I had my first Mother/Daughter stamp club last night. The girls are middle-school aged. It was fascinating for me to watch them stamping along side their moms. After giving everyone directions on how I made my samples, I watched the moms carefully recreate what I had made while the girls thought outside the box and made their own versions. How cool is that?
I always have a greeting card and then some sort of gift item. This was one of two cards that they could choose from. The two cards are of the same design, but they have different punches and DSPs. This was the more sophisticated of the two. The other, which you will see tomorrow, is more playful. Whimsical. Youthful. The young girls chose to make this more sophisticated version!
Moral of the evening – – these young girls have a lot to teach me! 🙂
Let Your DSP Do The Talking
I started with Best Year Ever DSP (from the Sale-A-Bration catalog) and the card fell into place on its own.
The colors (Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Whisper White) are sooo yummy together so I grabbed a sheet of each.
The design in the DSP was flower-like, so I grabbed the flower punch out of my Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack as well as a few circle punches.
Bada-bing, bada boom. Punch, punch, punch. I was done. So … if you’re having a creative block, pull out your nearest DSP and let it “talk to you.”
The greeting was stamped with the And Many More stamp set.
