You are a Work of Art

 If  you are looking for the most versatile set in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, check out Work of Art.  I think this stamp set will be my new go-to set for the next few months.  I've already made 5 totally different cards using this stamp set.  And I'll be sharing them with you for the next 5 days.  Sound like a good idea to you?  Hope so, 'cuz that's what I'll be doing.  So here's the first one. 

Stamps:  Work of Art
Ink:  Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie,
Paper:  Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla, and Pumpkin Pie
Accessories:   Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches, 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, Lg Corner Rounder(ret), Very Vintage Designer Buttons, Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Brights Candy Dots, and Glue Dots
This card was so much fun to make!  The flower is made from a squiggle stamp that is stamped repeatedly.  Just keep one end of the stamp centered and stamp around in a circle.  How simple is that!  Depending which end of the stamp is in the center, you get a totally different looking flower.  With stamping the other end out, the flower has a very feathery look to it. 

The stamp set has several different sentiment to it, so I didn't need a separate sentiment set to make this card.  Easy peasy when it's all right there in the set for you!

The only really addition to the card were the different punches used.  I chose two of the card colors to make a layered butterfly for the corner where it looked a  little bare.  Butterflies are always a nice addition.  I also added a Razzleberry scallop of cardstock underneath the button accent to make it stand out more.  And that's about it.  Quick and simple, but fun with an artistic flair from the loosely stamped flower.

Thanks for sliding by to see what I've been stamping today.  I'll have another card for you tomorrow that uses the same set with totally different look to it.  Come on back and check it out.  See you soon,     Sharon              
ps - Happy Father's Day,  honey!
