Creative Crew 2023 - September

This is my 2nd blog post of today. If you're here to see my Blue Knight Rubber Stamps post, you can find it quickly by going --> HERE.

It's posting day for the Creative Crew. What exactly is the Creative Crew? We are a group of 7 card-making friends from various US locations who have a fun monthly creative adventure with a secretive twist. 

Normally, one of the group's members hosts each month. As host, she chooses a theme and puts together theme appropriate kits, which she mails to the other members, keeping one for herself, too. The group members all receive the same kit, but there is to be no conversation about the kit or the cards we're making. Then, on the 15th of the month, we all reveal our cards.

This month is a bit different. Instead of a host, I mailed one item to each member with a specific instruction. The item was a die - Your Next Stamp's Wonky Scallop Edge, but the instructions were "use it in some way other than as a die".

I'll be interested to see how the others used it. I used it to make a stencil and then did some ink blending on my card.

Here's my card:

I had a leftover image from an earlier Creative Crew kit (Carol's), so used it on my card, too.
