This card started with the yellow swoosh from Work of Art that was left over from a previous card making session that didn’t work out the way I planned. All of a sudden, I had a burst of inspiration, and these cards came together in minutes. I love the mix of Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight, and the bold pop of black contrasts beautifully. It’s amazing what can be created with scraps!
This card started from scraps left on my work table, the piece of Whisper White stamped with the ‘swoosh’ from Work of Art in Flirty Flamingo and the large leaf branch from the Flourish Thinlet in Kraft cardstock. I added another branch, and two flowers from the Flourish Thinlets, as well as the long chain. Popped up the focal point with doubled-up Dimensionals. Moral of the story: leave leftovers from one card out for inspiration!
The second card of thanks for our service veteran uses the Work of Art stamp set again, but in a totally different way. It’s absolutely amazing what that set can do. Add a few mini stars (from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack) punched from the silver Glimmer Paper and Basic Grey card stock and a sentiment, and the card is ready to go. Simple doesn’t necessarily mean boring!
Work of Art (134111 Wood or 134114 Clear) is one of THE most versatile sets I’ve ever seen. Besides using various elements from the set for abstract purposes, those same elements can be used to make “things”. Here’s my take on a patriotic flag. We have a family friend who is going on the Badger Honor Flight in September. And one of the things this wonderful organization does (besides sending a deserving veteran to Washington DC to see the memorials that honor their service) is to collect personal thank you cards that the veteran reads on the trip. This is the first of three cards our veteran will receive from us.
