Timeless Textures just has to be one of my favorite stamp sets, it can be used to give texture for another focal point or can feature on its own – just as I have today.
This is another in my Sweet and Simple series where I have set myself a little challenge using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal. Then you find the basics such as stock, herbs and spices etc are ‘pantry’ items and it turns out that the meal was made with a whole host of ‘hidden’ stuff we did not know about.
Card base: 11 x 5 1/2 Thick Whisper White Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Smoky Slate Card
Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4 Whisper White Card
Layer 3: 3 1/8 x 2 1/8 Whisper White Card
Ink Color: Archival Basic Grey and Smoky Slate.
The Smoky Slate 1/2″ Gingham ribbon is just perfect for this card – if the truth be known I chose the ribbon first then the colors for the card!
The ‘Hello’ is cut with the 1″ circle, layered onto Smoky Slate cut with the 1 1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch
My ‘pantry items’ are adhesive, Stampin’ Trimmer, Bone folder and Paper-Piercing tool, my aim is to create with 1 stamp set and some ink pads, 1 embellishment (other than paper or card) and an additional tool, probably a punch, well I did use 2 punches today but I still think I met my challenge.
