Anyhoo......trying to find a stamp set that would not only work with these papers BUT also had to fit the area that I had to stamp in was quite a challenge for me. Which reminds me of something that I was talking to my friend Cindy about earlier this morning.........
............When you set out to create a card, what do you start with first? Do you have a specific stamp set in mind that you want to use? Do you have a certain paper that you just bought and can't wait to cut into? OR do you start with a sketch, like a sketch challenge and go from there?
Today, I started with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge AND the Fanfare Level 2 Paper Pack. I knew that I wanted to play with the Fanfare papers, but also wanted to try out the new sketch. But when it came to the stamping......I had NO clue what I wanted to use with it. Which then created a challenge for me to come up with a set that spoke to me. As soon as I ran across this set in my boxes, I KNEW it was THE ONE! It yelled at me......USE ME, USE ME!! I know you know what I am talking about. lol
I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this as I know everyone has a different way of creating that perfect card.......
