stickles on the drops and water edge. The whole card (with the exception of the pink dot paper and green flower paper which are scraps) was made using the BoBunny Baby Bump Emphemera pack! These cute little packs have a little bit of everything in them..including a stamp set..paper..ribbon embellishments. They run about $10 dollars here and I bought it on a whim and plee from my daughter because she loved the little dancer pin in it. I accented a few items ..like my dark blue circle with a layer of glossy and a hint of Stickles Stardust here and there. Now there are no inside pictures I just did some simple layering and I plan to stamp my favorite "dance in the rain" qoute ...as soon as I find where I put the stamp...lol..
Hope you enjoy!!!
