Design Infused #5

Looking for my Season’s Givings Blog Hop and Giveaway? CLICKETY CLICK.

Hello 2014! I’m ready to conquer another year of blogging  and excited to see what it brings to the plate. Thanks to your kind suggestions on the previous post, I now have better knowledge of what you’d like to see more from me and I’ll be addressing them as I go.
One of the things on my radar is being more specific about my design process and so I will be doing more tutorials, especially in video format. You would know already that I’ve been making baby steps in terms of video tutorials for StampNation but my aim is to bring some public content to my Youtube channel as well. It’s pretty bare as of today (unless you’re a StampNation member in which case you have access to exclusive content) but you’ll want to subscribe or bookmark it if you’d like to stay updated.

I’ve been wanting to do another Design Infused post but I’ve been otherwise wrapped up with different things. I’m back today with some cards, triggered by this piece of awesomeness.

What is Design Infused series about?
I take a design piece that inspires me (be it stationery, clothing, packaging, etc.), and translate it into a custom paper-craft design, using predominantly stamps and ink. Letting what I see around me influence my work is a big part of what I do and I want to show you how fun it is.
I collect the inspiration in my Pinterest board especially created for this purpose, and pick a piece from the lot for each installment of this feature.

And here’s how it happened:

The one layer card is made from off-white cardstock. I stamped one more piece of card, this time white. Trimmed it, enhanced with extra stamping (dark blue flower centers, stamp from the retired WPlus9 Poinsettia Patterns set) and mounted on off-white card.

Thanks for taking a peek, see you again in a few hours for a new sketch!
