Thursday Share

I love dabbling with different products....mixing this and stamping that...and am always looking for fun and creative ways to use all of the products I've accumulated over time.  With my daughter recently having gone away to college I like to send her a note every once in a while and as easy as it is to make her a card, it's too much fun to sit and make her some interesting "stationary."
I started with a plain piece of college ruled notebook paper and stamped Yumi and Fumi.
Chinese symbols for child, mother, and love were added.  A foam heart was inked, then stamped.
Washi tape was added, along with a few hearts from a Heidi Swap stencil.
 The sentiments are from a TGF set.

Hello was stamped, then Gelato's and distress stains were applied.
Watercolor pencils and doodling finish the note paper.

I'm sure my daughter is happy to receive her gussied up notebook paper, but I'm thinking she's probably looking for a little more "green" to go along with it...if you know what I mean.

I hope you had fun seeing another way to use these adorable Y&FH stamps and you've been inspired to create a project of your own, if so....we'd love for you to share it with us on our Y&FH FB page.

Lastly, don't forget that the winner of every Yumi & Fumi Handmade bi-weekly challenge wins a $10 g/c to the Y&FH on-line store. It's a win/win for everyone...but you must enter for your chance to win.

Happy Thursday,
have fun creating!
