I like to keep a few handmade cards on hand. I haven't made any in a while and the last time I looked my supply was seriously depleted. It meant cleaning up the craft room and spreading out a bunch of ideas. Then I have to stand back and look.
I decided to do a couple of my medallion stamps.
In essence you stamp the same stamp many times. Then you cut out smaller and smaller sections and glue them together with spacers to give a nice 3D effect.
Next I stamped a few friendship notes and put them together.
I made one with no stamping and embossing.
I had a few flowers from stems I bought at Michael's. I stripped off the petals and saved them in a Ziploc bag. I cut a few stems and leaves from green cardstock.
I added some little things I have collected, cute little ribbons and flowers made out of ribbon. I love buying them and then I hate to use them. Too cute!
Now I can justify another trip to a craft store for more. Oh, Good!
