Hi! I'm Mindy, a former athletic trainer and fitness instructor turned SAHM to an adorable toddler. In my "free time" (haha) I love to stamp and paper craft! I'm a Stampin Up demonstrator and would LOVE to show you how to be creative with ink and paper and maybe some glitter ;-)
Hi stampers! I have a short and sweet post and a simple card to share. I had parts of this sitting on my desk for weeks. I struggled with it for a long time and then wham, it just came together one night. Hooray! Maybe I'm getting my brain cells back!
Don't look too close at the gold feather. It may have gotten it's top lopped off by accident further frustrating me and causing me to run from my room saying bad words ;-) But in the end I think it worked out ;-)
Stamps: Four feathers, snuggles and smooches
Paper: Whisper white, night of navy, gold glimmer
Ink: Hello honey, marina mist, night of navy
Accessories: Baker's twine, feather framelits
I think I've learned that I can't force it and when things aren't working I just need to walk away! And there's my favorite sentiment of all times, the old MPP stamp! I love that thing!
Hi stampers! It's been a while, I know! I accidentally had to peeve out of the last Fab Friday challenge. I kind of forgot about it. I mean, I went to stamp two nights…and actually made a few things I liked…which made me get all excited to keep stamping although it made me forget what I went to stamp in the first place…the Fab Friday challenge, lol!!! And then I was at my mom's last week taking Ian and I's first solo trip there so I didn't have any of my stamp stuff. But I'm happy that I made some things I liked. I'm hopeful the trend will continue now that I'm back home.
Here's one of the simple cards that got me going. I had the washi tape down on paper for a while just sitting on my desk. Seems I'm making parts of cards here and there these days and waiting for them to inspire me :-) I also pulled out my very favorite Paper Pumpkin stamp for the sentiment as I couldn't find anything I was liking. I LOVE this stamp and will use it for-ev-er!!!! Sorry if you get sick of it :-)
This is a take on one of my all time favorite layouts. I'm just going to try to rely on things I've found to be tried and true while I work through my feelings of less than creative-ness :-) I think this could also make a cute baby card.
Hi stampers and happy Friday! I know, I've failed at posting more again. I'm not sure what else I'm doing all day since it's frigid and we're stir crazy!!!! Oh well. One of these days. At least it's time for a new challenge over at Fab Friday! How about some pretty spring colors even if it feels like it's never going to warm up!?!?
This card didn't turn out quite like I planned and I may re-vamp it. It's supposed to be for Ian's future wife for her first birthday :-) The Backes men like older women, hehe! I wanted to include a "1st Birthday" sentiment but it didn't work out quite like I'd planned so I may have to try again!
Make sure to head on over to the Fab Friday site and check out the other inspiration and play along!
