Never minds sixes and sevens, I'm all at tens and elevens at the moment trying to get things done! So I thought I'd show you a card I made a while ago with one of the most useful stamp sets ever, Easy Events. Come and have a look:
I love making cards with tiles on them and the square punches are so useful for this. Stamp an image several times and punch out what you want to appear in your tile with the smaller punch, then punch out a larger square to mat it onto - how quick and simple is that?!
I've kept my background neutral with Natural Ivory and textured Very Vanilla card stocks and added the splash of colour with gorgeous Peach Parfait. I love the way Stampin' Up provide card stock, ink and markers that match - it makes it so easy to coordinate coloured images with the rest of the card. I coloured the flowers in by squashing the lid of my Peach Parfait ink pad to make a pool of ink appear on the inside of the lid, then picking up the ink with a blender pen. The dots have been added with a Cajun Craze marker. Peach Parfait is only going to be available until the end of September along with the other 2010-2012 in-colours, so if you love it, you'll need to order it soon!
Easy Events contains eight images that cover many occasions with sentiments attached but I've separated my sentiments to make them even more versatile! I love the font they've been designed in.
Here's another version of the card, this time with Pool Party as the splash of colour.
