Pootles SpringWatch 2017 Bookcase Builder Quick Card

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles SpringWatch 2017 Bookcase Builder Quick Card

SpringWatch Giveaway for today – Bookcase Builder Stamp Set – details on how to enter at the bottom

Ah a fast card that’s full of fun and charm. That’s what I think this card delivers today and I had fun playing with it. I think many of us first saw this stamp set and couldn’t not see shelves with ‘stuff’ on, but possibly couldn’t think of a project for it. And there’s nothing wrong with that! I was the same. All I could see were books on shelves, but actually, I don’t keep books on shelves these days. At least, not in my room. I’m a Kindle girl, although the boys’ shelves groan under the weight of their books!

So perhaps less about books on shelves and more about those things we keep there – vases, ornaments, decorative items….

My card however isn’t anything to do with shelves whatsoever! I just randomly scattered ‘baby’ images across my card. Cute isn’t it? This is definitely a set where you take some time to spot those delicate images. Did anyone else completely miss the baby bottle on there?

I love these kinds of stamp sets, the hidden gems in them!

Have a super day!
