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,
