So I was talking yesterday on Facebook about challenges and how they can be pretty handy when you need a little something to jump-start some craftiness. I’m still looking for feedback on favorite challenge sites and what types of challenges you find most fun to do, but in the meantime, I have one to share with you!
I’m a member of the Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration design team and each month we host a color challenge. I checked out the colors we were set to work with this time and thought this was a neat color combo that mixes up colors and color families for a great spring combo.
Now, all that said, I loved the combo but stalled out initially with what I was going to do with it…. but I started with a flower stamp set, the new Naturals Chevron Ribbon, and the So Saffron core’dinations cardstock paper and began to go it. Very quickly I ditched the flower stamps and soon this card emerged:
Yay! They totally work together!
All the stamping is from the new Perfect Pennants stamp set and yes – those hearts are cut out by hand… but I SWEAR it goes fast!
I kept adding a little detail here and a little detail there and I think it all added up to just the right about of interesting going on… do you think?
Anyway, I think this sentiment is perfect for me to share right now because I’m getting all packed up and ready to head to Houston for the Leadership convention this week and one of the big things going on with me right now in my Stampin’ Business is figuring out how I can make my blogging and creative sharing more useful and meaningful to you. So think of this as a little love note to you….wishing you all the best and hope I can help make it a little brighter and nicer along the way.
