Feeling Crafty

There for a while, I wasn't really feeling too crafty. I wanted to make stuff... I really did, I just was having a hard time making cards or scrapbook layouts. I made tons of ATCs and inchies, but no pages! Hopefully I'm out of that slump now! Today I made a thank you card using a few scraps of paper I had in my collection. Everything in this card was scraps. And I love it!

I did some heat embossing on the sentiment - I stamped in black ink and then embossed in clear embossing powder. I just love the effect that it gives. I inked the edges of the circle and then adhered it in the center of a circle that was already on my black pattern paper. It gives it a framed look that I love! The little strip of striped paper is actually a piece of what was leftover from my scrap of black pattern paper after covering my card. I just thought "Well, I have this scrap, I haven't used the back of this pattern yet, but I know the colors match... might as well use it!" All of this went through my mind in about a second flat. That is the way my brain works.

I also made this ATC. I've actually had it made for a while, but just haven't got around to posting it! It is the earth portion of my elements cards.

Hope you like them and have a nice day!
