ReDesign on a Dime: Amy Tsuruta
I love Amy! She combines patterns and textures in such interesting ways, and yet her cards are not busy or overloaded. That's hard to pull off. But she does it every day.
Here's Amy gorgeous card that inspired me, along with mine.
You can get a closer look at Amy's card here.
I fell in love with the combination of vellum and wood grained card stock, and the cut off circle is very clever. I didn't have any wood grained card stock or stamp or plates, so I wasn't sure how to create that look without spending a dime, until Amy very, very nicely sent me a pack of this card stock in a variety of colors. Unfortunately, the store where Amy bought it has since closed and I have not been able to find this anywhere online.
I kept Amy's layout because I loved it, particulalry the cut off circle. I had vellum, a circle die, and twine. I used a Flourishes stamp set and colored with Copics on both sides.
Since Amy sent me the card stock, I didn't need to do is a lot of ReDesigning. I love my card as well as Amy's and didn't spend a dime. Sweet.
Thank you Amy for the inspiration and the card stock!
