stamp-a-faire: stamper's first aid



Hi everyone! It's time for stamper's first aid for Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-Faire 2012. Design team members selected cards that were submitted on Nichole's blog to do a little "first aid" to them and help make the a stronger card design.


I chose this sweet coffee cup card by Kim Heggins - there are so many things that I love about Kim's card: the stamping on the neutral leave patterned paper, and her colors. There are a few things that I changed about her design and the card that I ended up with is this:


Here's a video walking you through my new card design and why I made some of the choices that I did...

Hopefully, I was able to share some design tips that will help you when designing your next card project! Thanks, Kim, for submitting your card! I had a lot of fun playing with your design :)


Stamper's first aid was our last activity of the day! I hope all of you had a fabulous time at "camp" and were able to spend some time crafting - either on your own or together with some friends. I had a great time and I look forward to browsing through all of the projects that have been and will be shared over at Nichole's blog.

Until next time! Have a great rest of your weekend!
