Good morning blog surfers! I hope your Thursday is off to a good start!
I've been working on a digital card using an adorable new Two Peas in a Bucket kit, but I'm just not happy with the way things are going! The card I made was just okay, nothing special, no wow factor, which is okay. I suppose. But I know I can do better! And to do my creative team job right, my project needs to inspire you and make you want the kit, right?
When your creative juices dry up, what do you do? I turn to my favorite blogs to get me fired up again. The other day I wanted to play with some of my latest Papertrey Ink stamps and since I'm pretty new to stamping, I didn't really know where to begin. So I hoped onto Debbie Olson's blog and found a super cute card to lift.
This is the card I created with Debbie's help. Isn't this an amazing design?!?! I love Debbie's work and I love Papertrey Ink. I secretly want to be a Papertrey Ink girl. Oops, I let that cat out of the bag! ;)
It was cool to recreate Debbie's card, to experience just how she combines the Papertrey Ink stamps and die cuts together. I never would have thought to stamp the flap of this seed envelope. Cute, huh?
I'm also pretty new at coloring with Copic markers and using Debbie's card as a guild, I was able to see how to color these beautiful flowers.
I love all the little details that Debbie puts into her cards like the little butterfly.
Here's Debbie's card. Mine turned out almost as cute as hers! And I had a lot of fun doing a self-taught Debbie Olson class!
Now maybe I can get back to my Two Peas digital assignment and create something with a little more zing!
