Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Copper Embossed Birthday Card : Affectionately Yours with Timeless Textures.
I copper embossed this piece of card a while ago but hadn’t decided what else I wanted to do with it so put it to one side, I have a box I put all my ‘for another day’ bits and pieces in and any spare punch outs and when I am looking for inspiration I have a mooch through it to see if it gives me any ideas.
This is exactly what I did a few days ago and this piece stood out to me, I looked through my papers and thought the Crumb Cake and Copper DSP from my Affectionately Yours pack would set it off brilliantly.
I had been crafting with Real Red card and there was still some on the table when I put my paper on there, and that is how I decided on the colour for the card base, stamping and twine. I think what I am trying to show is that if you need inspiration you can get it just by looking through your stash of papers, card or half finished projects and hopefully like me with this card the ideas will start to form.
I really like how this has turned out, I used a few more stamps from the Timeless Textures stamp set to finish of my embossed piece and stamped my sentiment using the Water color wishes stamps but any sentiment would be suitable. While I was adding my twine I realised I liked my layer offset better than straight which is what I had intended to do. It needed a few finishing touches so I added my butterflies using Crumb Cake card stamped with Real Red ink and added some pearls.
Thursday will be quick card Thursday as usual, but for November Thursdays will be for a different project but more about that next week.
