Awesomely artistic, Use them or Lose them, Work of Art

Use them or lose them #5 … set 2

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

A couple of days ago I shared a couple of cards made with Awesomely Artistic… well I have another few cards made with the same set, but this time thank you cards.

I kept this quite a simple card.  White cardstock stamping the main floral image in black.  Then stamped the splodges in a stamped off Melon mambo.  I then stamped the dragon fly in Rich razzleberry on separate paper and cut it out to layer on top.  The sentiment are Work Of Art stamps… I love the You!

I added a border around the edge in the rich razzleberry and some stickles dots to add some bling.

I finished the envelope with some more stamping too…

Nice elegant cards and would work with plain neutral card blanks too.

So definitely a keeper of a set!

Happy crafting!

Use them or lose them #3

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

This stamp set is one I wanted immediately on seeing it but have hardly used at all… so thought it was time to get it out and have a go.  Here I present Work of Art stamps.

My first thought was to make something quite graphic so I grabbed the black card blanks and some scraps of coloured cardstock and black ink.

I stamped the sentiment first and then stamped the falling hearts around it.  I corner rounded two corners and stuck it down.  Then decided it needed some bling… so gold stickles came out to play.

Inside the card and envelope needed doing too, so chose the colour of the cardstock and made each of them like this…

Not exactly difficult cards … perfectly simple actually.  I am still undecided about the value of these stamps but going to stick with them for the moment and see if inspiration strikes again when I grab them next time.

Happy crafting!
