Hi there! The card I'm sharing today is definitely a little unusual for me. It's bold and bright (which I love) mixed in with a quirky design (which, sometimes works and sometimes doesn't). I'm still not sure how I feel about all the design elements together, but I love the color combo and the overall brightness of it, so I'm sharing it. 🙂 Not every card is a homerun, but I think they're still worth sharing with each other. If nothing else, it's worth it to say "Hey, look at this weird card I made!"
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper
Patterned paper: Doodlebug Designs
Stamps: Hampton Arts (medallion), Papertrey Ink (sentiment, small scalloped circle)
Scalloped circle die: Spellbinders Paper Arts
One of the reasons I do feel this card is worth sharing, is I finally got to incorporate a technique that I was always curious about – bending stamps to create a curved sentiment. I was always a bit timid about bending and molding my expensive photopolymer stamps, but this sentiment is very long and thin, so I knew it would be able to handle the task. I love the look it gives and with longer stamps, it's really easy to do.
Also, it may be hard to tell, but the yellow patterned paper actually has a raised, flocked design on it. Basically, it's fuzzy! How cool is that? It's from Doodlebug, so I suggest going out and getting some – it's one of my favorite papers.
Well, that's it for today. Do you have a crafting/stamping techniques you've been wanting to try for a while? I'm always up for a new experiment! Thanks so much for stopping by!
