I tend to save almost every card that someone gives to me. If it is meaningful, I will keep the card in tact and save it so that I can look at it again someday. For example, when my two year old Bodhi was born, I mostly saved the cards where someone made a positive remark about his name. That way I can show him them when he gets older. But, there were a lot of other cards with beautiful images that I saved that maybe someone just signed and I guess I felt that I could reuse the card to make my own. The cards here are just some samples of what you might do with scrap paper, old cards, practice stamped images, etc.
Sometimes I may add to the image like these examples:
|The red piece was the part of an envelope. The black "woof" was me testing out my new stamp.|
|The narrow strips of paper were in my scrap paper pile and the stamped image was just another test.|
or sometimes I may just use the image as is mounting the picture on colored paper:
