It Starts With Art

There’s a stamp set and coordinating dies in the new catalog that is totally designed for the crafter in us all.  The “It Starts With Art Bundle” features a stamp set with the same name and coordinating Arts & Crafts Dies and is available at a 10% savings when purchased in the bundle.  But wait…there’s more…there is an entire suite of products, “Follow Your Art Suite” that coordinate with the bundle.  The Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper has fun crafty prints, there’s an embossing folder called Button Button that…you guessed it…embosses button images, there’s a fun package of Washi Tape that even has images of the Stampin’ Up! logo, a tiny shipping box to fill with fun treats and a fabulous Embellishment Kit.

I added texture on the Blueberry Bushel cardstock with the Button Button Embossing Folder and layered that on the Seaside Spray card base.  Look closely above and below the Follow Your Art DSP….do you see the ribbon?  I cut a piece of the Seaside Spray Linen Scalloped Ribbon in half the long way and tucked one piece under the top of the DSP and the other under the lower edge.  Next I stamped the bottle in Blueberry Bushel ink and colored over the image with Wink of Stella.  By painting it right over the ink, it pulls a little of the ink with it and that’s how I got a light blue sprkle to the bottle.  The sentiment embellishment was created by stamping the “scallop image two times and cutting it out with the Arts & Crafts Dies.  I then stamped the sentiment on one piece and layered them on top of one another with one piece vertical and one piece horizontal.  Both the sentiment and bottle are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Good Man stamp set for Father’s Day

Wanting a little feel of nature, I went with the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper and used the print with various shades of leaves.  I layered the DSP in Old Olive and added a piece of ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack. The old Olive piece was then layered on a piece of Mossy Meadow and then on the Balmy Blue card base. The main image of the guy in a beach chair was stamped with memento Ink on Whisper White and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  After coloring the image with Stampin’ Write Markers in Light Balmy Blue, Old Olive Combo and Light Crumb Cake I popped the circle off the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the sentiments, also from A Good Guy stamp set, I stamped “It’s Your Day on Balmy Blue and punched it out with the 1-1/8” scallop Circle Punch, then popped it up with Dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped “Relax Your Way” on a 3/8″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Whisper White that I cut into a banner.
