I've been in a creative slump lately. Don't you hate it when that happens? I sit down at my desk and stare at the Gypsy screen trying to come up with something. And I have nothing. UGH! So, I choose some paper and still...nothing. UGH! And this goes on and on and on. I have found that if I let this continue, it gets harder and harder to get back in the swing of things. So, last night, I made myself sit down and make a card. I must admit - I re-made this card like 5 times because I was unhappy with it, but now I like it!
The base and mat are from Ashlynn's Alphabet. I welded the shadow pieces together to make the base. I didn't write it down, but I want to say I cut the scallop shape at 3.50".
I cut the flowers in graduated sizes from Serenade Solutions. I ran them through my Cuttlebug to emboss them and added a wooden button with some twine.
I used foam to make the flower several layers high and give it dimension. Now I just hope it fits in my envelope!
The stamped sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michael's. I inked the edges of everything and slapped it on there - Voila!
I would love to hear from you - What do you do to boost your creativity when you're in a rut?
