I was browsing through the new Stampin’ Up catalogue (my wish list is HUGE!) and saw a gorgeous card using their woodgrain stamp and I wished I had thought of the idea first. It was so simple but so effective. If you have the Australian catalogue, the card I am referring to can be found on page 75. The very next stamp of mine which happened to catch my eye was…yes, you guessed it…a woodgrain stamp. I have the Designer Woodgrain S5208 stamp from Hero Arts. I was toying with creating something similar and next thing I know I’ve gone in a completely different direction. lol Isn’t that often the way?
So today, I have made two super quick and simple cards. The background is, of course, the Designer Woodgrain from Hero Arts and the other stamped images are from Paper Smooches (the Calico and Salutations sets).
Here they are a little closer:
1/ Thanks so much
2/ Thinking of you
It would be so quick to make up a whole set of cards like this…plus they are fun to make!
Update: I am going to enter one of these cards in the Case Study #153 challenge blog thanks to the very kind suggestion of my sweet and super talented friend, C. Thanks, C!
The inspiration for this challenge is the following card from the uber-talented Jennifer McGuire.
Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend!
the flowers look amazing against the woodgrain! I ordered from the new catalogue too 🙂 It’s one of my favourite years! Thanks for playing with us over on CASE Study 🙂
Thanks so much, Maureen! I really enjoyed playing along. 🙂
Kylie, these are stunning cas cards! The colourful band across the woodgrain *works* perfectly! Eye-catching! I have the Calico stamp set, and you’ve inspired (again, as you always do!!) more ideas for using it! Pretty!! It totally fits the current Case Study #153 challenge. The inspiration photo has a wreath of flowers, but the entries so far show all make and manner of ‘flowery concoctions’! Look at me: marketing you once again, but…creativity and talent ought to be showcased whenever and wherever possible! Have a super day!
Thanks, C! I might do as you suggest and enter it in the CASE Study competition. 🙂 Thanks for the heads up. 🙂
