What's This? More Cards?
Hi all! Well, I am beginning to think that the Clean and Simple Card Making class has helped me a bit to get out of my rut. I have actually been thinking about new ways with old stamps. I've also been thinking about how nice it would be to get some new stamps ;)
So, the class is up to day 9 but I started late, so I am going to share there (count 'em, three!) cards today from earlier days.
This card is based on one of the sketches from day 1 and it is also a day 7 card since it is au naturel. I had some leftover October Afternoon Boarding Pass paper from a mini album that I thought would be fun to add a geographic element that compliments the sentiment. Since I have a degree in geography, I have a great affinity for maps. I think I'll add this one to the Moxie Fab World The Map to Your Heart challenge, too.
This is also a day 1 card sketch. I got some Lawn Fawn stamps at Christmas and I fell in love with the little glass of milk and cookies. I just wanted to make a card with them. Sometimes it is nice to make a card for a frivolous reason!
The final card for today is from day 2: plain flat cards (or one-layer cards). I do love one-layer cards but sometimes there are little hurdles, like coloring. So for this one, I took some advice from Kristina's day 1 card and tried for a monochromatic color scheme. As you can see, I backed out of the color scheme but not drastically. The pink felt I had didn't look quite right but the red pops. I was inspired by this card that I saw on Pinterest last night.
It has been fun getting back into stamping these last couple of days. I don't know how much I can do with all of the class ideas but I am glad to just have some inspiration and reminder of what I like about stamping. I hope to have more to share soon! Thanks for checking in today :)
