Every year, I take a trip to the CK Convention and usually can hit a stamp convention as well. It is so much fun to see all the new products coming out and get a chance to play with some new techniques. Last summer, I took a Paper Crafts class where we brought 20 cards for a swap – meaning you brought 20 and came home with 20 different ones for ideas. This is the card I designed for the swap. I used a Denami Design stamp set and thought that the kittens just called for a cute pink and brown coloring (some of you know that is my fav combo!) I used lots of dots and circles and even embossed the pink strip with dots to make it all coordinate.
I always get a ton of ideas and have fun sharing my designs with others too. I only wish it could be more than once a year!
