Content creator. Designer. Influencer. These are very frequently used words in the world of social media, but do we really know their true meaning and do we really want to be labeled with one of these words? For the longest time I thought I wanted to be, but after some long conversation about it with fellow crafters, I’ve decided to go take a step back, reduce my time on social media and craft for me, and since I did, it has helped me be so much more creative!
Lately, I have been trying really hard not to impulse buy anything and everything I like! I eyed these Peony Stamps from Studio Katia for the LONGEST time and then finally gave in a few months ago, then baby came along, so only got to using a while back! I also got the coordinating dies and I’m so excited that they work well with other sentiments!
To make these cards, I started by stamping them on white cardstock using copic friendly ink. After coloring them using my copic markers, I die cut and fussy cut them, as the coordinating dies only cut one edge. To assemble the card, I diecut a lattice cover die from white cardstock, along with two banners from black cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto the diecut banners.
Before sticking the lattice diecut onto the card front, I ombre ink blended on it to add some depth. Lastly added the peony trimming and sentiment banner with some foam tape to add dimension, and finished off with some nuvo drops in morning dew.
