SSInk Blog Hop: Oldest and Newest Stamps


Thanks for joining us for the SSInk July blog hop. We thought it would be fun to combine our oldest stamps with our newest stamps in one project. This is a great way to show how you can keep using your stamps no matter how "old" they are.

Thanks for joining us for the SSInk July blog hop. We thought it would be fun to combine our oldest stamps with our newest stamps in one project. This is a great way to show how you can keep using your stamps no matter how "old" they are. I love this older stamp of mine "Monkey Business". I bought it either right before I signed up to sell Stampin' Up almost nine years ago or right after signing up.  The balloons and sentiment from the new set Birthday Surprise went really well with the cute little monkeys.  I stamped the balloons off the page with Baked Brown Sugar and popped up some colorful tops to give the effect of them floating off the page.
