Been a while since my last post (again) as life has been so busy. Nothing out of the ordinary just typical life of juggling family, work, school etc.....
I found a little time this week to do some crafting.At first I was a little lost with no real inspiration so I just stood there and stared at my craft stash wondering what I could create.
While I searched through my stamp collection I thought about how many sets there were that hadn't seen any ink in a long time. There were also quite a few that had never been inked AT ALL!
I decided to set myself a challenge to use each set and create five different cards from it before moving on to another set.
I closed my eyes and reached for the first set I would work with which turned out to be...
Bring On The Cake - Stampin' Up!
Just so happens that this is one of those sets that has never been used.
As much as this is a great sentiments set it wasn't bombarding me with inspiration so I decided I would google it and see what ideas I could get from there.
Finally, some inspiration from Heike's blog
where she had made a Lego card that I thought would be perfect for my son's birthday.
Here is my recreation of Heike's card.
I used assorted off cuts of Stampin' Up! cardstock and the small studs on the lego bricks were made using the 1/2" circle punch.
I coloured the sentiment with Copics.
In an effort to keep my craft space (which is very limited) in order I thought it might be a good idea to create a folder with all my stamps sets in it for easy reference .
So here starts the challenge to myself
Create 5 different cards with each of my stamps sets.
If you would like to join in this little challenge please add your blog to the link up in my side bar so that I can come visit you too.
Thank you for stopping by today.
