Do you ever buy a stamp set because you like just one stamp? Well that is that way I felt about A Dozen Thoughts. I have seen some really cute cards using the Just Because stamp. I finally purchased it and now I see a lot of potential in the rest of the set.
This is a "case" from Chris Kolly, I like the clean lines she has on a lot of her cards. But there is a story here. This is the card Chris made and I was going to use it for one of my Stamp a Stack class last week.I used the Petite Petals in a card I made at the library on Tuesday and I was prepping for my class on Wednesday night and could not find this stamp set. I looked high and low for it and was so frustrated. So I decided to use the punch only and use Regarding Dahlias for the center and punched it out with Itty Bitty Shapes flower punch (my favorite which is on the weekly deal this week :). So I finished prepping and packed up my bag and went to bed.
Next morning I was packing the car and guess what my stamp sets and my pearls had fallen underneath the front seat. UGGGG, how frustrating. I took them into class just in case they wanted to use them and they decided they liked the solid punched flowers along with the rhinestones that I had substituted. So it was all good but so frustrating. Here is my finished product. Thank you Chris, for your inspiration.
On another note that splatter on the right was to cover a mark I had made but the girls did the same thing because they liked the look.
It is all good, in the end my customers saw two ways to make it their own and I made it work when in a pinch.
This card was one of the cards we made in my Stamp a Stack card class. I offer this class the first Thursday of the month at Rock Ridge Clubhouse. At this class you make 10 cards using 2 designs (5 each) for $21.00.
The class starts at 10am. If you are interested in taking this class be sure to let me know in advance so I can prepare for you.
Have a great week! Blessings!
