Seasonally Scattered Cards

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  See Colors In A Whole New Light!
I love seeing what other people create with Stampin' Up! stamps!  Colors that I pass right over suddenly attract my full attention when I see the used in unique combinations.  Doris shared these two cards with me during our recent visit and the second card just popped!  I love that color combo and I'm sure it will be inspiring my own creation in the near future!  Both of these cards use the Seasonally Scattered stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  Click HERE to shop now!

Kinda Eclectic Card Assortment

Today I wanted to share three gorgeous cards that my wonderful friend Doris showed me during our recent visit.  Each card uses the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in a unique way!  These cards incorporate original designs as well as layouts that Doris found on-line.  How can you use the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in a new way?

Bright & Beautiful and Festival of Trees Cards

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  The Same Materials In The Hands Of Different Makers Can Create Wonderful Results!
I am always amazed by how one single stamp set can be used by many different crafters to create cards and paper crafting projects that are incredibly varied!  During my visit with Doris I was able to see a huge variety of cards she had created!  Some of them were her own original designs and some were adaptations of cards she had seen on-line.  Stamp sets that hadn't even caught my eye in the catalog were brought to life by her creations!  Of course, my wish list grew and grew! :)  For a few days I'm going to share some of the cards she shared with me.  I hope they inspire you to use your sets in new ways...or maybe they will inspire you to look at a set that you had passed by and see it in a new way.  Enjoy!  The top card uses the Bright & Beautiful stamp set and the bottom card uses Festival of Trees. I love how there is always a beautiful surprise inside each of Doris' cards!
