Collage Card and Blog Hop!
Today’s project feature’s a collage card with a layout similar to previous projects:
I love using this layout when I want to use all (or most) of the pretty patterns from a pack of designer series paper and think it’s a great use of the Postage Stamp Punch 🙂
This card is definitely “busier” than what I usually do but I just couldn’t help myself! It might be a bit much for my customers but I know someone that will LOVE this crazy mix of colors and patterns and I will send this off to her tomorrow 🙂
This card uses the following supplies:
- Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, World of Dreams, Serene Silhouettes, Something to Say
- Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Rose Red
- Paper: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Rose Red, Gold Foil, Gold Glimmer, Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper
- Accessories: Gold Ribbon, Gold Twine, Elegant and Bitty Butterfly Punches, Bitty Banner Framelits, Postage Stamp Punch, Dimensionals, Itty Bitty Punch Pack
I was asked to participate in a Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop from a fellow friend, Susie Wood 🙂 You can check out her blog: Stamp with Susie at http://stampwithsusie.blogspot.com/2015/01/to-classic-card-and-keep-reading-about.html.
Part of this blog hop is to answer the following questions:
1. What are you working on?
I’m working on projects for my February workshops and classes and I’m behind! I want to use a lot of the products from the Occasions catalog along with the free Sale-a-bration items 🙂 There’s just too many choices and not enough hours in the day!
2. How does your work differ from others in your genre?
I’m not sure that my work differs at all but I think I tend to have a “clean and simple” style for the most part. I’m a stickler for cleanly stamped images and can’t handle crooked anything! I’m also not big on a ton of layers.
3. Why do you create what you do?
I mostly create what I do to provide my customers with ideas for their stamping supplies. I want them to USE what they purchase and see different ways to use the same stamp set. I also create because it makes me happy and I hope the projects make others happy too 🙂
4. How does your creativity process work?
Good question! Sometimes I’ll look back at past projects that I liked and redo them using current stamps and accessories (like today’s collage card!). Other times, I’ll browse Pinterest and Google for a specific stamp set or accessory. Some days the creating is easy and fun and other days I hit a “stamper’s block” and nothing is happening. Those days are tough but thankfully few and far between!
Next Monday- February 2, 2015- I’ve asked my demonstrator friends, Marian (long-time demonstrator and member of my team) and Pamela (lead volunteer to our local Ronald McDonald House) to join this blog hop so be sure to check out their blogs then 🙂
NOTE: I will also link these 2 blogs again next Monday on my blog- so that you don’t forget to check them out!
