One Sketch/Two Cards
In my monthly card classes, we make five cards each time. Usually, there are three designs, and we make two of two of the designs. Here’s one of the designs for classes this week.
Cute, right? I love the Fresh Fruit stamp set and the coordinating Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper (DSP). It’s so happy and bright. Plus, of course, I’m from a family of orchardists, so the fruit images hit home for me.
Cutting paper for 20+ of the same card can be a little challenging, though. Sometimes I don’t have enough of the same color card stock, or the same DSP design. So I decided to use the same sketch with a different DSP.
It’s interesting how using different colors and paper will give the card a whole different “feel.” I used the Blooms & Bliss DSP for the Sweet Sugarplum card. The sentiment is from the Fairy Celebration stamp set. I love the Fairy Celebration set. Those little fairies are so cute, and the font for the sentiments is beautiful.
We’re in the middle of several home repair projects at the Cooper house, so my stamp room is my refuge. Basically, every room on the upper level is in disarray because of the various projects. It’s going to be wonderful when it’s finished, but in the meantime – chaos. I don’t do well in chaos, so I’ve been hanging out in my creative spot as much as possible! Fortunately, Amelia loves it down there. There’s so much to see and do. She loves looking through my craft supplies.
Funny story – and I wish I had a video. One of the floor lamps from the family room is missing its shade. I think it was so Mike would have more light to paint. Or something. Anyway, the light bulbs (which, I have been told, are technically “lamps”) look a little like microphones. So Miss Amelia grabs the floor lamp and sings into the light bulb. Sometimes it’s the A-B-C song or Old McDonald, but her favorite lately is Let it Go from Frozen. It was playing when we were shopping one day, and she’s been singing it ever since. So cute!! So I’m not sure if she’ll be a musician or an artist. Or a dancer. Or…Well, she’s only two (in two weeks!), so there’s lots of time to figure it out.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
