Morning Warm Up

This was for today's Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS, Let's Warm Up. Valerie's challenge was to make a 3x3 card that took no longer than 15 minutes to make. It was a lot of fun! Her purpose was to get your juices flowing by doing this every morning, even if you don't really have time to stamp! You can read all about it on her blog. I think it's a great idea! I will definitely be doing this more often! What a great way to use up smaller scraps AND have little notecards ready to attach to a gift? Not to mention just getting your creative juices flowing! Give the challenge a try! It really is a lot of fun! I stamped "A Little Something" from Fancy Flexible Phrases on a white Great Big Brad from Hot Off the Press. I just kept my fingers crossed that it worked because the sentiment JUST fit with no room for error! I really wanted to use THAT particular sentiment because of the size of the card! I thought it would be cute. Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Fancy Flexible Phrases; Paper- DCWV green, Wild Asparagus patterned paper; Ink- StazOn Jet Black; Accessories- Great Big Brad by Hot Off the Press, Prima flower, May Arts ric rac, word window punch, paper piercer.
