Flowers and Polka Dots

More challenges today. I'm sick at home, and using my down time to relax and do some stamping. My creativity is a little low, so these challenges are giving me a good starting point for today. This card was made for both the Curtain Call Color Challenge and the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The challenge for Cute Card Thursday was green and pink, and the Curtain Call Color Challenge was Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Kraft, and Very Vanilla. Here's what I came up with:

I used the For All You Do Stamp Set. I stamped four stems using Sahara Sand Ink (closest thing I had to the Kraft color). I then stamped flowers in Melon Mambo and Certainly Celery and cut out the flowers. I punched holes in each flower and inserted a brad. I wrapped jute twine around the base of the stems and added a button from the Playground Designer Buttons.

The images on the right were all cut with the Scallop Square punch. Polka dots were stamped in Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo, and Certainly Celery, and the sentiment came from this same stamp set.

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.
