Hello Stampers! Hope you all had a great weekend. Did you do any stamping? When you create your cards you should send a good photo via email to me and I’ll post them on my blog with you as my guest stamper. A couple stampers have done this, so give it a try. We all like to see other stampers cards. We each have our own style so it’s nice when you get to see a variety of styles.
I have discovered that I love the Timeless Tags Thinlits! They are really so versatile. Here’s an Easter card I played around with.
I often like to show you my first attempt at a card and then tell you how I might change it. Creativity is a process! I LOVE the thinlit! To make this flower come alive I had to die cut each color and then carefully glue each little piece in it’s proper place. This is too time consuming to do in a class but well worth the effort.
Here’s the inside of the card. I used Delicate Details (FREE SAB item) and the retired Easter Blessings for the Occasions 2013 catalog. I will never part with this stamp! It is the perfect size, font and sentiment!
So, this is what I think I would change. First I’d emboss the whole front of the card – with either Sparkle or Lovely Lace Embossing Folders. I think the banner down the middle overpowers the card so I think I’d do a stitched shape…maybe even a square. That bow has to go…a different ribbon or even Baker’s Twine. I’ll try to do another today in a different color combo and have it ready for my Friday post.
