How Do You Create?

February 15, 2014 No Comments

How do you create?  I usually start with a stamp set or with color.  Today it was color as I had some Daffodil Delight scrap hexagons left from the card I made a couple of days ago with the Hexagon Hive thinlit and some squares of Old Olive left from using the Polaroid shaped image in the On Film framelits.

You Make Me Happy card with Retro Fresh washi

I started from the middle on this card and then worked to the top and then back towards the base. I added a few of the hexagon pieces to one of the Old Olive squares as a starting point.  After stamping “You Make Me Happy” from Perfect Pennants in Midnight Muse, I cut it out using the Banner framelits.  When I laid it over the Old Olive piece, I thought the Old Olive layer needed something more.  So I decided to use the Honeycomb embossing folder for the embedded embossing technique.  Having used my cardstock ring at the beginning of this process, I already knew that I wanted to add Midnight Muse and Calypso Coral.  I chose Calypso Coral as the base but it was too much under my focal layer.  When I pulled out my Midnight Muse, I found I had a piece left from having cut a Window Frames Collection framelit.  I really liked how the cut out spaces let the Calypso Coral peek through.  But the layer was too flat, I just felt it needed more texture.  So, the Midnight Muse layer is embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder. Still feeling something was missing, I turned to my designer series paper.  Using the Banner framelits, I cut a banner from a piece of I Am Me designer series paper.  I cut the banner in half so that the tail hangs out the bottom of the focal layer and the top piece sticks out from behind the top of the focal layer.  Still not quite right.  Hmmm.  The Calypso Coral needed to be brought to the top.  Easy solution.  I used a piece of Retro Fresh washi tape and I was done.

It’s a great day to be creative.
