darn amazing...

Hello!!!  Crazy weather continues here in the PNW!  Yesterday we had hail!!  The first time it hailed I just happened to be out on a walk so I got a little soaked!  Thankfully the second time it started hailing my little guy and I were in the car heading home from school.  All this crazy weather has made me want to just spend the time inside making stuff.  Got a couple of things done last night and I'm sharing one of them now.  Sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed by all the crafting supplies I have and when that happens I find that doing some simple collage stamping helps me feel less scattered and overwhelmed.  Last night was one of those times so when I set about creating a card for the current Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches challenge I pulled out some of my favorite (and older) Stampin Up! sets to create my card.   I used Summer Silhouettes, Gorgeous Grunge and Kinda Eclectic.  The sentiment and die are from My Favorite Things.  After die cutting a panel of white cardstock I started stamping and then had to start all over again because I stamped one of the images in the wrong ink color!  After all the stamping was done I die cut the word amazing from the panel.  Several additional words were die cut and adhered to the top one.  I adhered some washi tape behind the negative space and then inlaid my die cuts back into the panel.  Love all the mix of images and the colors!!



Thanks for stopping by...

Modern & beautiful with your incredible collage stamping, Rosemary! Love this great card! I'll say the weather is crazy--one minute bright sun & the next it's pouring down rain & so dark you'd think it was 5pm even thought it's 1pm!

OH...Rosemary...Rosemary...this is simply AMAZING, and beautiful!
You know how much I love your collage-stamping.
I want to come right over to admire this beauty IRL.
You've used the pretty colors, in-laid sentiment, & sketch SO beautifully.
It's a WINNER...for sure!

So glad you were not injured by the hail while out on your walk. Take care!
We've had some unusually WARM temperatures for January...in the 80s.
