I love how easy it is to look artistic with the brush stroke images in Stampin’ Up!’s Work of Art stamp set. This Thank You card came together quickly and uses some of the new 2014-2016 In Colours. While I do like Stampin’ Up!’s Clear Mount and love the Photopolymer Stamps, there’s something about a wood mount stamp that I still tend to gravitate towards. Maybe it’s the way I create (messily…LOL) or the fact that I’m a bit of a visual person (I need to see things to figure out how I can use them), but the majority of my stamps are still wood mount. That being said, the Work of Art stamp set is like a tricky puzzle to fit back into the case!!!!! So for your viewing reference, I direct you to my Instagram account, where I’ve posted an image of the set in the case. I like to say it’s for YOUR benefit, but really, it’s all about me. I knew that once I got it in there, I would have to take a photo so I would remember.
Happy Fourth of July to my American family and friends! I love how the first week of July is preoccupied by patriotic holidays here in North America, and of course, in our household, today is more fondly known as my son’s birthday – so HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my _favourite_ son. (I only have one, but I think that’s beside the point). This time last year was spent marching in two different parades in the US as part of the Burlington Teen Tour Band – this year, it’s a day of relaxation. Hope you have a good day!!
