Sometimes a card comes together very easily. Sometimes it is a real struggle. Even though I was using one of my favourite colour combinations for this card and the stamping was quick, it took a really long time to create. I had a vision in my head that I just could not get to translate to the actual paper. Do you ever have stamping days like that?
I kept moving things around and changing the accessories until I got to this card. I don’t think this card will ever be an all-time favourite card but it’s okay.
I buy one stamp set a month just for fun. A stamp set that I don’t plan to use for a class or workshop or for a specific project. A stamp set that is just for me. And this month I bought this stamp set, Printed Petals. I have seen so many beautiful samples made with this card that I couldn’t wait to use it.
Since this card is not the my best example of this set, I guess I’ll need to keep stamping. And that is what I love about rubber stamping, it is quick and easy. I have not invested days, weeks or months into my cards. Only minutes so it feels good to try again and succeed. Stay tuned for another sample soon!
