"I think I’ve learned to be true to myself/yourself. Do the type of stamping/papercrafting that makes you happy. If you struggle with a certain style (i.e., clean and simple), then that’s probably not your style. If you don’t like making messes and struggle with tearing a piece of paper, then distress/shabby is probably not for you.
"Do what makes you happy! I’ve found that when I’m at my creative best, I’m happy with what I’m doing."
We love that advice, and I think you can see how Sherry's happiness translates into her projects! For this week's card, she used 11096MC Daisy Bouquets Clear Set, drawn by artist Vicki Schreiner:
This is the same clear set from last week but this time featuring the Daisy Teacup image (2893J in the wood mounted version). Take a look at the lovely card that Sherry created with it:
I love the stitching and patterned paper that is repeated on the inside:
Spellbinders™: E8-006 Classic Petal Edgeabilities, E8-003 Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities, S4-344 Tear Drop Circles, S4-114 Classic Circles LG, S4-116 Classic Circles SM, S4-138 Petite Ovals, S4-139 Petite Scalloped Ovals, Grand Calibur®
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger Archival Jet Black; Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink; Copic Markers
Edge of background paper (green) was die cut/embossed with Edgeabilities, scored and folded over the front. The yellow layer was die cut/embossed with the same Edgeabilities, cut an inch longer, and layered beneath the green layer. Background paper was sponged with Antique Linen and stitched to green layer.
