#the100dayproject : handmade card 85/100-2 : smile my friend
this particular sketch is from mft stamps - i love how each week they have both a sketch and a color challenge. speaking of goals for next year as i mentioned in yesterday's post, i am looking forward to participating in more challenges next year - i really enjoy the way that they get me thinking outside the box! for this one, i decided to interpret the vertical lines near the bottom as strips of patterned paper and to turn the card sideways - so you know i had to incorporate a rainbow in one way or another!

today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play and because i'm only *slightly* obsessed with rainbows and all things colorful, i decided to make a small set of cards. each one has the same overall design, as well as the same sentiment. however, each one features a different color patterned paper with diagonal tone-on-tone stripes.

today i had several packages of new supplies arrive - and i've still got a couple on the way! [yayyy for black friday shopping!] one of the things that i was most excited about was the complete set of ink colors from concord & 9th. i've been waiting for them to come back in stock for what seems like forever and on black friday they did and i quickly scooped them up! just look at the glorious colors - and when i opened them, i was in awe. they have such a cool texture and the few colors i sampled are just fantastic. yay - plus, now i want to make a piece of art with all the ink samplings from the three main companies i use . so stay tuned for that.

the inspiration wheel landed on die-cut element so i pulled out a die-cut that actually arrived this morning! i've had my eye on it for what seems like forever and when it went on sale, i decided i needed to have it! it cuts out up to four different elements that can be used in conjunction with one another, but i only used two on today's card. i also used a handful of other newer products and therefore today's handmade card has a bunch of photos.

#the100dayproject : handmade card 73/100-2 : thinking of you
today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play and i have to admit that while i was working on creating the card, i kinda forgot what i was supposed to be doing. so it has some patterns, but if you focus solely on that element, it's a little boring. it happens, right?
