It's been a long time since I've spent almost the entire weekend creating. Playing with my stamps, ink and paper. This weekend, I did just that. I spent both days creating with some new stamp sets and ink. Intersperesed between the play time I was able to do laundry, some cleaning, some errands and some napping. It was a good weekend. Trevor is away on business in Alaska, so I did miss our rituals of coffee at L'Opera down the road and I missed having him around....but he's back next Sunday!
The set has a matching punch that is used to punch out the 3 flowers -- perfect for 3D cards.
After stamping the flower images using Old Olive ink, I flipped the punch upside down so that I could easily align the images to the punch, allowing me to punch out the flowers with little effort!
Here are the flowers, ready for me to add them to my project. I did so using 3D dots to add dimension.
Below are the finished cards. I made 3 of them, all using the same basic design but each with a different greeting.
Below is a closer look.
I think they turned out pretty cool. Simple, uncluttered, clean. My style.
The weekend is over. I enjoyed my creative time....but think that it might be sometime before I can have another weekend like this. Life is very busy ..... so I am grateful to have been able to do this. And while it might not happen immediately, I do plan to have another weekend creating sooner or later.
Have a good week everyone. Be kind, be happy and always be grateful for everything you have.
