No stamping?! WHAT?!

If you're a stamping addict avert your eyes! There's...wait for it...NO STAMPING on this card. I can hardly believe it myself seeing as I'm a self-professed stamp-lover.  I challenged myself to make a card by not using any stamps or ink and instead focus on some of the pretty elements that are included in a 6x6 paper pad. 

I used the Open Book 6x6 paper collection by Crate Paper for this creation and jazzed it up by colouring the sentiment with a Spica clear glitter marker and by adding a few heart-shaped wood veneers (adhered with Multi Media Matte). 

The panel that showcases the sentiment comes from this piece- shown is the 12x12 version but the 6x6 includes many of these elements too. 

Going stamp and ink-free *might* be difficult considering all the AMAZING new stuff that keeps coming into the shop (enabler alert!) but give it a try! You might end up using some of those papers that you look at and think "what the heck will I do with that!?"

Thanks for stopping in today and have a GREAT day!
