Hey, Hey, Hey stampers!
Welcome to my blog today and thank you for joining me as I go blog hopping with my creative stamping pals over at the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop!
This month's theme is birthdays.....and I will be honest....I was having a creative block! Everything I tried was a total fail. Do you ever have a creative block?
Well, when that happens to me I either find a sketch to get me started, or grab my catalog and find a sample for inspiration to get my creative juices flowing.
I went to the annual catalog on page 9, and there is a card sample that gave me inspiration....it is the card with the red arrow:
Stamps, paper, dies, and accessories for creating whatever you want—let your creativity run free!
- 11-piece photopolymer stamp set
- 48 sheets of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper,
- Very Vanilla 6" x 6" dry embossed sheets
- die cuts with gold foil accents
- Night of Navy 1/2" Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon, 10 yards
- Very Vanilla/gold 1/4" Pleated Ribbon, 10 yards
- paper flowers, 20 each in 2 sizes;
- 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies
Ok....so here is my card:
As you can see, a few simple changes like an embossed background and a card base that shows behind DSP, changing up the die-cut elements, and adding alternate embellishments gives this card a totally different look.
Now it really helped that I had this FABULOUS kit with loads of options and elements to use. The only stamping I did on this card was the greeting- crazy eh!
(As I was proofreading this post, I laughed out loud at the "crazy eh" that I typed above. Nothing like typing a post as if you were speaking aloud! I was going to remove it, but decided not to....it is me....and I thought you might get a smile or a laugh...so it stays!)
If you wish, I have a video tutorial on this card, and one more made with this FABULOUS that can be found here:
Remember....this kit is retiring.....if you want it .....order now before they are gone!
Now hop on over to the next blog for some more creative goodness:
