Long Time, No Craft part 1



It's been a while since I got into my crafting. Last weekend I spent the day with my friend, Becs, in her amazing craft room. I raided her supplies, and fell in love with a number of her Studio Calico stamp sets (from her monthly kits). Mainly I became obsessed with arrow stamps, and her 'Be Awesome'stamp.

I decided to let the stamps do the talking, and stuck with Kraft card (which I enjoy stamping with). Most of my stamping was directly onto the card- this usually makes me very nervous (as I tend to screw up!).

Here's some of the sets I used:

 


This is a 'blank' Be Awesome card before I started in with the arrows:
 
  


Found Becs' little wooden shapes, and some enamel dots to embelish with:







All are very simple and give off a sort of 'trendy vibe' that I dig. Before I left I made two other random cards:




My other project was a card for a friend, whose friends are getting married. I used their initials, but the rest I just winged, inspired by the paper set (can't remember its name, but it was a Basic Grey one).
