I really don’t use Timeless Textures enough! I love all the background and texture stamps available from Stampin’ Up! They allow you to add dimension and a lot of design to your stamping. And I love vintage, artsy looks much more than I actually show on this blog. Today’s card is a case of a card and scrapbook layout by Artisan Designer, Jackie Aitken. You can see her original design HERE!
I love her work and found this on Pinterest many months ago and kept a printout in my notebook of “ideas to try”. I was looking for some inspiration and I finally decided to see what I could do with the idea! I love how Jackie layers elements in a card. And she really used Timeless Textures and several other sets to a great advantage in her design.
When I look back on my beginnings in paper craft, I did a lot of layering! In fact my very first blog post way back in 2008 was the project below. I loved fibers and paper layering back then! But it wasn’t until I discovered stamps I found how how wonderful paper with ink can be! The stamp and ink was the magic for me and the mediums I have used almost exclusively since then.
Casing Jackie’s design and experimenting with Timeless Textures and Artisan helped me get past a creative block and try a few more ideas on my own, which I will share in the next few days. So, I always encourage people to try CASEing when you run out of ideas. It can really help you develop your skills and allow you to branch out and do your own designs.
