I have a very exciting announcement today: Registration is now open for our next Creative Challenge!

The Challenge is FREE and you’ll have tons of opportunities to win prizes. Although I call it a challenge, it’s actually not much of a challenge. LOL. It’s simple, easy things you’ll do every day to get you in the crafting mood. I also have some small tasks that will help keep you creating after the challenge is over.

Today’s Card

Today’s card is featured in my graphic for the Creative Challenge. It uses some new products in the Occasions catalog. I don’t know what I like more, the paper or the stamp. But, it doesn’t matter. LOL. Both are fun to use and make my stamping even enjoyable and fun.

The card uses the new stamp set, Builder Birdcage. It’s an interesting stamp set because it can be used in different types of stamping. You can make an incredibly elegant card with it, a cutesy card, or anything in between. You’ll see lots of different uses on my blog since I love the stamp set so much. It’ll get a ton of ink from my stamp room!

Tips and Tricks

The birdcages are stamped in Archival Gray ink. This is a little subtler than black and pairs nicely with the soft colors in the card.

I’m not a perfect cutter! After cutting out the bird cages, any areas that I missed which showed white I dipped into the Gray ink pad and filled in with Gray. This is totally not scientific and I didn’t use any tools. LOL. I just brushed the edges in the ink. Worked great and the bird cages look crisp over the purple paper.
The Succulent Garden paper marries nicely with this stamp set. The sample in the catalog also uses this paper with the stamp set.

I hope you join my Creative Challenge. It will be a ton of fun. There are lots of prizes and the Challenge is free! Come join me. Click here to learn more.
