I chose the stamp set called Elementary Elegance! I have to admit that I LOVED this stamp set in the catalog and then struggled to use it! After I just sat down and started working, it came pretty easy! I think some of my trouble was that I have seen this set used the the fantastically, marvelous Everyday Enchantment DSP and I really wanted to do something different. So I had a self imposed challenge with this set. I am confident that I have succeed in this challenge!
For my first project I created a birthday card. I used this card with my club last week and they really enjoyed it!
When you get this stamp set, the inside of the frame has a piece of rubber that you remove so you don't get any extra marks where you don't want them. KEEP THAT PIECE OF RUBBER!!! This card was created with that piece of rubber. I stamped with all the purples that Stampin' Up! sells. I love purple so this was made for me!
My next card I really stepped out on the colors but I LOVE the way this one turned out! Very unusual from what I've seen done with this set! (Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places! :) )
My last project is a Box in a Bag. These have been around for a while but I had never made one before so I thought this was a great time to give it a whirl! It was so much fun, I will be making these again!
I will be posting all the recipes and directions on Monday, so come on back, ya hear!
Thanks for taking the time to see what I have created. Now you are off to Kim's blog: Stitchin' n Stampin' to see what she has done with this same stamp set! Even more ideas! Yeah! Or you can go to Katherine's blog and see what she created with the Designer Frames embossing folders.
