My poor craft room has been in a disarray for a few weeks while my basement has been dug up to make way for an unexpected plumbing repair. So, I haven’t been stamping nearly as much as I would like this summer! Thank goodness for online events, or I wouldn’t have done much stamping at all.
This card was my take on a design from an all day craft “online” retreat I was on a few weeks ago. I have done a few of these events and they have been fun! For me, the good thing is, once I sign up for the retreat, I get a nice kit in the mail that was all ready to go. All I needed to do was find some ink and some stamps that would work and I was good to go!
This card was based on a masculine card design in the event’s kit. I just rearranged a few things and added my own embellishments to “customize” it for what I wanted to do. I simply can’t get enough of the In Good Taste suite of products with the textured, natural embellishments. They add so much interest and dimension to a card. This card uses some of the Faux Suede trim and pulls in a few of the copper color Star Design Elements. And all this this interest and dimension in the embellishments is perfect with a Tasteful Textile embossed background. It all comes together for a rich look and feel.
And I am happy to be putting my craft area back together again! Whew! What a mess. Stamping is so much more fun.
