Hey all, Tabbatha here today for an ode to stubbornness inspiration post. 🙂
Have you ever had a vision of a card, and even if things don’t go well the first time, or the second time, you keep at it until you see it finished? Well that is this inspirational card.
The Layout Details
The card idea started with the Sunshine Sorbet Shapes cutting file. I sized the hex background to my card, which is 5.5″x square. I also included some of the single hex shapes (resized) to make the background not so square in alignment. The randomness plus the white space are what really made this work for me. Using some bright, colorful paper I also cut out the larger star shape from the cutting file.
It is at this point where I must jump in with my bout of stubbornness. As you can see from the closeup of the layout, the hex background really is detailed. Easy enough with just the triangles, but if your electronic cutting blade is dull, well… you get to cut it out by hand. Which I did, twice! Twice? Yup. I just couldn’t let the idea go and so I finished the cuts, most were 3/4 cut through, only the tips of the triangles were attached.
Truth be told, this layout screams to be used with the Sunshine Sorbet paper, however I’m all out. >.< I’ll be putting in an order here soon for some more paper and some more stamps. 😉 Until then though, I used an interesting backing paper that was similar in color scheme.
Of course the layout needed some 3D embellies to finish it off and the Hexie Dots were too perfect! These wood veneers are a lot of fun to use, and I love the different sizes!
The Some Odd Girl Inspirational Image
For a busy layout such as this, I knew only a simple, cute image would do. So enter Coffee from Breakfast Friends!
With the Breakfast Friends clear stamp set (currently sold out, but watch the shop!) you will find one of the best sentiment stamps that Some Odd Girl has to offer – “You get me thru the day”. 🙂 It is perfect and all too true for us morning coffee drinkers. 😉
I do have another confession though, see that striped mug in the picture? Well… the third of the mug that you actually see? 😀 It is my own #SomeOddGirl #SOGAprilPhotoChallenge picture for today! It is my favorite latte mug to use. The black and white stripes do not meet up exactly either – so they are also a little quirky themselves, just like me. 😉 So my striped mug and Coffee from the clear set are definitely my top mugs to use and perfect for the photo challenge!
