“Who wore it better?” “This or that?”
You’ve probably seen some of these questions on social media – asking whether you prefer choice 1 or choice 2, then chiming in with your own opinion. When it comes to stamping and card design, let’s try adding a new trend to the mix – Make It My Way with Meg! #makeitmyway
This is a new feature series that I’ll be offering this month. I’ll share a design one day, and then follow it up with another choice in a future post. In the case of this fun card layout, I’ve actually got three choices for you – so be sure to check back to let me know which one was your favorite.
The take-home lesson is this though: when you see a design you like on my blog, you don’t necessarily have to make it EXACTLY as I’ve shown it. Instead, I encourage you to think to yourself, “hey, I should make it my way!”
Just change up the stamps, the holiday, the colors – or all three, but use the basic layout as a good starting point.
Wondering about the details on this card? I’ve used the new Black Foil Sheets (yummy – they look like black patent leather!) along with the Best Route Enamel Shapes in black. I know – the colors and suite for those are actually part of the Best Route Suite, but the black dots are a perfect match for Halloween projects.
For the background, I added 3 drops of Gorgeous Grape ink refill to a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol. Then I just spritzed a couple of times until my Whisper White cardstock was the exact shade of purple needed. After that, just layer as desired!
I hope you’re as excited about the NEW Holiday Catalog as I am – it begins TODAY – on September 5 and you’ll be able to browse online! This #makeitmyway series will get you started with a single layout but 3 fun holiday bundles to love!
These darling bats are perfect for Halloween – both in black or in bright colors to match your season. The Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper will be a great addition and way to show off these fun images.
