Hello, Friends! Yes, I'm actually posting for the third time in one week. I know I was MIA for a while, but I actually needed a break from crafting! It's been a tedious process, but it's a lot to go through -- probably ten years' worth of stuff! I've sold and donated a bunch of supplies. But, I have also BOUGHT some new stuff, too!
I guess it boiled down to "out with the old, and in with the new" as they say! It was just time for some of my stuff to move on to a home where they would be put to use or appreciated. It was also time for me to get some fresh, new stuff and to also look into expanding on what I do creatively. I like trying new products and techniques, and I like pushing myself to try different things.
Anyway, speaking of trying different things, here is a card I created recently for a swap hosted by Shirl. I used to participate in tons of swaps. Once, I was signed up for 22 swaps AT ONE TIME! Oh, boy, was that a stressful time! LOL Well, I decided to sign up for Shirl's swap to force myself to do a summer-themed project. You would think that I do a lot of these being that I live in Hawaii where summer is pretty much year-round, but no. I don't.
I made this card for my partner using this bright, fun line of beach-themed papers. Love those surfboards! I stamped a Greeting Farm image from their Cheeky line (love the Cheeky girls!) and colored her with Copics. I added pink Stickles to her flower.
I also added Glossy Accents to her beach ball.
I also lined the inside of the card. It's not something I always do, simply because I'm lazy. LOL
Here is the card with a RAK for my partner. I gave her a Cheeky Beach stamp of her own.
