This week at our Creative Corner, one of our brand new design team members, Holly Kean is our hostess. The fun challenge she has for us is called Stamp Happy and she wants us to stamp on our designer paper. I love the look and creativity of stamping on designer paper, but I never think to do it, so thanks to Holly for giving me a push in this direction!
This card is my very first piece ever made with a Wendy Vecchi/Studio 490 stamp. I finally broke down and ordered a couple of sets. I admire her work, but I'm not sure her style fits with my style very well. I've been alternating between liking this card and being very lukewarm about it. I'm still haven't made a final decision on that. I purchased two sets - Love to Make Art and Nature's Art, and this card combines stamps from both sets. What I really like is the text stamp (directly under the heart and also used it to make the second layer of the card) and the sentiments (I'm a big sentiment/quote fan).
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch
My DP started life as a book page. I used a technique I saw on Tim Holtz's blog to lift some of the print off the page.
