Embarrassing First Use Of Stamp

A day late posting for this month’s challenge at FSC, so sorry, the theme is “One For The Girls” which the lovely Dot has picked.

The main focal point on my journal page is a fabulous dylusions stamp by Dyan Reaveley.
Yet another one of those stamps which hadn’t been inked until today, but she was bought in 2014!!!

Read on to see how I knew exactly when I bought it.

I first saw this stamp on my teamies blog Avril – you can see her lovely make here.  It gave me so much inspiration.
That was in August 2014… promptly bought the stamp and you can guess the rest … didn’t even use it.

To be fair moi didn’t realise how big she was.

Avril used it on another gorgeous piece here in February 2015 –
you should read my comment then – so totally embarrassing – not for Avril but for me.

Another stunning make here yet again from Avril in September 2016.
My comments are now making me red faced because the poor stamp has only just seen ink …

over three years later and I think it is now discontinued.


Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.

Ink Art Designs Etsy Shop is sponsoring FSC and they will be offering a stamp for the winner of each new challenge.

My art journal is also dylusions but again it was bought years ago and this is only the second page used.
First pages below.

To be fair I don’t think I am the only one like this, most crafters take ages to use their stash.

 The book is Dylusions Creative Journal and the stamp set is called – ‘Walk In The Park’.  Not sure if both are discontinued.

    Hi, Shirl! No need to be embarrassed – like you, I have stamps which have never seen ink – and they are older than yours! It’s a pretty stamp set, and you’ve used it marvelously well. I like those amazing journal pages, too! Your colors always come out so pretty with the deepness of layers. Wishing you a fantastic day!

    A fabulous journal page Shirley and I’m so please this lady has now seen the ink!
    Love the background and the softness you’ve given her.
    Love the other journal pages, the soft colours work really well with all the amazing textures you created.
    Thanks for the mention,
    Avril xx

    Wow Shirley, this is fantastic. Love the background and the image.
    I also like the other page very much.
    Hugs Carola

  4. Hi Shirley,
    It’s good that you are using stamps that haven’t been inked – and this one is gorgeous. To me it has a bit of a french flair to it, a classic. It’s a shame if it’s discontinued.
