Thank you all for your guesses in the matching game and for welcoming the three new designers with open arms. I am so very excited to see their first official design team projects soon and getting the opportunity to work with them over the next few months.
It’s time to announce the winner of the $50 gift certificate from that post. Those who guessed correctly were put into a raffle and I randomly selected one winner. Congratulations to Francesca in Italy on being the winner this time!
Today I’m using one of my current favorites- the Falling Rain cling stamp from Simon Says Stamp. I’m telling you, this stamp is so fun and versatile.
I wanted to create a card that was different than the others I made, so I did some color blocking- a technique I haven’t done in quite a while. I cut strips of cardstocks using a color palette I’ve been loving, adhered them to a white card base and then stamped the rain image using Versmark ink. While the ink was still wet, I sprinkled some clear embossing powder on and used a heat gun and then it was time to dress up this piece. I was pleasantly surprised to see the circles from the Stitched Duo 2 fits the hello there sentiment from the Circle Sayings set. A Stitched die + this darling sentiment= a perfect matching!
If you’re a long-time reader, you’ll probably notice I go through phases of crafting. Whether it be using specific colors, sets, or dies, if I like something, I’ll use it a whole bunch. (You have to make it worth the purchase, right?!) My current go-to favorites: the Falling Rain stamp and the scallop from the Stitched Borders 1 set. LOVE!
That’s going to wrap up today’s post. I’ll be back tomorrow with info on a special feature and some other news. See you then!
