smARTworks news

Our next smARTworks Tea Party OVAL challenge is hosted by Peggy Lamb! She invites you to participate by making your card's focal layer an OVAL.

Enjoy free shipping on your "rubber only" order from smARTworks this month! If you order supplies with your stamps, Susan will split the difference, and pay half your shipping for you. (US orders only)

Here's a smARTworks card to share...I had some pieces of another project (OVAL) that I was working on and thought I'd play with these pieces. I'm always fascinated by the color palette that Aija at Kerttulin Paja uses on her cards, so I thought I'd try something brown/vintage distressed (not that that's really out of my box, but hey...).

The focal image is a small piece of the main stamp of "Holly Birds" - the whole image didn't quite stamp the way I wanted it to, so I salvaged these pieces of it. No mistakes, right? Just opportunities for embellishment. I used a circle punch, and trimmed out the second bird. The saying is from a cutie little set called "Merry and Bright." Sweet and simple!

Have a great day!
