Hey everyone! Like I mention in the video I've been sick most of this week, my kids have been fighting off this horrible cold as well (so much worse when they're not feeling well either), so my creative "energy" is pretty much non-existent!
However I was able to get a card made for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:
Check out the CTD blog post HERE <------click! to see what the rest of the team created with this combo - it's a fun one!
Here's what I made:
I created my own striped patterned paper with the SSS Diagonal Stripes background stamp, my MISTI and my SSS Intense Black ink. LOL I still prefer just using purchased patterned paper (it's more convenient!) however this is definitely an option for those that like creating their own (plus then you could make it in any color you wanted - the beauty of stamping!).
I struggled with this card, and show in the video how I ended up salvaging what was turning into a hot mess LOL.
I finished off the inside of the card with the "leftover" patterned paper and a sentiment from the new Handlettered Encouragement stamp set and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
Items marked with an asterisk (*) have been sent by a store/manufacturer (with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love). Everything else I purchase myself!
