After re-organizing my entire house,
sorting through my stash, and creating easily accessible ‘stash buster’ piles, my creative will has had something of a uplift. No plastic surgery involved! This is my first card creation for quite some time. I’m hoping there are many more to come. Due to my lack of organization (up to now), i’m not sure what all the things in my stash are. Especially the stamps, as many of them have become separated from their larger sets. But i will mention names where i can, in case your interested.
This card creations began….
with a rather sorrowful piece of green card at the top of the cast-offs box.
I have stamped this with stamps from a whispers set. I think it might of been called geometric – or something like that. I’ve used ‘dots’ and ‘flowers’ and stamped them in whispers archival inks in ‘green leaf’ and ‘ savory green’. I’ve then stamped it with the ‘thinking of you’ text stamp, from a friskars Heidi Grace set called ‘Wild Daisy Road’. Thank you Google goggles for that one – what did we do before android apps? ‘I’ve used the daisy flourish from the same set, and embossed both in gold. After die cutting (labels die, i believe),I’ve edged it with metallic gold marker.
I’ve stamped and embossed the base card with a large daisy stamp from the ‘wild daisy road’ set. Then I created a flower embellishment from some die cuts in the ‘use it or loose it’ stash, i believe these are tattered florals, I’ve inked them in pink. Then stamped and gold embossed with the smaller flower stamp from the geometric set. Next i’ve edged them in gold and shaped them slightly. I stacked them up and popped them on a flower brad, which i topped with a gem. I’ve stuck everthing on the base card, the ‘thinking of you’ label is raised, and I’ve added a few more gems. Voila, all done.
