Well, today I'm going to share a secret with you.
Yesterday's card, the one with the pink and orange keys...several of y'all commented and emailed me that it was "random."
Here's the secret.
There is nothing, not one tiny thing, random about that card. I spent about twenty minutes laying out the keys and deciding what colors to put where before I stamped a thing.
Yeah. I'm obsessive. And proud of it.
So, here's a card that is much more random. To create the key panel, I started with an oversized scrap and stamped a key in the middle. Then I worked out from there, using my gridded acrylic block to keep everything parallel or at right angles. Then, I trimmed the panel down using my clear quilting ruler and a craft knife.
The Lock and Key set from Papertrey Ink is amazingly easy to work with. What set or stamp have you bought recently that was easy for you? I'm interested in buying a few new things. I received a pleasant surprise when I did my taxes today, and mama needs some new stamps!
