Clean and Simple Cardmaking, day 5

This day was all about stretching your stamps, we were supposed to make thre sketches using the same stamp in different ways. Actually I cheated on this. I rarely make sketches ahead of time (even though I like making sketches and follow them), and I decided to challenge myself by picking a stamp I havent yet used and use it in a different way than it was intended.


I love my Hero Art/Studio Calico stamp sets, and this journaling spot I actually never used. I hate writing on lines and cant even use lined paper to take notes on. But then I thought about using it for a background instead and made a window card. I love this card with the pops of white embossing. I am going to figure out two more ways to use this stamp, but not today.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
