As the end of the current catalogue fast approaches I have been looking at those stamp sets that I have neglected in recent months. Today I thought I would show you guys a set of note cards using Work of Art. This is one of the stamp sets I picked in my Starter kit almost 2 years ago (It’s my second SU birthday next week! so excited!!!) but I haven’t used it as much recently, time to change that!
These are so super simple to do. I used the paint strokes stamp from Work of Art and inked it up, and stamped it four times down a piece of Whisper White card stock without re-inking it. This creates a great gradient effect, and is a great demonstration of the number of times you can generation stamp with Stampin’ Up! inks. I selected four colours: Island Indigo, So Saffron, Old Olive and Watermelon Wonder. The So Saffron didn’t work quite as well as the others, but I still love the card
The sentiment is also from Work of Art, and is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.
These cards would make a great gift, and so I also created this awesome box to hold them and their envelopes too!
Box Base – Early Espresso Card stock – 25.5 x 16 cm
Score on the long side at 2, 18.5 and 20.5 cm
Score on the short side at 2 and 14 cm
The lid is created with a piece of Window Sheet – 20.7 x 16.2 cm
Scored on all for sides at 2 cm.
When working with Window Sheet you need to score repeatedly, to ensure a crease it formed, but it looks wonderful when its finished
The box is completed with a knot of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and a bow in Old Olive Bakers Twine
