With just a little time left to work on cards this week, I just had to do one more. A new shipment arrived at my door today with a new stamp set, Clockworks. I really thought this would be fun to use for making some masculine cards. I really thought that it could be used for many occasions, but I realize now that I don't have any of the right salutations for the front of my card for those occasions. I kept thinking of things like I'd use this for an anniversary, for a "long time friend", graduation or retirement. I have no stamps for those occasions. This is the time that I wish I had MDS, so I could print up some of the things like that. Well, I can always print it on my computer, but that just does not seem right, when you're stamping a card.
I played around with the colors from the Nacho Average Challenge #42 to use Midnight Muse, Old Olive, and Soft Suede. Just right for this card. I used the layout from the Techno Stampers Challenge 259, and then the Papercraft Star's Challenge 141 was to "use a clock or watch" in your project. How timely is that?
I could not wait to play with this new stamp set, and hope to get more time soon. Right now, I need to keep my new manicure clean, and stay away from the ink. I have a wedding to go to today.
