I had some Jillibean Soup art-themed papers that inspired to look through my pictures to see if I had any of me crafting. I found those old pictures taken over a decade ago when I first discovered scrapbooking. Back then I was sharing an apartment with my sister so I had to lug everything to the kitchen table when I wanted to craft, create up a storm and then put everything away again. My sister was incredibly patient with me, as she's had to eat in the living room a few times because not only was the whole kitchen table covered with my stuff, but I had also put some stuff on chairs as well for lack of room! Seeing that mishmash of stuff in the pictures makes me really grateful I now have a spot reserved to my crafting and better crafting supplies! I've come miles - wish you could get a close-up of that card that was displayed on the table in front of me. You'd get a good laugh!
Some of the Jillibean papers had 3" x 4" die-cut cards that I cut apart and used, but I embellished them a bit - I added Candy Dots on the pushpins and a yellow-embossed wooden heart on the pin cushion. The sentiment card was stamped with stitching and embossed with Melon Mambo powder, then I added stamped sequins. Those image come from the Love You Sew hostess stamp set. I used the used the same set to create my own card at left. I started with the grid Project Life cards Stampin' Up! was carrying and I embossed the paint brushstroke image in seven colors: Merlon Mambo, Cherry Cobbler, Tango Tangerine, Crushed Curry, Gumball Green, Pool Part and Navy. Then I inked the little brush with Stampin' Write markers in matching colours and handcut them, then glued them to the card using Dimensionals. That whole process was a little time-consuming, but I love the result. I added the date using the Collage Numbers stamp set (long retired) and Jet Black StazOn ink.
