How I create and a Card...

Do you find yourself digging in that big bin of $1 stamps at Michaels?  I am always checking them out for some good sentiments, words etc.  I found the one below a few months ago and just love the 2 different fonts on it.  When creating cards I usually have 2 small 5x7 shallow baskets on my desk.  I will grab some sentiment stamps wood and clear, ink and a clear block and put it in one basket while the other will have a mix of embellishments, ribbons etc.  I like having a few small baskets on my desk that hold all the bits I am working with so they are at my finger tips.  I hate having to hunt for things when I'm creating.  Having things gathered up this way sure makes creating easier and neater for me.

With that said here is a card I created with some left over Prima flowers and that awesome $1 sentiment stamp from Michaels...

Products used:
Graphic45 Pattern Paper
Kraft Cardstock
Prima Flowers
StudioG Stamp (Michaels)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Walnut Stain)
Pop Dots

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.  It really does mean a lot.  I will be back tomorrow with another project. Till then... Happy Crafting.

Pin It!
