Welcome to my first Artisan Wednesday Wow post as a new member of the Artisan Design Team 2013! You can expect to start getting two posts from me on Wednesdays – my normal Freshly Made Sketches card and now an Artisan Wednesday Wow project. Every Wednesday the whole team will be posting inspiration for you in the form of a blog hop. Ever since I got my first box of goodies from Stampin’ Up I have been looking forward to this! Didn’t you love Jeanna’s project??
I thought that the perfect way to start was by showing you a new product, Undefined. What is Undefined? It is a stamp carving set where you can design anything you want. How awesome is that??!! Now I had to decide what to carve. I decided to start pretty simple and use a basic shape. After consulting with my 10 year old son, we opted for a cool triangle since they are so on trend. I drew this shape and he told me that one side should be opened up. Smart boy!! I traced it that way onto some paper with a pencil and then laid the paper onto the stamp to transfer it. Then we started carving. Here is the result:
Ok, it isn’t cleaned off very well here. My son has been using it to stamp on all kinds of things (yes, I will have pictures to show you in the future). I also made a second stamp (another shape) and left the basic rubber in more of a rectangle shape around the stamp, carving away the edges instead of cutting them off. This is so much fun because you can really make it how you like!
For my card, I stamped the triangles in Soft Sky, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight onto Naturals Ivory card stock and cut them out. I stamped the sentiment from Four You (love this font) and added some details from Gorgeous Grunge. Then I popped up the triangles on Dimensionals and added some Basic Pearls.
Remember when I said the triangles were trendy? Well, Moxie Fab World has a Trendy Triangles Challenge so I am going to link this up there.
Now on with the hop. I know you will love Mercedes’ project today (and of course the ones from the rest of the team!). See you later today with my Freshly Made Sketches post.
