When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
Hello everyone! I haven’t posted in a few weeks, still getting used to some new medications but feeling a lot less tired now. I am absolutely thrilled to tell you that Kim Hughes from Paper Smooches invited me to be the guest designer for August. I didn’t want to say anything until the first card was posted.
Paper Smooches is one of my favorite stamp companies. Kim’s style is clean and whimsical. The August release includes all sorts of writing implements and things like a typewriter, a darling desk light, an inkwell, and a feather pen, to name a few. It’s a great set for back to school and for welcoming or saying goodbye to team members at work.
I’ll be making a card each week for the entire month of August. Here’s the first one that I created:
This card uses the feather, inkwell and Just a Note stamps combined with the die-cut rolled piece of paper. I love the way Kim’s die cuts often cut a border for the die cut. I cut it twice, once from black card stock and once from white, and combined the black border with the white inner pieces.
I stamped and masked the feathers in the corner. This was colored with Copic Markers and sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
