Well, I LOVE making anything out of paper.
My mom has a green thumb, she can touch any plant and it’ll bloom like never before. She has the most beautiful garden at her house and when ever she comes to visit us our gardens blooms as well…. but only until the day she goes home!!! Because you see I have a brown thumb… 🙂 and any plant I touch it starts to die. Just ask my husband.
But give me paper and I’ll make you a garden like never before. I love paper. For me there’s something special about touching and feeling paper while you work. Seeing things become alive in your hands it’s something special, for me anyways. 🙂
But there’s a lot more to it then just cutting paper. You can make your own paper and I love doing that. So last week after I finished one of my big projects I decided that I haven’t used my cricut just for fun in some time now and that I really wanted to stamps some of my own paper back grounds. So here is what I did…
I picked out some of my most used cricut cartridges.
And I cut out A LOT of different shapes using egg shell white card stock. The shapes turned out beautiful.
After that I started stamping the back grounds. Oh, this part is so much FUN! Lots of different colors, patters and shapes oh my!!!!! 🙂 Here is what I had after stamping several shapes. I still have a lot left of shapes that I didn’t stamp on or touched at all.
I only made 23 cards and have so many more beautiful shapes to play with. So be on a look out for more cards!!!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed seeing what can be done out of simple card stock with just some stamps and ink.
