Life is strange how we want to save our favorite creations for special moments or just the right time. I have been holding on to this card for a few weeks waiting for just the right moment to share it! Why, because I wanted you to love it as much as I do. Because, I was proud of the card and the moment had to be just right. Truth be told, there is no better time than now!!! Each creation deserves to be shared with the world. Weather it is a masterpiece painting, a beautiful piece of music, or a wonderful paper creation. Art is ment to be shared. We create because it lives and breathes within us! We share our creations to bring joy to others. Creating can be very personal even in paper crafting, those creations that mean the most to us are sometimes the hardest to share. They contain a piece of our soul. And it is hard share that with others… I often hold on to my favorite creations, like they are security. Well, today is the day I say no more!!! I’m sharing it all! Every card gets mailed or given away or sold so someone besides me can find a little happiness in the world!! Let’s all make this world better by being givers of art! Share our passion to make cards with those around us! It is The Creative Way after all –
- Set back stamping is the perfect way to highlight a stamped image. Especially, one you colored
- Sometimes it nice to keep the coloring quite simple! The Stampin’ Blends are just the right tool for easy coloring. Not all coloring has to be over the top to be beautiful!!! That’s a good thing! Most of us don’t have time for a lot of over the top “detail” coloring!! Life is busy, Right???
- Simple coloring pairs well with bold images like this one from Petal Palette
Set back stamping is easy to create! To learn more about the process click here. I love wood mount stamps. And this card was created using the wood mounted version of Petal Palette. The process was 1. I stamped the image where I wanted it on Whisper White. 2. Lay the Mint Macaroon layer over the stamped image. 3. Later my die cut in place over the two layers, using micropore tape to hold it in place. 4. The final step was to die cut the Mint Macaroon layer.
The black and Petal Pink were added to the card after everything else was in place!
