Penelope has a Pencil

Hi folks. Happy hump day. I have a new card and video to share with you. (It’s a short one.) Today is a horrible weather day here in my neck of the woods and it just felt like a good day to color. Of course, my husband would say – “uhmmm…when don’t you feel like coloring??!” 🙂 Anyway…I filmed the coloring part for your viewing pleasure.

Here’s a look at the finished card. Pretty cute, huh? I love Stampingbella stamps. This one is an oldie, but a goodie. I have to say she is probably one of the first stamps I ever purchased. Now I have hundreds of stamp sets, but I still come back to this one every now and again. She just makes me smile.

If you have a couple minutes to watch, just click the link to the video below. Thanks for stopping by my blog today – and I hope your weather is better than mine! 🙂

Card Design Boo Boos – To fix or not to fix?

Knowing when to scrap a project and start over versus spending the extra time in trying to fix a mistake is a constant struggle for me.  Especially in cases where there is quite a lot of effort put into the project leading up to the dreaded mistake or design flaw.

For example, the image below shows a couple of practice cards where I was playing with the layout and how I wanted the card designed.  If you are familiar with the masking technique, you already know that it can be a bit tedious and planning is super important.  You have to know which images to mask off and when before you stamp and so I took a few minutes to practice on a few cards before I settled on my final design which is the colored panel in the below image.
