Greetings, Friends! As I mentioned the other day, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Stampin' Up Catalog Premiere event last Monday in Hartford, CT. Besides the fun of seeing all the new products, getting together with other demonstrators and going home with a new catalog before it was released, another perk was a free stamp set, Work of Art. I must admit that this is not one of the stamp sets that would have jumped out at me in the catalog, but after seeing all the gorgeous samples they showed us I was in love.
My CAS creation using Work of Art was inspired by the fabulous sketch at Retro Sketches and the soft, feminine color combo at ColourQ. Though I was so tempted to do a floral with these delicious colors, I wanted to show off the new stamp set. Besides, between Easter, Spring and Mother's Day, I've kind of been on flower overload! Sage Shadow is a color long retired and I really don't have anything similar,so I chose to substitute Coastal Cabana, which I stamped off twice for the background.
I used my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the chevrons evenly lined up. I stamped off the Strawberry Slush and Pear Pizzazz also, for a softer shade of these colors.
