It can be frustrating when you want to sit down and create something and your mind goes blank. So, I went to my stamps for inspiration today. I was working on a card using the Snowman Magic stamp set. The large sentiment in the set caught my eye, so it became my inspiration for today’s card. I thought I would use the sentiment and create some sort of background with stamps and ink. Looking through my stamp sets, I found the ribbon stamp in the Christmas Scottie set. I thought it would work well with the font in the sentiment. Now I had the elements for my card. And, it felt good to put ink to  paper to create a card. I’ve been using a lot of patterned paper and die cuts lately.

Today’s Card Parts & Pieces

  • I cut a Thick Basic White card base 11″ x 4 1/4″ and scored it at 5 1/2″.
  • The Garden Green mat layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
  • I cut the top Basic White layer 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • The top layer is randomly stamped with the ribbon stamp alternating with Real Red and Garden Green ink.
  • I stamped the sentiment with Real Red ink and die cut it with one of my circle dies. It’s attached to the card front with Dimensionals.
  • I added a few die cut, sparkling snowflakes to the ribbon images and punched a bow using the Scottie Dog Punch.

It’s always fun to do a little decorating on the inside of your card. I do it on most of mine, leaving room for a short personal note.

So, find some great stamps, add some ink, stamp a layer and create something fun, clean and simple to send a magical wish!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
