So here is my official first card of the new year. My creative juices feel like they are definitely starting to flow in this lovely yellow room I have now. These cards I made for a swap on my friend Joani's newly moved group http://cardsmadebyhand.yuku.com/. She moved us from MSN as they are closing their groups down. We are still feeling our way around the new site but I am so happy to be swapping again.
I cased this from a card I made at a class last year. My friend Sarah is my wonderful teacher. I think she may have gotten her inspiration from SCS. I just love this technique. It is one of my favorites.
As you can see the technique I just love is Split Negative. I used the Stampin Up set Baroque Motifs. The sentiment is from a Stampendous set I have yet to fully utilise. Cardstock is of course black and white with some Brilliant Blue to make it pop. I finally used my make your own brad set too which feels like it has been sitting in my cupboard for the longest time. New years resolution #1 Start making the most of the things you already have and resist buying more. (the resistance part isn't going so well as I just got myself a bunch more SU goodies today but at least I am sticking to the first part).
