C&S (Trying to Show Some Restraint!)

One more post for tonight.

I am very excited to be participating in the first challenge over at Young Crafters Unite! I know that the challenge is open to everyone (as it should be) no matter your true age, but I am excited that the name alone might draw some other crafty young adults like me. I do feel a little bit alone at times. I love ALL of my friends and followers but I do hope to get to know some other paper crafters that I have more lifestyle in common with.

The ladies over at YCU seem very partial to that Clean and Simple look so I REALLY tried to show some design discretion with this one.

Here it is:


This one is also the first in a series of cards I am making in order to challenge myself. I have SO many stamps I’ve never even opened and I am challenging myself to use them ALL! I used a Studio G rubber sentiment and a Studio G ‘with gems’ acrylic set.


Stamps: Studio G | Coloring: Copics | DCWV: Cardbase | Gems: Studio G
