Today we’re thrilled to welcome Melissa Chipperfield. Before we show you Melissa’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…
I think my love of stamps began somewhere around the year 2000 when some of my college friends introduced me to scrapbooking & card making. Two years later, I met a gal who was pretty passionate about card making and her enthusiasm was contagious! I am now the owner of too many stamps to count (I’m afraid to…)! I’ve tried my hand at different design styles over the years, but finally settled on clean & simple design. I love the challenge of designing something really simple that delivers a message in a creative way! Often times, I like a little humor thrown in for good measure. Many people know me from CASology, my clean & simple challenge blog. It’s there that I find loads of inspiration for my CAS addiction!
I am a registered dental hygienist, but am currently only working one morning per week while I stay at home to raise our four children (ages 10, 7, 4 & 1). My other passion is photography and you won’t find me leaving the house without a camera! I share both my cards and photography on my blog.
Today, I thought I’d share a card I made with Unity stamps, one of my current favorite stamp companies! Many of my cards use simple texture, dimension & color to add interest to a white background and this card is a good example of my typical design work. The sentiment was actually the inspiration for this idea.
I simply die cut two clouds from white cardstock and two clouds from metal sheets before layering them together & popping them up with foam dots.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink Stamper’s Select White
Other: Add a Little Dazzle metal sheet, Simon Says Stamp chevron clouds dies, foam dots, silver sequins
