On my card for today, I wanted to make an older set look new again. Fresh Cuts is a set of 5 stamps including one larger background image stamp (see my main image).
The way I made this set new again is by using two of the new In Colors - Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry. I am a lover of all things modern as you may recall. This set isn't a set I'd normally consider my style. However, I love that you can change the overall look of an image simply with ink and paper.
Did you know? You can see my creations listed by stamp set. Along the left sidebar, simply click the set you're interested in. You'll then see all cards I've created using that same set.
OOOOO and AAAHHH ... do I ever love this stamp called Medallion!
The Mojo Monday sketch challenge is to blame for this stunning layout. OMGoodness, I am in love with this card. I also drew upon a fellow Demonstrator, Gina - she used Real Red & White on her fun card. Check her out over at Cards by Gina.
This card base is 5" x 5" so you can get an idea of just how B-I-G this Medallion image is.
Imagine this image used as:
Stamped in Versamark on colored cardstock
Covered in glitter
The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
I added a large black grommet in the center, layered on top of it a white button from the Button Latte collection, and finally disassembled a Fire Rhinestone brad as the "icing on the cake". It fit perfectly snug in the button's center - I didn't even need adhesive! My sentiment is from the Hope Happens set. I love how this set seems like it was meant to be inked in different colors. I wanted to emphasize the word heart so I inked that text in Real Red using my Stampin' Write Marker.
I love it ... but more importantly, what do YOU think? Feel free to leave me a comment... I really enjoy hearing from you.
