I used to scrapbook (yes, that's a verb) obsessively. Now I make cards obsessively. But my supplies are still scrapbook-ready because I will go back to it one day. My family loves looking at their scrapbooks, but when Simple Scrapbooks magazine folded and my local scrapbook store closed (within months of each other!), I lost my scrappin' mojo.
Five years is a long time for mojo to go on vacation, but it is what it is.
Those photo-specific supplies, however, occasionally work really well on cards, and these kraft photo corners were perfect for my white/kraft/pop of turquoise two-layer card.
The vase is colored with a copic marker, and the stems are highlighted with Smooch...I think the color is Pool. Here's a closer look at the color:
The photo corners help anchor the stamped panel and give a bit of definition to the white-on-white layering.
Do you repurpose other art supplies for use on stamped cards? I mean, Copics and Sharpies weren't invented for stamping, but lots of stampers use them now. I've used mat board and canvas on cards, too. So, what are your favorite non-stamp-specific art supplies to use on cards?
