a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

Saturday, July 16, 2011


I hope you won't get sick of me sharing multiple creations this month.  I have been busy creating but just not enough days in the month to post all I want to share.  I can't even tell you how many I have set aside as they were rejects from pub calls that I haven't even posted yet.

This collection is one I made with the fun Swirl4Words set from The{Stamps}of Life.  I love these colors together, really, I love Kraft with any color these days.  Just another great neutral go-to color.  You can't tell too well from the picture below but I used my versamark to stamp the small little flower as background.  I used the Creations2Fill set to make my petals on the flower stem.

Card details:
Cardstock: Kraft Like a Rockstar, Maroon Maven, A Blanc Check
Inks: Versamark, Perfect Little Black Dress, Maroon Maven, Emerald Green
This card I wanted to create a background with the stamp instead of creating something with a focal image, even though the first one I stamped was dead center on the card.  I stamped the flowers randomly and then added some brads to the centers of them.
Card details:
Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, Barely Banana, A Blanc Check
Inks: Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, So Saffron
Embellishments: Brads from designer mix

This last card was one of the first I made with this set as I thought it would look fun popped out.  I handcut it so it's definitely got a "rough" edge to it but thought the idea was a good one.  (Patting myself on the back)

Card details:
Cardstock: Mauved by the Paparazzi, Confetti Cream, Baja Breeze, Echo Park Life is Good
Inks: Baja Breeze, Mauved by the Paparazzi, Dish All the Dirt Brown
