Ok, stalking continues :)
I don’t have many stamps. Just a handful. And looking around at challenge blogs and other blogs on my Google Reader makes me feel wanting. My cards are simple – almost plain. Busy cards don’t make happy – but that doesn’t stop me from feeling “oh I can never make something like that”
That’s when Simplicity helps. Susan’s cards and her insights are always ALWAYS a big source of inspiration. I look around her blog and find that simple is good. I don’t have to have a lot many things happening for my card to be nice : ) Ok, let me say that again. Ahem.
Today’s inspiration is Simplicity and Tejal. Tejal is so taken with butterflies – I find that very sweet. She is very giving, warm and encouraging. So, today I searched Simplicity on Google Feed for butterflies.
This Stampabilities dots background is the only background stamp I have – so it was the obvious choice :) See fewer supplies means lesser time to decide <grin/>
Stamped this in the middle with clear embossing and then embossed over the stove’s flame. Rubbed ink all over.
This green one has the dots stamped with some left over ink in the stamp which I forgot to wipe and clear embossing ink – then clear embossed. Butterflies diecut is from itsybitsy.
The banner is due to smudged-ink. And the stamp is my, yes you are right, Hero Arts Everyday Saying :)
I wish I had something interesting to day about the colours like Susan does – but since I have nothing to say – let me stop my rather rambling post now! :)))
Entering for these challenges
