Hello, and welcome back! I finally had a chance to play around with a set from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog that will be available for purchase on June 2nd. This was the set that we received at the New Catalog Premiere event at the end of April! I love this set, and was really happy to have received it for free.
The set is called Work of Art, and I thought it would be fun to make the card front look like a piece of art. I wanted the greeting to be more subtle so the background wouldn't be too overshadowed. I used Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding inks, Memento Black for the greeting and Smoky Slate for the card base and greeting frame.
Here's a closer look at the first version. I added a Mini Silver Brad to complete the greeting, which was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I made a second version with Basic Black as my card base. Also, this time I stamped the greeting onto Vellum Cardstock, and attached that with two Mini Silver Brads.
I think I like this version better, with the greeting on Vellum. Which one do you like better? Isn't this a terrific set? I have lots of ideas for this one.
Well, that is all for today. I have more cards queued up to share her this week. Thanks for stopping by!
