Thank U

I was searching around on blogs yesterday and found this great picture on Design*Sponge, and I've attached it here.I immediately thought about how cute that would look as a card. I didn't have the perfect paper that I wanted, but I did find some paper that would make do. Here is the card that I made, as part of the Stamp Something challenge to create a card using a layout that I created or one that I found somewhere:

I used some old Stampin' Up! DSP that I had around and cut out the circle with my Circle Scissor Plus (what a fabulous tool).

Tips from this card:
-In a sentiment, cut the words out, and then piece them back together on your card. Not only does it allow you to fit your sentiment into a different space than the stamp intended, but it changes up the same sentiment.

I used the following product on this card (all product Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: wow - Define Your Life (114950), Calendar Alphabet & Numbers (111610)
Paper: WhisperWhite (100730), Retired DSP
Ink: Not Quite Navy (103008)
Accessories: Circle Scissor Plus (112530), Round Tab Punch (108340), Vintage Brads (109109), Retired Stampin' Up! Baja Breeze Ribbon, Scrap of white ribbon

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.
