Wild One



I am feeling so good...I feel like I've found my stamping style! For so long I've not been sure of what my "style" is exactly, or how I would describe it. The last couple days I've been in a really good groove and making cards left and right! Today I made 3 cards...for Jeff's Birthday, Valentine's and our Anniversary. I am really happy with how they all turned out.

So you wonder what my style is? Well, I think it is twofold...simple and classic...and layered and embellished (I guess that's what I'd call it). I've been so inspired lately by Kendra aka scrapstampindiva at SCS. I love her work!!! What a talented gal she is! Anywho...I was looking at her cards a couple days ago and was inspired to create some cards ala Kendra. Let me tell you, I an so happy with how they turned out! It spurend a whole card making spree!

This particular card was done using a sketch challenge over at SCS, SC162. This is a really fun sketch! I pulled out my Basic Grey patterned paper pad and used a couple of the pieces to layer with. The Basic Grey matched wonderfully with Wild Wasabi...which I've been itching to try out. I really like that color. I don't knwo why it takes me so long to get the new colors sometimes. Can you believe the Wild Wasabi is the only ink I have in the new In Colors? Amazing...

This is absolutely divine! You have totally found your style and I'm loving it. Those elephants are divine lined up like that. I'm so glad I have that set. Now I might use it for the first time! :0) And too funny that Wasabi is the only colour you have: it's the only one I DON'T have, lol :0) Mel
