    Joy Right Now Cards

    Hi there! It’s Riikka here today with two easy and fun cards! If you have seen my videos before, you might have noticed that I don’t plan ahead. I have inspiration for a project and, after that, I let the project lead me.

    For these two cards the inspiration came from the puffy sticker sheet. I grabbed some supplies that I felt would go with them and started creating. Next I was inspired by the eclectic, a bit quilt-looking patterned paper in the Misty Rose pad and mimicked that by using pieces of paper in my backgrounds.

    This time I didn’t want to use the beautiful Prima blooms on the cards, but play more with the stickers. I needed a focal point for them, so I picked two photo stickers from the Art Daily “Vintage Photobooth” sticker book.  They, again, inspired me to make tiny stories to each card using another sticker book from the Art Daily line.

    As you can see, creating is really about the process to me, and each step leads to the next one! If you want to see how the cards came into being, please see the video. I also gathered some tips for the post; hopefully you’ll find them handy!

    Thank you for stopping by today!

    Tip 1:

    When you don’t mount your clear stamp to a block, you can add stamping even after paper layers are done. You can slide the thin stamp underneath the paper layers more easily than if it was on a block. You can also stamp part of the the design!

    Tip 2:

    Mixing Prima Marketing products with packaging and other items creates a lovely, eclectic look. Utilize the beautiful product packaging, try clothing tags, or go to a hardware store to scout the shelves!

    Tip 3:

    I’m always inspired by old photos. They make me think about the stories the persons in the photographs have. If you are feeling poetic, try making your own stories or poems using either text stickers or cut words from old books. Or, better yet, mix the two!

    Tip 4:

    Repeating a pattern in a project is always fun, but it’s even more fun if you try to mimic it with your own style. I was inspired by the splotchy roses in the paper pad and created my own using the water-soluble oil pastels.
