I'm not SAYING that's something I wouldn't do, just for the record.
It's just not what you're getting today.
I watched the most ridiculously adorable video today of a kitten learning to take a bath by watching its mom.
Fine, I'll share it.
Seriously - what is cuter than that??
Of course immediately after watching it I realized that I know why Splotchy doesn't know how to be a cat! He and Maddie were flung onto South Congress at 3 weeks old and didn't have time to learn to be cats. Instead, they imprinted on us, and now eat cheese and talk.
Neither of which are super desirable in cats, but if there's one thing I know as a committed card game player, it's that you just play the hand you're dealt with grace. Cheese eating talking cats are my lot in life.
As I was making today's video, I realized that there are some stamp sets that I've imprinted on. I bet it's the same for you.
Maybe they weren't the first stamp sets you owned, but they are the ones that STILL make you all twitterpated. You still have them in your craft room. You still remember the cards you made with them.
For me, one of these sets is Definitely Decorative Branch. I remember the Christmas card I made with it - and I actually found a few of them during my studio remodel - it was a Not Quite Navy card, with the branch stamped in Night of Navy and accented with white. It was one of the first cards I made that made me think I actually might be good at stamping some day.
I still have the stamp set.
I still love that design.
And apparently I still use it, because I realized when I was editing the photos and video today that I basically made the same card today.
It's a pretty simple card, but it does take a few steps, so I made a video for you - I think you'll have fun with this technique.
This STUNNING embossing folder will be available on September 1 with the holiday catalog.
This is one I will keep and use forever.
The cute little cardinal is from White Christmas - I love this set because there are two little birds - each facing a different direction. Sometimes you need a left facing bird, and sometimes you need a right facing bird! The Happy Winter is from the upcoming Happy Scenes set.
So enjoy the video tutorial - on this 100+ degree day - and wish yourself a happy winter! :)
