Favourite Go To Stamp At FSC

Stamping, fussy cutting, dry embossing, inking, faux leathering, sanding, die cutting and what do we get … just another day in the life of an FSC challenge.  What more could a girl ask for.  So much fun in one little project.

Whilst Skyping with Irene the other day I started a little book with a very pretty cover which was made with the faux leather technique

To begin with there was a little problem with this challenge as my collection of stamps makes it very hard for me to choose a particular favourite one to go to and I have to admit that at first I was a little stumped.  (Love them all how could I choose a fave.)  Then all of a sudden the penny dropped and I new which was my ‘favourite go to stamp’.

When doing any of my background pages a script stamp is invariably what I make a bee line for.  Doesn’t matter which one as long as it’s script.

Here are a couple of the pages inside my little book and if you look closely at the background pages I am sure you will see what I am talking about.

There are loads more pages in the book but as usual no time to take a pic of them all.


I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    Choosing your favourite stamp is a bit like asking to choose between your children! That book looks fantastic and all the faux vintage techniques work well to give it an heirloom feel. Been trying to make 2 projects and going nowhere… it ain’t working today!

    Hi Shirl, as usual sorry for the delay to catch-up with your blog I love, that’s just because of life which is so busy for me.. days really should last much more than 24 hours haha!! 🙂
    Your book made following many techniques looks gorgeous, both inside and outside!! I’m like you, would find very hard to select only one fave stamp among my huge and beloved collection. Hugs xxx

    Hi, Shirl! Your faux leather cover is truly beautiful. The “embedded” fern looks as though it has age in the leather for a century.Love the color choices, textures, and the interior pages are even more beautiful and striking! A gorgeous project! hugs, de
