Ooops I did it again ... I can't help myself . So yesterday the infamous Mr Brown, whom we in Stamping 'Up! all adore (the courier), brought my new stash. And in among various necessities, you know BARE ESSENTIALS for survival, were my new sponges. Well I had to get using them right away I love sponging and giving a distressed inky blend to my cards. I think it adds an air of vintage which is a style I just adore.
Here I used my latest favourite Rich Razzleberry. When I add anew ink to my collection I seem to use it on every project ...until I find my next favourite. Yes Im fickle but us crafters we get something new and its like a new baby, then like a magpie our eyes are soon caught by the next thing. It really is an obsession only a crafter would understand.
So back to Rich Razzleberry... I used the ink and the card stock and paired simply with Very Vanilla. My stamp is from Falling flowers and this flourish is just divine. The sentiment is from birthday blooms and I do go back to this sentiment frequently. My decorative side die cut is from Botanical builder thinlits. I don't normally use a large combination of products on a card. I like to show how you don't need HUUUUUGe amounts to create. But I also like to show how sets can work together and how you can use them time and time again ensuring we are getting value for money.
After all my job is more than Demonstrating to sell . I consider it my job to continue to provide inspiration for products you may already have. Well thats my excuse for my prolific crafting ...its a public service. What a great cop out for being a craft a holic . Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is great fun and I get to hide my obsession in plain sight.
This project is blog exclusive as several projects a week will be ... Well I gotta encourage you to keep watching some how right?. I will leave measurements below and if you wish to purchase any of the items I use my shop link is to the right >>>>>>
