I have been away from my craft cubbie for about 2-1/2 weeks. When we got home I was ready to get back to stamping. I was looking forward to playing with some new products from the J-J 2022 Mini Catalog and the J-F 2022 Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
It was harder than I thought it would be. I recycled a lot of starts, questioned myself whether something was good or not, and when I look at what I made I am still not sure. It is a strange feeling. I still enjoyed the process and know that I need to flex that creativity muscle and use it and it will get stronger.
Thank goodness the January Stamping Inkspirations blog hop is a Sketch Challenge. It made it much easier to create the project.
I used the bright and happy Sunshine & Rainbows 6" x 6" DSP. This pack of paper is one of the Sale-A-Bration choices which means it is Free with a $50 purchase. I used 3 different designs and you know I like stripes and polka dots!
The adorable cupcakes are from the Measure of Love set. Love the little cupcakes, each decorated with a little flower and pearl.
I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the DSP. The squares were cut using a retired die set, Stitched Shapes. I know I am not alone in wishing that the Stitched Shapes would come out of retirement and re-appear in the Stampin' Up! catalog.
The ric-rac shape on both the outside and inside of the card was created using the Basic Borders dies. This is a fun way to dress up the inside of the card and use the little strips of DSP. The Sunshine and Rainbow paper is too cute and I don't want to waste any of it.
Thank you for stopping by! Now it is time to head on over to see what the talented Danielle Kassing has created for you!
Here is a list of all the stops on the Stamping Inkspirations January blog hop!
