Know What I Love

Know What I love

Know what I love?  Besides stamping?  I love my life, I love my PALS, I love the fact that I love…LOL.  With that said, Know what I love?  I love that I belong to a Design Team that uplifts our creativity and pushes me to never stop learning my craft.


  • Stamping without color. No one ever said stamping had to have color and a simple outline with one color image is all that’s needed.  I’m a simple stamper and although I enjoy coloring, some images just look nice without it.  Do you have a preference?
  • Banner shape with circular edges.  To make th banner across the stamped circle I adhered the stamped banner on top of the image and ran it through the Big Shot at the same time with the circular framelits.  It’ll cut two pieces of cardstock without a hitch.  Have you ever tried it?

Pals Paper Arts #131 Sketch Challenge

One of the reasons I participate in sketch challenges is to improve my skills.  I have never been an artist, sort of speak, when it comes to coloring and drawing… so I took the opportunity to practice with this cute bird from the Language of Friendship stamp set.  I discovered that I really need to practice my blending skills.  The perfect place to practice was with the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge #131.  Challenges are an excellant opportunity to practice.  When you participate let me know and I’ll be on the lookout.

Mata-’bout Tip:  Hold on to scraps of paper you have left over after a project.  They come in handy on other projects.  This card had a little too much open space for me, so I took some small scraps I had leftover from a previous project and used them to punch out cute tiny blossoms.  They added an extra dimension and color to the Chocolate Chip paper.
