featured set – best of times

This stamp set is the newest set to join my A|S stamp set collection… it’s called BEST OF TIMES and it is from the A Muse|Studio 2012 Holiday Catalog…

This set includes tree tops and trunks that you can mix and match to create whimsical tree images in whatever colors you choose. Also included in this set are various sentiments, so its a good value for the price at $19.99.

Here is a closer look at each of the cards I made above trying to showcase some of the tree shapes and different ideas for card designs…

Card base is lichen card stock. Other colors include pumpkin, french roast and wasabi. I used the tiny scallop border, french roast baker’s twine and foam tape. I also used a sponge dauber to ink up the image before stamping it to give it a two-tone coloring.

In this example, I used the same colors of ink and card stock, I just swapped out the baker’s twine for some french roast 5/8″ satin ribbon.

All three cards incorporate very simple card designs with coordinating colors. {I left the sentiments off at this point because these cards would make lovely Thanksgiving cards and also wonderful autumn birthday cards so I want to leave my options open.} This stamp set offers lots of great ideas for seasonal card-making. I’m sure I will incorporate these images into more of my designs as the weeks and months pass.

  1. I always liked that set but I like it even more after seeing your beautiful designs! I can picture the elongated trees passing as leaves if you didn’t ink up the full trunk on the image and some uses for the circle design as well. Happy Halloween Kris!
