Welcome to our
Aniversary Blog Hop.
Six years ago I decided to start this group
and now we have over 500 members.
If you like the stamps Michael Strong
designs, you are welcome here:
I hope you came over here from Laura's Blog
and her story about how she became a
member of this group.
This my story:
I loved watching TV Weekly
and one day Michael Strong showed a card
using his heart stamp. Here you can see
the video too (click on the arrow of the picture blow,
or go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cni0c0nebdY)
I ordered the heart stamp right away,for I wanted to use
it for making the wedding card for my daughter.
I did not want to copy Michael's card, so this
is the card that became her wedding card:
Now I use the heart stamp every year to make
an anniversary card for my DD and her DH:
A mini heart is being added, for they have a little son now.
The background of this card is made with bistre/bister powder.
The large hearts are stamped and embossed with white
embossing powder. The little heart with red embossing powder.
In April 2008 I met Michael Strong in person at
a stamp show and helped him out at his booth.
As payment I received some of his stamps.
So what to do with all these stamps, besides stamping........
Yes, I decided to start a group and share
all the fun ideas of these stamps and inspire
others to use the stamps.
At first I made a card every day for over a year,but than
a friend came up with the idea: Card Captain.
One member sharing a card from Monday to Friday.
We have been doing this ever since and Iam
very thankful for all of you who do this.
This card is made with Michael's pot stamp
in combination with the Workof Art stamp set
by Stampin 'Up! and the bistre/ bister powder.
I share a card with the group every Saturday
and a scrapbookpage every Sunday.
Hope I can go on doing this group,
with your help,for many more years.
Now here is the list of all participants:
11. Hetty - you are here!
And now on to the inspiration of
the master himself.
