I love stamps. I love
Basically, there's a lot to love about stamping.
But Heather's OLW132 challenge reminds me of one of my most favoritest things to do with stamps...be inspired by the stuff around me.
Her challenge is to be inspired by packaging.
Now, I know a lot of you don't love inspiration challenges. I get emails occasionally from people who say they are too hard. These stampers are intimidated by inspiration challenges because they don't know how closely their card should resemble the inspiration piece. They don't know what they can change to make the inspiration piece work with their supplies. They worry about breaking the rules.
These people worry entirely too much.
If you're worried about doing Heather's challenge, STOP RIGHT NOW. Don't worry. Be happy. Play with your stamps. See what happens.
You can turn this:
|For when I run out of time this December and|
need 50 more cards quick!
You might even take the ugliest packaging you can find (a compressed air canister!) and make something pretty from it.
|Card trimmed to cut off a mistake...because |
mistakes are just opportunities
to do something cool!
You just never know what will happen when you let yourself go and play with inspiration.
Give it a try.
You can do it.
Yes, you can.
