Awesomely Artisitc!

Hello - I am sharing with you today my version of a card I saw somewhere on my Pinterest travels using the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.

I spend ages hopping around Pinterest looking for ideas and inspiration - have you seen my Pinterest board?  I have 117 boards full of Stampin' Up! inspiration and I post all of my makes there too.  It can be found here

Both cards are basically the same - the only difference is the colour of the base card and the ink used.

Here is the first card; it has a Crumb Cake Note Card as a base and I have used Tip Top Taupe ink:

I followed the theme through on the inside too with a little light stamping and some ink around the edges:

Here is the second card; this time on a Whisper White note card with Smokey Slate ink:

I stamped on the inside again but for some reason could not get a very good photo (sorry) and this time I did not ink around the edges:

Here are both the finished cards with their matching envelopes:

This is a lovely stamp set and one that I think will be very useful for lots of different occasions. I like both cards for different reasons but, I think the Smokey Slate version is my favourite as it looks fresh and a little cleaner!  What do you think?  Please leave a comment to let me know which is your favourite.
