My second card didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. It was a fussy, vintage card, and Charlotte's sample was beautiful. Mine suffered from inexpertly applied 2-way glue and an attempt to compensate with too much glitter, which meant it didn't photograph well at all. Probably just as well.
I hadn't realized until I decided to do this how difficult it is to photograph these cards. The detail just doesn't come through very well in the photo. I actually did these with the camera, and not with my phone, and I still took multiple shots, of which these are the best. The difficulty may be in my technique, of course. My photography has never been my most expert hobby.
DSP makes putting a card together so easy. Add a little ribbon and some kind of focal point, and you have a card. It can be as simple or as elaborate as you like.
I really need to get back into stamping again. It is always a lot of fun to meet with other ladies and create something fun and attractive.
And when I got home, guess what??? A Stampin' Addicts blog hop using some great new products from the Holiday mini. Tonight was Stamping Heaven!
Charlotte had a ton of samples on her kitchen counter when we arrived. At snack time, I took a moment to take some photos of them. Great ideas for my next stamping adventure. (These were photographed with my phone off her kitchen counter, but they do show the main elements of the cards.)
|Love the daisy embossing!|
|Maybe just a little monochromatic, but cute!|
|I'm sure I have a stamp like this around somewhere. Love the oval punch!|
|Love the flowers. Pink and green is always classy!|
|More DSP! An idea I will use, I think!|
|This one was truly wonderful in person. The photo doesn't do it justice at all.|
|Funny how 3 little images can really make a card!.|
And these cards were paper pieced. Too fun! Check out Bob the Builder and the guitar! Who thinks of these things???
