Focus on the Words

In card-making, we often let an image be the focal point of our card, but try letting the WORDS in your stamp sets take the spotlight once in a while:

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Country Home stamp set this fall, but wanted to find a way to use other pieces aside from the pitcher and milk can. I started by letting the words fill the center, then stamped and sponged the flowers around the edge in Mint Macaron and Fresh Fig.

Stealing the show, though, is that lovely Tin Tile Embossing Folder! If you haven’t picked it up (along with the Galvanized Metallic Paper), make sure it’s on your next order.

Changing the Way I Work and Inking the Edges

After attending a marvelous Stampin’ Up! Leadership in Orlando, FL, I am re-focused on my business and with that re-focus, I am letting go of my guilt about this blog and putting my energies into activities that fit the way I share what I love in a way that is best for me. I will keep this blog open to use as a place to post things that need a link, but most of my sharing from this time forward will primaritly be on my Creative Juice by Loni Facebook Page and secondly, on Instagram (follow Creative Juice by Loni). For the most part, there will be different things shared on each platform, so I invite you to come socialize with me!

With that freedom, I did just post a quick video tip on my FB page today (Feb 2, 2015) in answer to a friends question about sponging. This is the outcome of three different ways to ink the edges of a card or focal point: Top: Ink pad directly to paper, middle: Sponge Dauber, bottom: Stampin’ Sponge.
