Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Creating Is Good For The Soul
I have spent most of the day on the couch, watching my cat's every move - trying to make sure she is okay and recovering comfortably. I finally got a bit of a reprieve and was able to head into the craft room for a few minutes to make a quick card. As always, I found that creating was good for my soul. Whether it's a few minutes or a whole day, a little creativity is a wonderful way to nourish your soul and calm your worries! What can you create today?
This card was made with some scraps from my movers & shapers die. I often use the die to cut out curly labels since they are a touch bigger than the curly label punch and, therefore, create a great layer. However, I also save the "scraps" - I knew they would come in handy :) I stamped the image from Pocket Silhouettes using my Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz markers onto Very Vanilla card stock and then popped the "scrap" on top of it. Behind that I used a scrap from yesterday's card - a crumpled piece of Sahara Sand card stock that was inked with some Sahara Sand using the direct to paper technique. The greeting from Upsy Daisy was stamped using my Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz markers and adhered to a piece of Concord Crush card stock. Finally, a small clip with some Old Olive satin ribbon was added. I hope you like it! If you are loving the new In Colors as much as I am and need to have them, feel free to shop HERE now! :)
