I'm not posting that card....I will in a couple of days though....the design I was working with was like no other design, in the end, I will chalk it up to a fun creative experience...it stretched my expertise to the maximum...and what I found...was simplicity was far better than trying to over-do something!
After that 6 month in the making card, however, I re-discovered my passion for paper crafting...and the ideas have been buzzing in my head ever since! I wanted to do something light and fun...quick and easy...and by random, pick a set that I just had to have...I literally have hundreds of those....and that I did.....
The set is from Paper Trey and it's one that has been available for a couple of years....I'm a button addict, and I knew I needed this one! I let the designer paper do most of the work on this one....something I never thought I'd do.....learn and luv to stamp on designer paper. I always thought NOT ME! So, I forced myself to try....and every time I do, I find myself satisfied with the result....I have a little list of NOT ME, NEVER...and I've managed to do 3 of that list on these very cards.
1. Stamp on designer paper, let it be "the design"
2. Sew/stitch (I can't believe I ever said NOT ME! on this....)
3. And I hate to admit...I said NOT ME! to buttons.....long long long ago....wow...confessions of a button addict.....
My little stash of these I'm mailing to long lost friends, I lost touch with so many people...it's good to be back! :) The designer paper was in a Stampin Up! Sale-A-Bration pack that I acquired years ago, the set was another option that a friend gave me to play with! (Thanks Kelly!) I'm glad there are more of the design in the pack...I think I will revisit! :) The clouds are with my "Simply Charmed" Cricut cartridge that my daughter insisted I buy....I reluctantly did, reluctantly, because I wanted something else...I've turned out using this cartridge way more than my others....the kids has a flare for knowing what her mom "must have"!
Have a great day!
