Sunday Stamping With Nancy McClelland: Soup Time

"There are so many things to do with this set, but I decided to use the colander with veggies." Nancy McClelland's comment refers to 11146MC Soup Time Clear Set (drawn by artist Nancy Baier):

Using these stamps, she cooked up a charming card that is perfect for sending any day of the year:

"My love is card making and coloring with my Copic Markers," explains Nancy. " I have an Intermediate Copic Certification. [For this card,] I got to use many colors and just have fun."

If you take a closer peek at the image, you can see her pretty results:

Nancy's recipe includes markers G12, YG03, G46, YR04, YR07, E55, R14, R17, R24, Y15, Y19, YR31(1/2), C1, C3, E50, E41, E42, E43, E44, E21, E31, and E55.

After die cutting the image into an oval and layering onto a slightly larger dark teal oval, she placed it onto a gathered ribbon base for a lovely accent.

The sentiment was die cut into a tag shape with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio Two, and the brads, clip, and bow make it stand out so beautifully:

When stamping your own projects, suggests Nancy, "don’t ever compare yourself to anyone else. You should have your own style, and don’t be afraid to show it. Try something new!"

"There are many helpful aids to show you color combos and sketches to help you get a jump start. The Internet and YouTube has changed everything. Don’t steal/lift someone's work, but ask permission to use something that you liked. Most designers are delighted that you praised them and appreciate their work."

Would you like to cook up a similar card, Inky friends? Please help me in thanking Nancy for being our wonderful Inky Guest Designer this month. By leaving your comment, you'll also be entered in a BLOG CANDY giveaway.
