Every once in a while I take out this set of stamps and stamp and color them. Especially if I don’t have a card design in mind. This past weekend was really difficult for me. It seemed like all I wanted to do was organize my craft space instead of create. And I’m sure I was missing my Dad. It’s been 11 years since he passed away, but it’s still so hard.
So, I got out my trusty unicorns and colored away Friday night. And then they sat there until Sunday, when I finally, sorta had a plan. Originally I had a heart I cut out of MFT’s All Over Roses paper, and I die cut some MFT Scribbles Roses, but it wouldn’t come together. So I kept die cutting shapes lol. I ended up with a heart in my favorite Blue Raspberry (Gina K. Designs). I layered the heart on Neeah Solar White, added the unicorn and then a spunky sentiment from Simon Says Stamps’ CZ Designs Simple Sentiments. Lucy’s Cards jewels finished it off!
While fighting with…I mean working on this card, I came across a panel of paper I watercolored with Distress Ink using the smooshing technique. I’ve used theses panels with the unicorns before, so I grabbed a matching unicorn. Then I used my new MFT Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips and stamped one of the Sentiments that accompany the unicorns. I scored it so that I could get it to pop up, and put some foam tape in the middle. I also used fun foam to pop up the unicorn (I did this on the first card too). I added a couple of Lucy’s Cards jewels to the sentiment strip.
What are your go to stamps for when you are stumped, or need cheering up?
