We also have a new month long guest designer; Amy Tsuruta. Welcome aboard, Amy!
Here is our first week’s inspiration:
Love the frame and love all those neutral colors!
I couldn’t make a frame as I was away from home and didn’t have my craft knife with me. However, I did have a similar pattern paper and some cool numbers washi tape.
I started this card by first choosing a sentiment; something I almost never do. I thought of my talented niece and decided to go with “Absolutely proud of you”. It is an interesting approach and I am glad I gave it a try, especially since it made designing a bit easier when my mind was a bit blank.
I also tried a new thing, which is stamping on fabric/ribbon. I am not sure what to call it, it is some kind of thick ribbon and it was a gift from my blog friend Wida.
Try as I may to design in a random scattered fashion, my cards always seem to end up looking calculated and a bit stiff! Well, I should just keep trying 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
