Sneak Peek – Work of Art (2 of 4)

Sneak Peek Work of Art 2

Happy hump day everyone!  I hope you’re having a great week so far.  I got my order for 50 Bridal Showers invitations completed and in the mail yesterday.  WooHoo!  I will post a pic of the invitation on Friday.  I hope you’ll come back and check it out.

Today’s post is a great subtle color combination made with Sahara Sand, Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding.  This is the second of four designs we made with the Work of Art stamp set at our BZB New Catalog Stamp Together.  This design is clean, simple and easy to recreate for any occasion not just Thank You.  It starts with a Sahara Sand Base.  Next stamp with three of the different brush stroke shaped stamps in Sahara Sand, Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding.  Then stamp “Thank You” from Another Thank You in StaZon Jet Black.  Finally we added a punched banner in Dotted Pool Party from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack and topped it with a tiny Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow.  The designers are asked to keep the designs simple but wow so it is easy for a demonstrator or stamper to recreate at home for themselves or classes.  There are a number of ways they can be stepped up.  This design, for example, you could add a Pool Party layer between the Base and Face.  Then switch the Designer Series Paper banner for Silver Glimmer or Gold Glimmer, whichever tickles your fancy.  Oooh…….you could also heat emboss the “Thank You” in Basic Black Embossing Powder!!!  OMGosh, that would just put it over the top.  I want to thank Meredith Nelson for creating another wonderful design for our BZB New Catalog Stamp Together.
