I was searching the web today for some inspiration to get me started with stamping again, and I found this fabulous weekly challenge. This is exactly what I needed to get me going - I went ahead and made 7 other cards while I was at it. This got my juices flowing.
I've been trying to use some of my retired Stampin'Up! DSP, and I think this was from about a year ago. I loved it so much when I bought it that I didn't want to use it, and I wanted to save it. Now I'm left with almost a whole package of it. Time to use it up.
The stamp used is from the Trendy Trees stamp set, and was stamped with Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery ink. I accented with Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery cardstock. The hardware was from the Stampin'Up! Hodgepodge Hardware set. The flower brad was distressed a bit by running it along the Always Artichoke stampin' pad. I like how it breaks up the heavy brad on the card and does not seem so overpowering when I stamp a smaller image. The ribbon is Certainly Celery.
Welcome to my site!!
I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
