It’s Saturday, and I hope you all can set aside some time for stamping fun this weekend.
This week was a busy week for me, but I did manage to spend time in my craft room. The Flower and Field Designer Series Paper was sitting at the top of my newer DSP. I looked at it and thought about doing something with it, but didn’t because I had other ideas I wanted to work on. It was crazy, I couldn’t get this pattern out of my head. It’s as if it was saying, “pay attention to me!!” I looked at the paper and saw black, white, red and yellow. By the way, this DSP is FREE with a $50 product purchase during Sale-A-Bration.
Most of my cards are top fold A-2 card bases, so out came my Basic White. After that, I automatically cut a Basic Black thin layer and cut the patterned paper layer. Now what? I kept looking at the flowers on the paper. I finally decided to cut the large poppy from the Poppy Moments dies and then my card began to take on a life of its own. Real Red, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow on Basic Black make a dramatic color combination, all inspired by the patterned paper.
The sentiment is from the Art Gallery stamp set. The sentiments in this set are favorites of mine. I think the size and clean lines of the font are so classic. I had a little fun with this and added a few resin dots.
Maybe, after looking at this Designer Series Paper all week, it was just trying to tell me to have some fun, and I did!!
So, pay attention to that patterned paper that’s on top of your paper stash, look at the colors and let your next project take on a life of its own.
…the only limitation is your imagination!
