Crafting Forever with Fresh Fig...
Today's card features the Crafting Forever stamp set and my favorite saying from the set, "Do something creative every day." It doesn't matter what, just DO SOMETHING! If you wait to be inspired, you'll never get anything done. I don't always feel creative when I head to my crafting space. Sometimes I just sit here, staring at my stamp set and can't think of a thing to do. When that happens, I just pick a color, maybe some DSP and start playing around with it. I might look for inspiration in the catalog, or go online, but sometimes the best way to start is to just put a set of supplies together and see what happens. I used the new Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies to create the scalloped border. I also used the ink refills to paint my stamped images on the watercolor paper.

Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies
They're fun stamps that will remind you how much you love stoking your creative fires. And better yet, they're approved for use in conjunction with the Stampin' Up! Angel Policy. How could you go wrong!? Our clear-mount stamps * Are made of the same premium rubber as our wood-mount stamps. * Have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time. * Are precut so you don't have to trim. * Are repositionable; temporarily mount them on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for storage. * Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your clear-mount stamps (blocks sold separately). * Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.
