New Work of Art

May 5, 2014 No Comments

No, not my creation.  It’s the stamp set I was given at last Monday’s Catalog Premiere.  I know some people pull their new things out of the box right away and use them as soon as they arrive.  But, last week I was in a, “let me play with some of my retiring stamps” mood.  This morning I decided it was time to crack open the stamp box and prep my stamps.  Though the stamps come die cut and ready to label, I choose to trim mine.  I have fewer stamping accidents — I mean creative opportunities happen that way.

I love Crisp Cantaloup with Basic Black and wanted to use those two shades with some of my designer paper.  The first pack I spied was Modern Medley.

 

First Work of Art w/o Sentiment from theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

Since the background in Modern Medley is Very Vanilla, I used that cardstock for my base.  I was going for a clean look with pattern and this piece of Modern Medley fit the bill.  Adding a layer of Very Vanilla, I stamped the large image in Crisp Cantaloup.  Then, I added the Gold embossed distressed chevron image across the two layers.  The distressed stripe was inked in Crisp Cantaloup and stamped off first.  Finally, I inked the distressed circle with Memento ink and stamped over the embossed chevron image.  The last details were the Large Basic Pearl (on the retiring list) and a row of Basic Pearls along the bottom right.

 

 

 

 

Now when I finished this card, I went back to prepping the rest of the stamps in the set for my use.  When I got to “Thank”, it made me think of the Banner punch.  That thought turned into this:

I punched a piece of Crisp Cantaloup with the Banner punch and added the word “thank” that had been inked in black.  The banner is on a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then, I inked “You” in black and stamped across all of the layers.  When you do this, you have little blank spots where the stamp can’t quite make contact.  So, I pulled out my Stampin’ Write Basic Black marker and carefully inked the spaces the stamp had missed.

 

 

 

 

Two looks, one card.  Now, that’s an easy change up!

The Retirement Lists I mentioned can be found under the On Sale tab.  I will update them again tonight for your viewing tomorrow.
