Here's what I came up with:
The Seeing Spots set that I've used was the first ever stamp set I owned and I still love it and use it often! I stamped the biggest image first in Old Olive ink, then used markers to colour the other circles and stamp them individually. I wanted to use thread rather than ribbon, so I added a strip of my favourite Sweet Pea designer paper to balance out the design. The linen thread was coloured with an Old Olive marker and anchored by two indents made with a 1/4" circle punch.
Stamps: Seeing Spots, Happy Moments (sentiment)
Ink: Old Olive, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip
Card stock: Whisper White, Soft Suede
Other: Earth Elements markers, 1/4" circle punch, linen thread, Sweet Pea designer paper, corner rounder
Using my first set always makes me remember when I first started stamping. I had been invited to a Stampin' Up party and didn't really think I'd like it; but when I got there I was bowled over - I hadn't realised that stamping and card making could be so contemporary! Since then, I've learned a great deal, made many friends and loads of mistakes - but always had enormous fun.
If you're new to paper crafting, congratulations! You've picked a great hobby!
Hope you're having a great weekend!
