I have had a bit of a lack of creativity lately, so today I decided just to go and stamp for fun. I did use the sketch from Retro Sketches as a starting point. I turned to my favorite color Crumb Cake as my base. I added a layer of Summer Starfruit that was stamped in the same color with the Dictionary background stamp. Next, I pulled out the flower looking stamp from the retired set Day of Gratitude and using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I lined up the stamp. It turned out kinda neat, almost creating a wallpaper effect. Next I wrapped some twine around the layer and added a gold Glimmer Brad. The next step was the sentiment, which is from the new photopolymer set Another Thank You. I punched it out using the Decorative Label Punch. I punched it several times, making it small to fit the sentiment better. Finally, I sponged pretty much every layer with some Crumb Cake ink to add a bit of definition. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the weekend!
Hope you are having a great weekend. Mine was quite busy hence the lack of posts over the last couple days, but I was able to get in some stampin’ this morning. The color challenge at Fab Friday this week is great for a fall themed card. I used a base of Chocolate Chip which, I will admit, I hardly ever used. Ever since Early Espresso came out, I have a hard time using Chocolate Chip, but I think it goes nicely with this card. I small layer of Soft Sky is tucked behind the main layer of Very Vanilla. I pulled out the leaf stamp from the set Day of Gratitude. I stamped it randomly in Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Soft Sky. I created a small flag for the sentiment from the set Sincere Salutations. It is backed on a piece of Sahara Sand. If you like this color combination, be sure to check out the new Sweater Weather DSP in the Fall catalog!Thanks for stopping by!
What…? A Thanksgiving card? Well the challenge over at Addicted to CAS is to create a holiday card. Since I am not quite in the Christmas spirit yet, I decided to make a Thanksgiving card. I drew my sketch inspiration from the card at CASE Study. I started out with a base of Soft Suede and added a layer of Pool Party. I chose a circular shape to mimic the wreath on the CASE Study card. I stamped the images in the retired color More Mustard. I added a flag with the sentiment from the set Day of Gratitude and a retired Pool Party button tied with Linen Thread. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello fellow stampers!
Today I created a card for the challenge over at Fab Friday. For some reason, this challenge was very hard for me which is surprising because the sketch seems very simple. I just could not find a stamp that I wanted to use. So I pulled out a leaf of all things! I had to substitute Pumpkin Pie for Tangerine Tango (but my Tangerine Tango is on its way from Stampin’ UP!). I created a flagged banner with Island Indigo cardstock and folded over one edge and secured it with a couple of brads. The Thanks A Million stamp comes from the set Delightful Dozen. By using these colors, I played a long over at The Friday Mashup too! Thanks for looking!
Today I created a card for CASology using leaves. I would definitely describe by style as clean and simple so this is a great challenge for me. I immediately knew what stamp set I wanted to use so I chose the leaves from the set Day of Gratitude. I left a lot of open space to focus on the simplicity of the leaves and finished the card off with a rub-on sentiment.
