Just Because in Celery~
No stamps, no ink, talk about a Limited Supply Challenge! Well, we could have used stamps and ink but I went the rub on / patterned paper route. Second time using the rub ons, still not so sure about them....the one shot deal is tough on a perfectionist brain. :)
The LSC was all about one color plus white, not shades of one color, and no other neutral other than white. Celery and white are a fresh, clean combination. I did this card in about 10 minutes before heading out to an awards ceremony down at Brett's school.
Patterned paper is from an ages old mat pak that SU! made available sometime last year, maybe? I can't remember....
The card is pretty self explanatory, stem is pierced with a piercing tool and a foam mat, ribbon is May Arts, White mini brads are from StarlitStudio.
Now to a more serious situation, ever stayed in a relationship longer than you should but haven't the gumption to leave? That's sort of how I am feeling about SU! these days, well, months actually....ever since the Fall/Winter catalog came out last summer I haven't been feeling the love. Not smitten any more. For the past 5 plus, gosh almost 6, years I've anticipated and longed for new product, mini catalog offerings, SAB...oh SAB, I couldn't wait for the sets. Not so much anymore.....it's a tough place to be, SU! is my roots, where I began stamping, but they no longer excite me....I'm not sure what to do about it. I know that there has been a shortage of SU! posts here, which is why some have stopped subscribing, but when you aren't inspired by a product, it's hard to create with them, ykwim?
So, I'm fence sitting for now.
