Getting new crafting goodies always makes me happy!
I recently placed an order for some more stamps and dies from Pink and Main, using a gift card I’d one from one of their challenges. They arrived today (very speedy delivery!) and I’ve already used one of the new dies on today’s card.
I do love having new stamps and dies to play with. They give me ideas, and different possibilities for creations. That said I do seem to go through phases of using particular stamp sets. For example, for a long time my go-to florals were the Wild Hibiscus set, then the Brush Art Florals, and recently I’m alternating between the two. I went through a phase of using Lovable Legends for most of my cards, and it’s been quite a while since I last used them (although I’ll possibly be using them in the next few days!)
I recently had the idea of using chosing a sketch challenge and a colour challenge at random and then making a card consisting of the two. Maybe I should consider also picking a stamp set at random and incorporating that into it too. Could be a good way to stretch myself with my creations as well as to try to get more use from the less used sets I have. Although I think I should allow myself to veto combos that really won’t work..!
