Happy Monday friends! My personal goal this week is to blog everyday. I honestly feel so much more creative when I'm practicing it daily. Is that weird? Am I the only one? Things have been so busy lately with my job, Practicing Creativity (speaking of a new release starts Thursday), submissions, and life. I really don't understand how those of you with kids do it!
I thought I'd get the week started off with one of my favorite challenges:
Practicing Creativity stamps. Well, and for full disclosure I'm way low on patterned paper ... or way low of anything I haven't used and used and used. I'm trying not to buy any until CHA next month (Are you going? Let me know!).
Here's what I came up with. And I have to tell you, since I've moved to my new room I'm having lighting issues. I don't know if it's all the extra lighting I have in here, but something is giving off a serious orange glow. So frustrating.
For the Love of Dots to stamps so large vintage cream dots in the background. Unfortunately I think my ink is running out, because you can just BARELY see them. And I used the tree from Barefoot Summer.
1. Make card from cardstock and cut slightly smaller piece of So Saffron cardstock.
2. Stamp dots on So Saffron cardstock. Adhere and sew around edges.
3. Stamp tree and sentiment on stripe of cream cardstock.
4. Punch two stripes of scallops adhere on to cream cardstock.
5. Tie bow around piece and adhere.
