Hello Again

Hello.  With the remodel almost finished, I’m finally getting a chance to get back to my blog. My card was inspired by this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge CCMC301. Everything about this card was accidental – most of the stamped pieces where ones I had lying around on the desk and the framelit pieces originally were cut too big so I had to “recut” them, which gave me the wonderful window effect. I love when creativity “just happens”.  Here’s how the card came together:

  • Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, and Smokey Slate combine for a fresh spring feel.
  • You can never go wrong with layered flowers popped up with a dimensional.
  • A gray candy dot accents the flower center.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy, and happy stamping!

I’d like to share with you a card created by a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator – Carol Bergstrom.  Carol creates hundreds of cards for Kaiser Permanente patients.  While her inspirations come from fellow demonstrators and websites, her style is unique and her cards are creative and cute.

This card features Stampin’ Up’s Flower Shop stamp set and coordinating punch.  I love how she used the flower stamp as both a background on the green panel and as a focal point on the white panel.

Carol does not have a blog; however, feel free to leave her a comment here.

Enjoy, and happy stamping!
