This card is another one I made with the Stella Workshop on the Go [update: this paper pack has been retired] paper kit from Close to My Heart.  I just love the adorable stamp set that came exclusively with this kit!  When I created this card and the one I shared with you yesterday, I made them my own and didn’t follow the directions exactly but it’s pretty close.  That’s the thing – you can use these kits for inspiration and then enhance it from there.

The lamp shade was pretty tricky because I created it with four different petal shaped stamps. The only way I could get them nestled so close together was because Close to My Heart makes high quality acrylic stamps that are clear. I can see through the clear My Acrylix stamp block to line up my stamp next to the last image I stamped.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
