Rose Gardening Bibs

Have I mentioned how nuts I am about Impression Obsession stamps? Well I am! This Rose Gardening Bibs stamp is just adorable. I can think of a number of people for whom a card using this stamp would be perfect.

But.....somehow on the way to card creation this first card I made using it just didn't quite hit the mark. I'm not at all happy with the outcome of the card but I'll go ahead and post it for now until I make another that I'm more pleased with.

I colored the bibs with prisma color pencils. The designer paper is Martha Stewart. Our Walmart had a huge pad on sale of 12 X 12" size and 24 sheets in 12 different yet coordinating designs and I couldn't pass this paper up. It has so many coordination possibilities and I love the paper.

So for today I will post a not so hot card, but one I am confident I'll come up with a design in the future that will work. This stamp is just too cute not to want to use it over and over.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Why on EARTH would you not be happy with this card Ms Jennifer? I think it's simply ADORABLE, just as it is...beautifully coloured, perfectly coordinated...what more could it NEED? Love it!

  2. Jennifer, I love how you painted your image, added your embellishments and your words too! You have an award on my blog. I can't wait to see your future posts.

  3. Yeah, it does have a problem. Them yeller daisy things. It's a ROSE card! You should have used ROSES where you put all those other blobs and it would be PERFECT! If it was rose season instead of nearly flake season, I'd go stand among my bushes in my bibs and you'd see how much better things look when they're surrounded by roses. I'm sure I'd look almost passable. Now stop being so hard on yourself and go stamp some more IO stuff.

  4. Very pretty!!! I think it looks great! This is a very cute stamp!

  5. lol...this card is really awful that you should get rid of it right away...I will send my address...LOL!! You are silly...I LOVE this card, it's beautiful Jennifer!! I also love the boots in the cards below! Love how you added the glaze to them!! Beautiful work!
