My Open House on June 1st was another amazing turn out! I enjoyed chatting with everyone and the new format of the matching discount was a big hit...who doesn't love free stuff!
I had 2 make'n'takes using new stamps and colors that I kept simple since I wanted everyone that came to get a chance to make them.
Here's the first one:
Work Of Art
Colors: Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Punches: Pansy, Petite Petals, Flower from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Project Life Corner
Twine: Thick Baker's Twine, Linen Thread
Extras: Pearl Basic Jewels, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
The paint swoosh stamp in this set is awesome...just ink and stamp, then stamp again for the lighter shade without re-inking (stamped off once). I just used the 2 blues full strength and stamped off to get the 4 shades. The design was based on a card showed on the cruise. I just added the twine and flowers to the design since it needed some extra stuff :)
Here's the second one:
Bravo (Photopolymer set)
Colors: Sahara Sand, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Whisper White
Punches: Star from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack
Ribbon: 3/8" Stitched Satin
Extras: Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Moonlight Designer paper stack, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
Since the stamp set is photopolymer, I was able to curve the "So happy for you!" greeting on the inside. I just mounted it on the block that way.
And, just so you know, I'm in love with the new Blackberry Bliss which is one of the 2014-2016 In Colors...just sayin'.
