Love Stamp, but only one?????

 
WARNING!!!!  CHEEKY POST AHEAD
{I just don't know what's gotten into me today?}
 
How many times have you looked at a stamp set and really liked one or 2 stamps.  OMG...that's me every time.  My GF and I just had this chat about this stamp, Stampers Anonymous stamp set Urban Chic.  She was trying to decide if she wanted it.  I said get it and in the end she didn't and now blames me!  It did get me thinking...what a great class this might be...challenge accepted.  Today I'm teaching a class making this card using a stamp set with a great stamp or 2...but what to do with the rest of the OK stamps?
 
JUST STAMP THE SHIT OUT OF THE DAM THING
{I did warn you}
 
...and make your own Designer Paper with your not so favorite stamps.  You know what...these frilly, girlie stamps are actually growing on me now that I've layered them. 
 
But only just a little. 


 
I layered these not so attractive CHICK stamps using a few TH inks, Spun Sugar, Warn Lipstick and Walnut Stain. 
 
This Walnut Stain Ink is like the "Bread to my Butter", "Peanut Butter to my Jelly"...that shit goes on everything!!! Kinda like the Franks Red Hot Sauce!
 
 
I cut the these tiny strips too small on purpose.  I wanted the stamp to spill over.  So be sure to distress the edges first and ink them, glue them into place and then STAMP!  I know...all backwards but you can do it.  If you need a moment to wrap your crafty brain around this method you can take it...
 
{Taking a Moment....}
{Shhhhh....}

 
Grab a few inks light, darker and then a contrast ink to create a layered look.

 
No embellishments, no ribbon, no glitter!  I know...I'm off my rocker today.  But really, next time you're looking at that stamp set with the KICK ASS stamp and boring other stamps.  Pause...and maybe look at it differently!
 
NOW GO STAMP SOME PAPER! 
{Ya, I caps yelled at you.}
