It Starts With Art

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | It Starts With Art

I don’t know about you, but I tend to get so excited about all the new products that come out with every catalogue that I forget about the ones I already have 😦 I’m trying to make a conscious effort this year to make sure I use my current supplies as well, so when a catalogue ends and items retire I’m not left in the shameful position of having a brand new, uninked stamp set(s) etc… in my collection 😉 So for today’s card I’m finally inking up the fun It Starts With Art stamp set from the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue 🙂

I’ve kept the layout for my card very simple today – another goal I’m trying to stick to and used a piece of the coordinating Follow Your Art DSP to create a colourful background. I stamped the pencil/marker image in Momento Black onto Whisper White cardstock and used my Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour them in and to create the line coming from  the end of each one (colours used will be in the Supply List).

I die cut this out with a stitched rectangle, layered it onto a piece of Coastal Cabana and popped it up on my card front with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the It Starts With Art stamp set and I inked it up using the same colours as the markers using Sponge Daubers to create a fun multi-coloured effect – its “artsy” you know 😉

I die cut this out with one of the Sending Flowers Dies and popped it up with dimensionals as well. The final touch was a couple of the felt embellishments from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit, these add a lovely texture and I love the stitching detail around the edges 🙂

I added some simple layers to finish off the inside and stamped the markers using the Sponge Daubers again to get a multi-coloured look. I haven’t used this technique for such a long time and it’s such a simple one to do, I really like the effect on sentiments and that every one will be a little different each time.

Well, I’ve inked up two whole stamps from this set now, so even if this stamp set retires when the current Annual Catalogue ends, I won’t have the shame of an unused stamp set – I’ll just have to try and get the others inky as well 😉
