Today I want to share one of a stack of sweet handmade cards using the latest Color Inspiration on Stamping Family. Every week, we have a new Color Inspiration made up of three current Stampin' Up! colors designed to inspire you and help you get your creative heart pitter pattering. Let's look at the Color Inspiration (this is what it looks like on Stamping Family):
So to SUPER challenge myself I literally closed my eyes and put my hand on a stamp set. When I saw what I had chosen I thought to myself “Oh, nice move – this will never work.” But guess what? It did! Check it out!
I know, right? SO CUTE! Here's a closeup:
Doesn't it look like it's just zooming along waiting to tell someone how sweet they truly are? I made a whole bunch of these sweet handmade cards to have available for when I just want to tell someone that I am thinking about them and that they are sweeties! So I posted it over in Stamping Family and I got some really lovely feedback. And that made me feel brave enough to share it here!
Part of the fun over on Stamping Family IS that we all get to share the results of what happens when we get out of our comfort zones. Someone posted a project one time making fun of herself about how something turned out when she tried a sketch and honestly we all went NUTS over it! Sometimes you really need that other point of view to make you see your creations in a new light and I love love love that it happens all the time on Stamping Family!
Here's what I used to make these sweet handmade cards:
Notice that the price for the Tasty Trucks set is “$0.00” and that's NOT a misprint! This set of SIXTEEN photopolymer stamps is F-R-E-E through Sale-A-Bration. There are some additional SUPER cute ice cream themed items on pages 32 and 33 of the Occasions Catalog so it would be ridiculously easy to put together $50 of merchandise and get the Tasty Trucks for free and then you would have more sweet handmade cards than you might know what to do with! But I have faith in you – I am sure you can find enough sweeties to send them to!
And think, if you were a Stamping Family member you could load your own creations to your own gallery, show off all YOUR sweet handmade cards and let all the other members tell you how awesome you are – the only thing missing from Stamping Family is YOU!
