A perfectly gloomy day here in Edmonton today … the perfect day to make some soup, do some housework and generally relax! Today is one of those rare days where I have nothing on the calendar!! Of course rather than try to get AHEAD of the game for once I'm enjoying a second cup of coffee and thought I'd take a few minutes to post a project for you! I know, right? Crazy! *lol*
Last night I managed to steal an hour in my craft room. I started off cleaning up from Sunday's party … but that quickly turned into a mini crafting session. Back in April (April 30th to be exact!) I went to the new catalogue premiere and got a free stamp set called Work of Art. Almost a month later I FINALLY got a minute to put it together and test drive it. Oh ya - LOOOOVE it!! Here's what I came up with:
Fun!!! There have been SO many awesome samples using this fun new set … it's a "must have" … right up there with Gorgeous Grunge! I couldn't resist making a fairly monochromatic card using the delicious new Blackberry Bliss In Color colour. What pairs better with purple than gold??!! The picture isn't a great one but it's awesome *live*! I inked the swipe image and silly stamped it four times, so the colour got lighter each time. I gold embossed the sentiment from …. umm …. you know … that other stamp set I love …. uh … Really Great Greetings? Sure - let's go with that (where is that catalogue when I need it??). The sequins are from the gold sequin ribbon/thread/rope stuff (ok … apparently brain is quite engaged yet this morning!) … I took them off the string and attached them with glue dots (been going through glue dots like Tic Tacs this week!). I matted the top layer on a piece of the Gold Foil … and that on a piece of Blackberry Bliss. Love it! …now I'm craving blackberries …. think I'll hit the fridge!
Pop back tomorrow(ish) … I have more stuff to share (and apparently the time to share it!) Until then - have a stampy day!
