Going For A Ride

I have another sneak peek today showing off Going For a Ride which will be available from Love to Stamp on May 16th! Check out all the sneak peeks at the Love to Stamp Store Blog where we have something for you every day until it's open!


I've been wanting to work with yellow a lot lately and I found some yummy decorative paper to inspire me from Jillibean Soup. This pack had a wonderful selection of yellow, green, orange and browns and is perfect for the spring time weather in my area.


I also experimented putting cork through the Cuttlebug and used some corner dies from Provo Craft. The cork was self adhesive so it worked out nicely even though they were very delicate.


For the butterflies I used an Embosslits die folder which cuts and embosses at the same time. This one was from Stampin' Up and includes five butterflies on a little 2x2" square which was perfect for this size card. I cut two colors out to give them dimension and depth.

Did you know? Calligraphy is a type of visual art. It is often called the art of fancy lettering. A contemporary definition of calligraphic practice is "the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious and skillful manner." Modern calligraphy ranges from functional hand-lettered inscriptions and designs to fine-art pieces where the abstract expression of the handwritten mark may or may not compromise the legibility of the letters. Calligraphy continues to flourish in the forms of wedding and event invitations, font design/typography, original hand-lettered logo design, religious art, announcements/graphic design/commissioned calligraphic art, cut stone inscriptions and memorial documents.
