Happy Saturday, friends! It's been awhile since I posted, I blame Fall Break for stealing my will to live. (Ha!)
The kids are back in school, the weather really does feel like Fall and I just might be getting my creativity back, woohoo! The Clearsnap Out of the Colorbox Challenge for October starts today. It's a beautiful color combination chosen my Jean--Pistachio (I used Citrine though), Chestnut and Picante. I used these colors and Hero Arts stamps to create my own patterned paper. I love how this card turned out and I owe my inspiration to AnitaRex, she recently posted a card in the Hero Arts Flickr group using this diamond stamp to create a pattern and it was a real aha moment for me. We often neglect the small stamps that come in sets, but using them to create repeating patterns is a great way to create custom patterned papers that coordinate with the main images that are usually the reason we buy the stamp set in the first place.
Be sure to check out the Clearsnap Blog for this Challenge and loads of inspiration everyday.
