May Tour de Freaks


Woohoo!!!  New products in the house!!!  Well, I’ve actually had Work of Art in my studio since the catalog reveal.  But, my preorder DID come in today!  I have lots of new toys to play with!  First…you’ve probably come from the blog of Heidi Boos…aren’t her projects fun?  We have 12 stops on the tour this month, so make sure to continue along the tour until you get back here!  Our theme this month is products using the Preorder Items demos could purchase this month!


For my Tour projects, I made 3 different cards using the Work of Art stamp set!  Here’s the first one.  I made 25 of these for the Stampin’ Up! Cruise Swap!  I was happy with the color combination of Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake and Basic Black!

Here’s the second one I made for the tour.  This one I used Watercolor Paper for the background and did the rainbow of colors with the long swash image in Work of Art stamp set.  Colors were Island Indigo, Coastal Cabana, Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz.  I added some punched Petite Flowers of Daffodil Delight with Gold Sequin Centers.  Hooray for Today is from Geometrical stamp set.

Next I decided to use the Work of Art stamp set to make a sun!  After it was finished, I noticed that it would make a great Sunflower with a brown center instead of the yellow!  I’ll have to try that next!  I did use the new Hello Honey Ink for my sun, stamping off to get the lighter colors.  The 1 3/4″ circle is punched from new Lullaby Designer Paper!  I added a little white designer button and White Bakers Twine.

OK…what do you think?  Hope you like them all!  Next stop of the tour is Judy DiScipio.  I know you’ll love her fabulous projects, too!  Thanks for stopping by!

Love what you did with the Work of Art set, Connie! You are so creative with the different flowers and such you have come up with for this set. My favorite is the middle watercolor project. That is so yummy!
