So Kind

This is a detailed peek at one of the Stamp-A-Stack cards: Thank You card. I love the versatility of the Priceless stamp set, with all of its individual images (heart, flower, butterfly, etc). Plus the swirls are so fun! I used Beate Johns’ Weekend Sketch Challenge #32 for the layout of the card…love her sketch challenges! I swapped sides though from her sketch once I stamped my swirl and butterflies and realized that there was an empty space on the left side instead of the right. I think it still counts in following the sketch!

I probably could have added a lot more bling, pizzazz, etc. to this card, but I was trying to keep it a little simpler since it was for a Stamp-A-Stack. Although, I am guessing this is the one that gets complained about due to the cutting out of the butterflies…there is always one card every year that gets some grumbling because of the time consuming aspect of it…I just tell them to suck it up for the beauty of the card! Hehe! The swirl and butterflies were stamped in Sahara Sand and then the butterflies were stamped in the three colors and the wings were cut out and popped up. I really like how that part turned out. Then to keep it simple, I just stamped the little flower in the background and added the “So Kind” greeting. Hopefully it won’t be too bad. I have a hard time judging how long a card will take to make because I am designing it at the same time as making it, so it naturally takes longer!

Andrea,
Just thought I'd let you know I was looking for inspiration last night in the Priceless Gallery at SCS and found this card - your also on my blogroll. I cased the image. I'm also a crafty girl that works as an engineer by day.

Here is a link to my blog.
