Happy Sunday and welcome to the second blog tour for the Creation Station! Thanks so much for joining us. If you came by on the last one you know that we focus on one stamp set and an accessory every other Sunday to give you inspiration! If this is your first time with us welcome! If you are following the Tour you have arrived here from the very clever Deborah Smart’s blog. How was that for inspiration?! I hope that I can give you some ideas on how to use our featured stamp set Work of Art and accessory Bakers Twine. The post has lots of pictures that I have taken during the process of making the projects so sit back relax and enjoy!
My first project is a card and it’s packed full of new goodies! I used my new favorite color Lost Lagoon* for my base. The background is created with a piece of Blushing Bride that I stamped in Blushing Bride with the longest stroke from the Work of Art* Stamp Set. I used my Gird Paper to help me line it it all up.
Next up is a Tea Lace Paper Doily that I brayed in Lost Lagoon*. I went over it a few times to make it nice and dark to help my heart in the middle stand out a bit more.
The smaller heart is stamped in Lost Lagoon* using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure they are nice and even. The greeting is from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set and is stamped in Versa-Mark and heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
I used the Hearts Collection Framelits to cut it out and a piece of Brushed Gold Card Stock. I used the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce around the edge.
Across the bottom are 5 hearts that I stamped in Lost Lagoon* and punched out with the Small Heart Punch. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them and the large heart to the card.
Finally I used the Owl Builder Punch to punch out a tiny heart from some Blushing Bride to go in the middle of the greeting. I have to say that Lost Lagoon* goes really well with so many different colors. I think it looks quite snazzy paired with Blushing Bride and some Gold thrown in for good measure!
Next up is a card again using the Work of Art Stamp Set for a Background and my favorite little fish! This card starts off with a base of Basic Black and the background is Whisper White embossed with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The background for the goodies are the zig zags from the Work of Art Stamp Set, stamped in Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon*, Pool Party and Soft Sky.
I backed it with more Basic Black and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My fish is from the By the Tide Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Silver Foil Sheet punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a standard hole punch make the bubbles.
The greeting is from the May Paper Pumpkin Kit and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on adhesive cork sheet and cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits.
I really love using cork sheet, it cuts nicely with our Framelits and takes ink pretty well. The stamps that come with the Paper Pumpkin kits are some of my favorites too!
My final card uses our featured accessory Bakers Twine. The base for this card is Soft Sky and the background is s piece of So Saffron that is embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from Sale-A-Bration that is in the new Catalog! I used the Something for Baby Stamp Set* to stamp the safety pins and heat embossed them in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, I think it gives a nice real look to them.
They are cut out with the Baby’s First Framelits*, love matching Framelits don’t you?! Next up I cut out a piece of Soft Sky with the same Framelits and used the Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack* to pierce around the edge. A needle and White Bakers Twine sew the twine through the piercing.
My greeting is from the Baby, We’ve Grown Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog, it’s carried over! I stamped it in Soft Sky and punched it out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold all of the elements to the card. I think that the sewn Bakers Twine adds so much along with the silver safety pins. A fun card to welcome in a new little one!
And that’s a wrap on my second Creation Station post! I really hope that you enjoyed the projects and sneak peeks at some of the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog* goodies!
