I have been a bad, bad blogger this week. I am so sorry that I haven't brought you new artwork to see! I truly have been crafting, but all of that will be revealed during a big National Scrapbooking Day special for April and May. This morning, I put everything aside, made a mocha latte, and decided just to look through a few challenges. I found a sketch at Clean and Simple that I just loved. I took the sketch very literally, and I had a great time!
I have been hoarding some of the discontinued textured cardstock that CTMH carried for some time. I am really working on using up what supplies I have, and it's felt very good! So I made a card base with textured chocolate cardstock and ran it through the cuttlebug with my swiss dots folder. Because of the beautiful white core in CTMH paper, I lightly sanded the raised dots to get this print. I cut four 3/4" strips of paper and used my corner rounder to make scallops. That is a quick and easy technique - have you tried it? It's as simple as taking the guard off of your little green corner rounder! I always have extra die cuts in a bin, so I pulled out some matching flowers and a banner to finish this card off.
That was so much fun, that I am going back to make some more cards! If you are interested in my April Classes, I have those posted along with Summer Club details on my "Classes" tab. I'll make a formal announcement in the next few days, but feel free to contact me if anything interests you!
