So, turns out I am really good at making projects… I can even do a pretty good job of photographing my project…um, NOT so good at actually editing and posting my photos! Oops!
I love creating and I love sharing the ideas with everyone because goodness knows how much inspiration I get from seeing the ideas from everyone else. So, this week, I took a day and finished editing over 100 pictures that were left sitting on my computer begging me to post and so today I’m working on getting some of them up and posted!
This card is one I created for the Stampin’ Up Convention Display Boards this summer using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set. Kinda fun figuring out different ways to use this big sentiment stamp.
A Blue Christmas
I had wanted to do something different with the stamp and so I actually colored it with 3 different markers to get the look on my sentiment:
- Start by coloring the letters portion with the Night of Navy marker
- Then color some of the snowflakes around the letters with the Lost Lagoon marker
- Finally color the outermost snowflakes with your Soft Sky marker
I also “got creative” aka layer, layer, layer… and did some coordinating cardstock layers and added a touch of silver by glueing a border of silver baker’s twine around the edge of my sentiment (if you want to do this, I recommend the liquid glue with the green cap and putting a very fine line on your cardstock that you can squish your twine into).
And my accent point, I added some Smoky Slate chevron ribbon and a Subtles button to the corner and frayed the end of my twine a bit for some extra texture.
