I'm back today with a "Back to Basics" card. I spend so much time researching the new and fun trends in card making and scrapbooking, that today, when I wanted to make a card I felt bogged down. Does that ever happen to you?
I find when I feel like this it is better to go back to pure stamping. So I went to my craft room and looked at my stamp sets and pulled out "Field Flowers" and "Fall Foliage". I haven't used these in awhile so off we go.
Here is the pic:
You won't find anything fancy here folks! I stamped around the outside of the card with Pretty in Pink and matted the focal image with Very Vanilla and Brushed Gold. I random stamped the splotch image from Fall Foliage in Crumb Cake and I stamped off first because I wanted a very light look to the background. I roughed up the outside with my scissors and tore and folded the edges for a worn look. I stamped the flowers in Melon Mambo and the stem in Pear Pizzazz. I also stamped the greeting with Soft Suede.
I stamped out the flowers on scrap paper and cut them out and popped them up with dimensionals. I added some sparkle with Dazzling Details. Not quite a 10 min card but close.
I found the stamping and cutting very relaxing. So no bells and whistles here but lots of Stamping Goodness.
