Crafting Forever

Good evening!  I'm back with another sneak peek from the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  Tonight's sneak peek features the new Crafting Forever stamp set.  This stamp set is filled with fun images and cute sentiments that are perfect to get your creativity flowing!  

Did you know that you can sell projects that you've made with Stampin' UP! copyrighted images?  In order to do so, you would need to use the © Stampin' UP! stamp on them.  Have questions on the angel policy?  Visit stampinup.com/angelpolicy for more information.

My card was created to look like a desk top workspace complete with a inspirational plaque. I think it turned out pretty cute!  The "desktop" was created using the gorgeous new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  This DSP stack has several different wooden textures and is so versatile!  It's perfect for just about any project.  

Here is a closeup of the brush cup.  To create the cup, the brush/cup image was stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a piece of Watercolor Paper.  Next, using the Watercolor Pencils, each image was carefully colored and then watercolored using an Aqua Painter.  

To create the inspirational plaque- I first stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point onto a piece of Watercolor Paper and cut it out using the Big Shot and the Layering Squares Framelits.  I then cut a frame from a Pacific Point scrap using the Big Shot and 2 layering squares.  The plaque was popped up using Stampin' Dimensional's and a hanger/bow was added to make the plaque look like a wall decoration.

How about those adorable little paper snips?  Way too stinkin' cute!  These lil' cuties were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Silver Foil sheet.  After they were fussy cut from the Silver Foil, I used the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to fill in the handles so that they resembled the Stampin' UP! Paper Snips.  

Overall- I think it came out super cute and I cannot wait to play with this set again soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
