Random Stamping

There are special nights that my entire family squeezes themselves into my scraproom just so we can all be together if I am feeling crafty.  One of those nights was last week just before Kaela has to go back to UNT one last time this year  for finals week.   She was cracking the books, Mike was working on his computer chasing a software bug and I was looking at Pinterest for card ideas.

While I was scrolling a card with a random stamped background caught my eye.  The style of the card is not one that I wanted to play with but the random stamping just screamed for me to play.  So I did. 

Now you may remember seeing a peek of this card because I did a blog post about all of the fussy cutting that I needed to do.  But the FUN part was taking one sheet of White Daisy cardstock and just placing stamps where every they landed.  Then I cut that sheet into the card size that was needed.  From there the rest of the card just fell together in my mind.

It felt like it took a week to fussy cut the flowers but I was cutting 22 or 24, my fingers fell off at around 12.  I am so glad I took the time to go old school while I was cutting the flowers and did not try to find a cricut cut flower.  Sometimes it is nice to hone skills that we once used all of the time in our scrapbooking hobbies.
