Yesterday was Day 4 in The 20 Project class and Shimelle's challenge was to use some of those "pristine" stamps in our collections. We know the ones, those stamps that are still pristine because we haven't used them yet!
I'd like to say that I, of course, use all the supplies and tools I purchase . . . I'd like to say that, but I can't in all honesty! So, I pulled out a set I purchased at a Stampin' Up meet-up several years ago. As you can see, I hadn't even put the sticker backings on
the rubber stamps! (Although I think I used the telephone stamp one time
a while back.)
I pulled a 5x7 photo from our recent visit to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Museum and was able to gather my supplies fairly quickly - a background patterned paper with books and some patriotic papers and embellishments.
I used the telephone stamp in the bottom right corner and the "Hello there!" stamp on the label in the top left (it doesn't show up very well in the photo).
I also used another "pristine" stamp in the top right embellishment cluster. It's very
subtle - a camera from the Shimelle collection.
D you have any pristine stamps in your collection?
