Hello! Thanks for stopping by today. You are going to see me jumping back and forth between Fall & Christmas a lot this month. I can't make up my mind about what I want to stamp :)
Do you ever feel like all of your projects look like something else you've done? I feel like I've been doing that a ton lately. I stand at my desk (I can't sit when I stamp!?) and I struggle to come up with something unique. To help mix things up a bit, I'm trying different color combinations. I'd normally choose to use traditional fall colors with these stamps, but I'm on a mission go beyond my comfort zone. Not that this is a crazy combination, it's just enough different to feel fresh and new to me.
To make my card I started by cutting a piece of Vanilla card stock to 3 7/8 x 5 5/8 inches. Next I masked off the top and bottom of the card stock leaving a 1 3/4 inch strip. Using the newly released Autumn Blessings stamp set by CAS-ual Fridays, I stamped first with the outline stamp in Early Espresso ink. Then I filled in with the solid images in Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides and Simply Chartreuse inks and removed the mask. I die cut the Scallop Tag (LOVE!) from Vanilla and the "Blessings" word die from Early Espresso card stock. I placed the word die first and then did the stamping. Lastly, I assembled all of the pieces on an Ocean Tides card base.
I hope your week is off to a great start. I'll be back on Thursday to kick off the Lil' Inker Designs October release. See you then!
