As I have previously written, I haven't been doing much in the way of crafting or card making lately. I have been out and about enjoying summer and spending time with family and friends. I had to make an exception to my break when I was asked by a partner at the firm I work for if I could make a special card for him to give his wife for their anniversary. He had never asked me before (normally, I make them for assistants and a few other staff members), so I said yes. The only guidance he gave me is his wife loves color and flowers, so this is what I came up with.
Stamps: Hero Arts, Paper Smooches, Gina K Designs
Paper: Gina K Designs
Ink: Archival Inks, Memento Black
Misc: Copic Markers, Gems
Here is another example of one card using three stamp sets by different companies. It is a fun way to get the most of the many supplies I have and give the sets a different look.
It felt so good to get my fingers inky! Hoping to just find time to create for myself soon. I know I have relatives coming next week and a block party to attend next weekend as well so I am not sure when I will fit it in. Summer is really in full swing here!
If it is summertime in your area, I hope you are having a lot of fun and family/friend time, too!
Until next time!
