You are a Fabulous Work of Art

Easel Work of Art Jill Birthday 2014This week was my BFF Jill’s birthday, and I had so much fun making this card for her.

Jill is one of the most creative people I know.  She is one of the most generous and giving people also, so a special card was in order.  

Goal was to embody creativity, artistic expression, use primary colors (Jill’s faves), and show lots of love.  I like how it turned out.

For my crafting, card-making, and StampinUp friends, this card featured the following SU stamps: Hardwood, Work of Art, Banner Blast.
The chalkboard sentiment is white heat embossed.

This might also make a great teacher appreciation or end of school year card.

Here are a couple more featuring the new “Work of Art” stamp. It’s a little more abstract than I am used to working with, but fun to break out of the usual.

For this one below, I used some of the new muted shades of Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, and Hello Honey stamped in a masked circle, then heat embossed the new blended bloom flower stamp with gold, dabbed with Gorgeous Grunge and added a few sequins.

For this chevron and heart one, I added some blackberry bliss and tangelo twist and blinged it up with a couple of rhinestones.

And finally, I love the brushstroke look of the Work of Art stamp and how simple yet unique it can make a card.  Gold embossing “glammed” it up.

That’s some playing around in my craft room at … Life In Between.

Cheers and Hugs,




I love hearing from you - hope you'll drop me a line
