Weathering the Storm Work of Art

Work of Art 04


This card uses the Sprinkles of Life cloud (punched out), Work of Art with markers for the rainbow and a sentiment from Six Sided sampler!  The rainbow is simply colored onto the Work of Art stamp using Stampin Write markers.  Then tie a piece of Baker’s Twine and add some of the cute Epoxy stickers colored with Copics or Sharpie markers.  I know I cased the idea for this card – and I usually write myself notes when I do – but I can’t find it!  So if you know where I saw the original idea, let me know!

Ink and Paper

Work of Art 03


And a few rhinestones 🙂  Today I did a card using only the new In Colors and the stamp set, Work of Art and Perfect Pennants.   Love when a card comes together so quickly!  You’re going to love these new In Colors!  Hugs, Fran

{heart} Work of Art

Another Work of Art (isn’t that fun?) card today – this one with a cut out heart.  I lined this card with Tangerine Tango DSP and cut the heart with my ecutter.  Now, I know you’re asking yourself “why didn’t she just use a framelit?”  All I can say is that very often I miss the obvious!  End of story!

Stamp Set – Work of Art (available June 2)
Cardstock – Whisper White, Tangerine Tango DSP
Ink – Gumball Green, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry
Etc – Should have been a Heart Framelit! Rhinestone

I have new stuff coming today and will post the new In Colors later on so you can see them.  Hugs, Fran

Sneak Peek Work of Art

Here’s the first card I made with the stamp set we got at the Catalog Premiere – Work of Art.  It is a beautiful set – a cross between Gorgeous Grunge and Happy Watercolor – that you will NEED to have in your collection  I did this card on Shimmery White cardstock because it has more “umph” than Whisper White and I knew I’d be using an aquapainter on the card.  First I sprayed the card with an alcohol/Pool Party reinker mix.  I stamped the image in Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Island Indigo and Wild Wasabi.  Then I used an aquapainter to go around the edges of each color so they would run and bleed into each other.  The sentiment (isn’t it great?) is stamped in Chocolate Chip. 

I added a heart and some sequins  – why yes, I AM on a sequin kick right now, thank you! 

Stamp Set – NEW – Work of Art (available June 2nd)
Cardstock – Shimmery White
Ink – Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Island Indigo and Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Silver Glimmer
Etc – sequins, aquapainter

If you’ve never tried Shimmery White cardstock – you need to!  It’s very substantial in weight and has a beautiful sparkle to it.  Hope you’ve enjoyed this Sneak Peek!  Hugs, Fran
