Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever

How fun is the sentiment on this card???

I'm pretty lucky to say that I get to do something creative just about every day :)

How about you??

We start our "creative" project for the day with a Rich Razzleberry card base, then added a piece of Lemon Lime Twist (this is seriously my favorite color right now!) card stock, followed by a layer of Whisper White card stock.

Next, we stamped that fun pot filled with paint brushes with our Basic Black Archival Ink Pad.  This image can be found in the Crafting Forever Stamp Set. 

Then, we colored in the pot and the paintbrushes with our Watercolor Pencils and blended the brushstrokes from our pencils with our Blender Pens.  I love how well these blender pens work to smooth out the lines made from the pencils.

We also stamped "Do something creative every day." (also from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set) in Basic Black Archival Ink.

We die-cut this oval (along with the Rich Razzleberry Scallop Oval behind it) using our Layering Oval Framelits.

Before adding these oval pieces to our card, we put a strip of the new Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon around our card.

Finally, we added a Whisper White Baker's Twine bow to our card for that final, finishing touch!
