Today I thought I would participate in the Stamping 411 sketch challenge.
Do you find that inspiration comes from the many different places? I do! One of the design team cards got me thinking about the Newsprint dsp which I like very much, but had not used in quite a while. So I settled on using that paper and a color scheme of very vanilla, basic black, and a little bit of real red. Then I sat back and thought about what stamp set I would like to use. All of my stamp sets are stacked in a bookcase that I got at Ikea so usually the ones on top are the only ones I see. But today, one of my stacks was out out alignment so there was one stamp set peeking out from the bottom. That one was Greenhouse Garden. As one of my co-workers likes to say: "light dawns on marble head" and I was off!
I went WAY into the vault on this one and found some red embossing powder that Stampin' Up! used to sell about a million years ago. Actually it wasn't a million years ago. I checked. The last catalog I see it in is the 2006/2007 one. But that's still a long time ago! It shows up really nicely on the basic black cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
