I'm still working on a swap with my friend, Ericka and I'm trying to catch up with posting my work. I rarely stamp "Just a Note" type cards. I know I've never mailed one to anybody, but part of our swap it to create this type of card.
It takes me a looooong time to come up with color combos that I really like. Plus, I'm trying to use paper from my huge collection that rarely makes it onto a card. This card was inspired by a design Kristina did in February. If you haven't seen it, here's her YouTube video.
Stamps (all Stampin' Up): Year-Round Cheer, Little Pieces
Paper: River Rock, Always Artichoke, designer paper (K & Company), & handmade cream-colored paper (unknown)
Ink: Alway Artichoke, Brilliance Pigment Ink (Galaxy Gold, Coffee Bean, Pearlescent Ivy)
Other: ribbon (Michael's), Zots, mounting tape, 1" circle punch
Note: I'm still trying to work on my lighting and photography, so you'll notice I'm playing around with my blog entries. The cardstock in this photo doesn't quite look like River Rock.
