It’s funny but until recently I never realized how much I was swayed by the trend tide. It’s hard not to get caught up in some things like the desire for beautiful papers, the need for the latest tool or the out right addiction to Copic markers! I started thing though about stamping and how I’ve not really blended my love of it with my other loves in my life. I don’t make resolutions so this isn’t really one, it’s more of a creative goal for me. I plan to stamp and create using the things that I am truly passionate about. Now what might those be you ask? Well, flowers, animals, trees, insects, hmm maybe I should just say Nature and all her splendid offerings! So to help me embrace my new goal, I’ve started by brightening up the old blog here. It’s quite fitting for me really; sunny, happy and oh so flowery!
Now I’ve also started by my first card of 2012!
Isn’t he awesome! My darling husband gave him to me for Christmas. I love all animals, but for some reason I’ve developed a really love affair with moose. This guy is from www.dragonflylaser.com I just stumbled upon him one day while checking out Moose stamps on Amazon and added him to my wish list. I used Copic E41, E43 for his antlers, E41, E43, E47 for his fur, E31 is the color inside his ear and I used C5 and C7 on his hooves. The sentiment is from an old TAC set and the card stock is DCVW and Bazzill for the base. Those balloons are actually brads, but I have no idea where they came from!
Oh, my other goal for this year, to post more often! So be on the look out for another card soon. I’ve just gotten this adorable tree stamp that I can’t wait to use and….I’ve finally started cutting out flowers with my Pazzles Inspiration!!!! This is going to be a great year!!!
Happy Creating, in whatever you do!!!!
