Bloomtangled and Grateful
A few weeks ago, I saw my name under a “winners” tab for the STAMPlorations May Blossoms card challenge which I had submitted one of my creations. I couldn’t believe it!
They generously gave me a choice of a floral stamp or die which a designer had used for a project. I love all kinds of stamps, but can be picky with my florals. I love trendy patterns that give me creative freedom (yet can still be foolproof!). After much debate, I chose the Bloomtangled Cover Plate Die, and it arrived in my craft closet soon after that! YAY happy mail!
Whoa! I may have been a bit intimidated and wasn’t quite sure where to start. When I was in the right mind-set (i.e. late at night, ha ha), I sat down with the die and ran it through with some scrap paper to get an idea of what I could create.
I first made a thank you card to send Shery, the owner/designer/illustrator of STAMPlorations. Next I realized I could use the negative of the “stencil” so I started making pairs of cards.
I’m so excited to continue using this die! Do you have a favorite? Which color scheme do you think I should create with next?
