Do Something Creative Everyday

Today’s card highlights Stampin’ Up!’s Crafting Forever stamp set, which will be available in the new catalog June 1!

I first started with an idea in my head to stamp the pot of brushes and the sentiment in Basic Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. Once I did that, I felt like it needed a little something more, so I started to cut some 1/4″ strips of Basic Black cardstock and played around with their positioning. I decided to weave them together to frame the fabulous stamped images from Crafting Forever. Here’s  a closer look at the images in the set:

I think I might need to make some wall art for my house that says, “Crafting forever! Housework whenever.” LOL!

  1. Great job Julie, I’m a neutrals girl so this is definitely right down my alley. The weaving of the Basic Black strips of card adds a little extra texture and depth to your card. Great job
