I begin with one element, sometimes it's a piece of cardstock, a ribbon, an embellishment like a button. Sometimes, I create based on what I know I have handy and need to use up (and have enough of for all my class attendees!) It's really pretty random.
So, last week, when I went into my studio to make cards for my Best of 25 Class, I began with a piece of Primrose Petals Co'ordinations cardstock - because I have a LOT of it for some reason.
And it's pretty, so it's a win-win!
Here's the completed card:
I stamped my focal images from the Best of Sale-A-Bration stamp set on Naturals White cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed them with Gold embossing powder. The cardstock is sponged with Crumb Cake ink before being mounted on the polka dot paper. That entire section is mounted to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I used the Daydream Medallion stamp set to stamp and emboss the lacy circles on the card base. I love the delicate touch it adds to the card.
Little bits of leftover ribbon were used under the button and I used some burlap strings to tie into the button itself.
Well, we're expecting about 8 inches of snow here today, so that's perfect weather to get into the studio and stamp something fun. I'm having knee surgery on Thursday, so I'm trying to get ahead of my schedule a bit. I'm not sure stamping on pain meds would work out too well.
Or, maybe it would - you never know!
