- Stumble in my studio, cup of coffee in hand
- Turn on the lights and see last night’s craft-astrophe that the craft fairies neglected to clean up overnight.
- Push everything to the corner of my desk, with a “I’ll deal with that later” grumble.
- See a blank white heart. Grab the rooster stamp from Home to Roost and stamp in in Real Red, and think…Now what am I going to do with that?
- Frame it with the stitched scallop heart? To plain. Sponge inner heart with Real Red? Better.
- Layers? The heart is pretty big, but just putting it on a plain layer is to boring. Backgrounds stamps? Too busy. Designer Series Paper? Takes away from the monochrome look. Dig through all my framelits – a ha! Eclectic Layers…let’s try that. Hey…that sort of works!
- Stamp a sentiment and adhere layers. Not bad at all! Thinking Outside the Stamp Set or Bundle creates a whole new look and feel
While the process seems a bit messy, this really is a good example of #SimpleStamping. I’m absolutely certain that someone out there really needs to send/receive a card, with a red rooster in a heart, with an “Missing you” sentiment, right?
