Focus on:

Stamps can be used in so many wonderful ways on your projects.  The design team girls put together an awesome sampling of the many ways stamps can be used, from framing your whole project to using the stamped image as an embellishment that can be cut out.  Use a little embossing ink and powder and take your stamp work to a whole new level!  Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy some stamping inspiration!
