H2H Challenges: Creative with Cardstock

For National Stamping Month (AKA the month of September), Heart2Heart Challenges wants you to get creative with cardstock!

I just had to play around with the color of the year, Wild Berry, and using it with Black, Pewter, and White Daisy cardstock (plus some Wild Berry glitter paper).  I tried my hand at a herringbone technique for this card.

I used one of my new favorite stamp sets, For All Occasions.  This set features 26 stamps for just about any sentiment you could need! 

Next time, I will probably stamp the "just because" in first generation or second generation only, not both.  I also wonder if I should have mated my Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts border with a slightly larger piece of Black cardstock to make it pop even more.  Also, next time, I may vary the width of my strips (these all started as 0.5"x6" strips).  Take note of how I layered a Black Burst onto a Wild Berry flower sequin!

Be sure to check out all of the H2H Designers' inspiration, and join us this month to get creative with cardstock!
