#the100dayproject : handmade card 70/100 : never give up

but in all seriousness, i couldn't do what i do without the help of this guy. during show season he's right there with me, doing all the heavy lifting and talking me up to anyone and everyone. he's great at feedback and at suggesting ideas for things i would never think of and i love when he keeps me company in the craft castle. he encourages me to spend far too much money on new supplies ["because you need them, obviously" is one of his go-to lines] and he's one of the most incredible humans i've ever met. so it's well deserved that he earns employee of the month. love you babe!

okay...onto the card for today! the inspiration wheel landed on heat embossing and sometimes that intimidates me. however, i decided to try a few different things.

do you ever have those ideas that you think are going to be money - like so amazing that there's no way they won't work out? and then you try them and they totally ... don't?

as i've mentioned over the last couple days, i have some things in the works coming up. two of these things are virtual online events that i'll be participating in during the end of the month/beginning of december along with a slew of super talented makers. so many shows, festivals and events have been cancelled and i feel like this is the best option for me to try and reach more people while sharing more handmade happiness.

i was pretty jazzed when the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play today - i've been itching for a reason to use coordinating patterns. one of my favorite ways to do this is to utilize 6x6 paper pads. generally speaking, the colors coordinate and often share patterns/themes that mix well together. plus, the designs are smaller than traditional 12x12 pages so they look amazing on cards!

today's spin on the inspiration wheel ended up on the wedge dedicated to heat embossing. i had an idea in mind for when i landed on this and i'm so thrilled with the way that it turned out!
