I'm back again with sneak peeks of new Stampin' Up stamp sets. This garden set caught my eye as soon as I saw it. The flowers are a mixture of open lines and solids that I think will be really versatile.
I started with just that rose flower and built out the card design from there. I thought the yellow would contrast nicely with the red so I pulled out that ink pad and just started stamping. After a few false starts, I had the following background design. The red flower was then die cut and it's actually attached with dimensional tape to lift it above the yellow flowers a bit. I wanted to provide a bit of visual depth with the design. The sentiment came last. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was too sweet not to add to the flowers.
Of course with the sentiment being the last added, it is the most easily changed out. Since I like the design so much, I may try it for other occasions too.
I then took a completely different direction for this next creation.
I really enjoy creating party supplies. It makes me smile to think many of my items grace the tables at parties and other events.
I've always been a fan of turquoise and it can be used for so many occasions that I thought I'd give these a try in that color. I like it ~ gives them a sort of tropical feel.
I do have new stamps from other companies but I'm still having fun with the new Stampin' Up stamps. I'm not sure what I'll have for you tomorrow - will have to wait and see where the inspiration takes me.
