Nothing like a good challenge to bring out the creativity and for me, that’s exactly what my assignment for the 75 Card Challenges blog post did—got the old creative juices flowing.
My lucky draw was challenge #18 – Stamp with a Homemade Stamp. I scoured my house for options, tried several without the result I was hoping for, and settled on carving my design from a cork.
The thing I quickly realized about working with cork is the porous nature doesn’t create clean edges, but my diamond shape seemed okay with the limitation. I used my newly made stamp to create a line of diamonds, layered it over crocheted ribbon, and voila, a card was born.
If you want to really challenge yourself, type the list of challenges, cut them up, and place them in a jar. Each week, draw one out and use that to design a project. You’ll love trying new things and end up with a variety of cards, tags, bags, and more to share with those you love.
Check out today’s challenge on Moxie Fab World and have fun creating!
