Clockworks Trio

At the recent Perth Heartfelt Stampin' Event we received a free stamp set "Clockworks".  When I saw this in our Annual Catalogue I was very excited, oh the possibilities. I was even more excited when I found out that it was the free stamp set that we would be receiving at the Stampin' Event.

I have made a trio of vintage cards using the colour scheme of Midnight Muse, Naturals Ivory, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.

The first card I made to enter into the Mojo Monday Challenge #257 based on the following sketch (I just love this sketch):

I have used the new Comfort Cafe DSP and the Neutrals DSP Stack for this card. 

Peak of the inside of the card.

The second card I made using the stamp set "En Francais" as a background stamp, this is my favourite go to stamp set for background stamping.  I added some bakers twine which I inked with the Early Espresso to tone it into the same shades as the card.

This card has been featured on My Crafty Picks here.

The third card was made by stamping on Naturals Ivory in Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Midnight Muse and then inking with Crumb Cake over the piece and then Early Espresso around the edges.  I used the Bitty Banners Framelits for the sentiment.

  11. Fell in love with Clockworks at the Tacoma Regionals and had toyed with the idea of getting it, but just put it on my wish list. After seeing your fabulous creations it has now moved to the top of the list and will be on my next order. Truly great masculine cards, a great mixture of stamps and backgrounds. I can choose no favourite from among your cards, they are all simply awesome! TFS.
