Just A Note


I immediately recognized the sketch, and sure enough, it’s “retro.”


But, I couldn’t recall how I used it, so curiosity lead me to peeking into history. If you’d like to see my project from a year ago, here it is: 

Lots Of Lavender Occasions 2018

For today’s project, I felt like making music, so stamped the Sheet Music background stamp with Sahara Sand ink, and pressed Whisper White cardstock on top of it. This is backwards from normal stamping, but it insures I get a nice impression. 


Next, I found my favorite, little song bird in the Petal Palette stamp set, along with her branch for perching. I stamped the bird in Soft Suede ink, and the branch in Garden Green. They fit nicely within a Stitched Shapes circle die, which I raised on Dimensionals.

The sentiment, “Just a Note,” from Flourishing Phrases says just the right thing, don’t you think? I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink, and used a Rectangle Stitched die for cutting.

For the background, I chose a piece of Mint Macaron 6X6 Subtles DSP, with horizontal stripes mimicking the Sheet Music. It received the Rectangle Stitched treatment to match the other shapes, before gluing to the Mint Macaron card base.
