One Last Work of Art Card (for awhile anyway)


I have one more card to share using the Work of Art stamp set. It is one of those sets that so many possibilities can happen with it. Just by using ink, combining stamps you can create many things. I have a couple of ladies in my group that I thought of when I made this card. Matter-of-fact I know that one of the ladies created some just last weekend. Her son is in the Army and she wanted to make some to send to him and his friends. 

To create this card you will need to "mask". To do that, stamp the heart on a post-it note and cut it out. Once cut out, stick it to your Whisper White Cardstock. Using Night of Navy ink, stamp the swoosh (I don't know a better term for that image, lol). Remove your sticky heart and you are left with a white heart. To make the shorter lines, again using a post-it note cover your image you just stamped. Then stamp three lines. Remove the post-it note and stamp two long lines below. You get a really cool looking flag. I then mounted it on Night of Navy and Real Red cardstock. Just by matting it you make a simple card look WOW. It really dresses it up!

Next week I will be showing samples from a new stamp set - Choose Happiness! So hope you come back! Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous Work of Art


This was a fun and simple card that we made at Stamp Club in August. I really love the 2013-2015 In colors. They just make me happy! This is a fun card with some bling too...see the glitter paper and the rhinestones. Bling is a girls best friend and I know all my girlfriends would love to receive this card in the mail! 

Everything is stamped and assembled on a 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White Cardstock. I then wrapped twine around the card, securing the ends to the back. I took another piece of twine to make a bow. The entire cardstock is then mounted on Crisp Cantaloupe with pop dots. Gives it a little dimension and class. 

This would be VERY easy to recreate with other colors! How fun to make into a little set for your girlfriends. Change the sentiment and they could become fast Thank You cards. The possibilities are endless! 

Thanks for stopping by today! We had stamp club last night and I'm excited to start sharing samples and projects from it. Look for those coming soon!

Just For You - Work Of Art Teacher Card


Here is another great example of thinking out of the box. (I again have to thank Pinterest for the idea). Since I'm a teacher I have a soft spot for making items for teachers. I thought this card was so cute and would be awesome to make as Thank You cards to give a set to your favorite teacher! Even though my "apple" isn't perfect you know what it is - something that is awesome! It doesn't have to be perfect and it still looks great!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

A Christmas Card Using Work of Art


I just love that you can find so many samples on Pinterest using the Work of Art Stamp Set. That was the stamp set for my September Stamp Club. I always do two projects and then I have a board of samples using that set. This way my club members see other ways to incorporate the stamp set. It makes it nice to see all the things you can make with just one stamp set. 

The neat thing about Work of Art is that you can use the stamps to make things. Take for instance this card. Just by using 3 stamps from the set you can create a "tree" (long brushstroke on bottom, medium in the middle and small on the top). Then using the long line you can make the "trunk". To make the ornaments I just used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (squeezed dots all over the tree). The top is a star die cut and a rhinestone on top.

What a fun card, huh? Pretty easy and would make a great Christmas Card this year! I hope you enjoyed :D Thanks for stopping by!

White Christmas


One of my favorite stamp sets from the new holiday catalog is White Christmas. I joined a swap with my team and this was the card I made for it. I have to say I am loving the Photopolymer stamp sets - makes it so easy to line things up! I used my Aqua Painter and ink pads to add some color to the trees, hill and snowman. The Merry Christmas sign, scarf and nose on the snowman were colored in using my Stampin' Write Markers. 

I also used a little of the new All is Calm Specialty paper. That then helped me pick my colors since I was able to see what colors matched the DSP. Easy Peasy - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that everything coordinates. Makes creating so much easier!

I have to say thank you to everyone who participated - the cards were all wonderful! I got so many samples using products from the holiday catalog that I don't have yet. My customers are going to love looking through them! 

I want to give a big shout out to my DD today - she turns the big 11. We are doing a minute to win it party and I can't wait to see all the kids try out the games. I will be taking lots of pictures so be on the lookout for those. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
