I’m so glad to finally have some time to craft (and blog)!
Tonight I decided to do some challenges. I need birthday cards, so I started with a sketch challenge, the one over at Card Positioning Systems. Their sketch this week looked like fun. I wanted to step outside my box and not reach for the same old favorite colors, so I also decided to pick a cardstock I don’t use often and find a color combination to make it work. The color I picked was SU’s Blushing Bride, which is the least used color in this year’s In Color family. I found a color combination that paired it with Perfect Plum and Sahara Sand, also two colors I don’t reach for often, making it a great “out of my box” combo. I love Perfect Plum. I’m not sure why I don’t use it more often.
The other thing I used tonight for the first time is my new Stamping Bella Imeldabella. I had a chance last week to visit the Stamping Bella store and picked up a number of new stamps. Imeldabella caught my eye, so home she came.
