Be Creative

It has been almost two weeks and we are still in the process of cleaning up from the flood the washing machine gave us.   Getting everything cleaned up has been the main thing so my card making has almost been put on hold.  I have very little time for cardmaking, but it is always in the back of my mind and creeps in with oh I want to use that stamp set and make a card.  I have several sets I have never used and I must use them before all the new stamps are upon us.

I am using the Paper Players Sketch Challenge 390 for my design today. 

I wanted to use one of the unused stamp sets. I really like this stamp set and can see myself using it again.  I have to give Joanne Cantrell, from Illinois credit for my wanting this Crafting Forever Stamp Set.  She had a cute card at OnStage Atlanta and I ask her the name of the stamp set.

I started with a card base of Berry Burst. The mat is Color Therapy DSP matted on Whisper White card stock and then matted to the Berry Burst card base. The circles are cut using the layering circle framelits.  The Ribbon wrapped around the matted panel is Berry Burst ½ inch Finely Woven Ribbon.

I stamped the art pieces on thick Whisper White cardstock using Memento Black Ink.  I colored them using an Aqua Painter and Retired Watercolor crayons.  I applied Wink of Stella Glitter heavily thinking it would show up better in a picture, but found out differently when I took pictures.

The inside sentiment is also from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set, stamped in Berry Burst on Whisper White.  I stamped the Statement of My Heart on one of the cards from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.  The Statement of My Heart is so appropriate for this card as it says Do Something Creative Every Day.


That’s all for today. Hope you enjoy and return soon.
