Good morning! I mentioned on my last post that I hosted the Hero Arts 90-Minute Scramble this past weekend -- soooo much fun! My challenge was to use the "filler" stamps that come in almost every stamp set to create the focal point on your card... Thought I would share the second card I created as an "inspiration piece" for the Scramblers... (I am happy to announce that, in the interest of fairness, I created both of my cards in 90-minutes -- not the same 90 minutes, mind you, but 90 minutes nonetheless! Turns out I can work within time constraints when the pressure is off! Who knew?!?)
This card was so fun to make and I am super-proud of it! The topiary is made using the filler stamps I have highlighted in the pics below. I created a "mask" by punching my 7/8" and 1-1/4" circles in scrap paper and lining them up on my cardstock. I then stamped the little flowers and just "masked" them with hole-punched paper pieces while I stamped the little leaves and branches. Pretty darn easy! :)
See the little "filler" pieces I used?? Too easy and so fun!
I made this card with two challenges in mind... I wanted to make a "Hello" card for Stamp It! Cards The Hello Challenge in the Moxie Fab World and I chose my colors for this card based on the color inspiration board over at The Play Date Cafe this week. Love the pinks and greens -- has to be one of my favorite color combinations!! Check out their color board:
Thanks for stopping by! I am off work today -- woo-hoo! -- and plan to get a few necessary (ugh!) things done and then spend some much-needed time in my craft room! Here's hoping life is allowing you some craft-therapy time, too! :)
