Innovative Stamp Creations New Release -- Day 3

Today the Creative Architects will be showcasing the following set from Innovative Stamp Creations.

Mini Ledger

This line is ideal for Artist Trading Cards or when you need a quick Mini-Card!  You can even accent the pages on a small Mini Book too! The tab image is super easy to use as you’ll see in the sample below.  You can use almost any of the phrases on the inside of the tab to accent your card, etc!

Betsy asked us to create a small set of 3 X 3 cards in our favorite color palette.  Well, my very fav combo is black, RED, and white, but lately I seem to be using these colors in many combinations:  pretty in pink, river rock, celery, and cool caribbean.  I first stamped the mini-ledger image on the cardstock papers of choice, cut out and then matted in black to make them 'pop'.  I finished them off by stamping a small script stamp on the right side of the ledger, an image also included in the set.  I had intended for them to go on the card straight up and down, but the minute I put the image askew, well, I knew that was how they would stay.  I then pierced a bit, diagonally on the sides of the ledger panels.  I stamped the tab stamp in my colors of choice and then stamped the sentiment inside each.  I cut out and attached them with two brads.  I knew that I wanted to use these Prima roses which had been 'burning a hole' on my worktable.  I then went to my Beautiful Butterflies III set and stamped the smaller butterfly on white cardstock.  Colored them with my Copics, and then popped the wings up with pop dots for a 3-D effect.  AND.....that is my story!!!

Now check out the creations of the rest of the Architencts by using the following links.....
