Hey guys! It’s Wednesday (and a total bonus day, too!), so I have a One Set Wednesday post to share with you… sort of.
See, you remember how I laid out the rules that every week I was going to use only one set to create about 4 cards?
Yeah… not today.
So here’s the rundown… usually, I have one set to work with – chosen by the random number generator – and I create 3 all-occasion cards, and if possible, one holiday card.
But not conducive to making a lot of cards without them all sort of looking the same with a different sentiment. Which is totally fine… but not the point of my One Set Wednesday posts, right? I want to take my sets out of the box a bit…
So, because I wanted to work on a few other things this week, I thought I’d cut today’s post a bit short, since this set is sort of limiting in a way. So instead, I have two cards to share with you!
Now, don’t let me lead you to believe this set isn’t worth having in your collection… because it IS. I use it a *lot*, and it’s so much fun. The scale of the tickets work really well on layouts – you can see how I used one here. Plus, they’re such a fun way to add sentiments to your cards.
So for my first card, I used the set the way it was intended – to create a ticket to use as my sentiment.
I put my beloved Crate Paper goodies to work for this card… Then when I stamped my ticket, I rolled it in a darker shade after I stamped the lighter one, to give it a faded, aged effect. And, looking at this photo – I think I need to adjust where the ticket is sitting – don’t you think?
For my next card, I wanted to do something out of the box, and create a card that didn’t use a ticket at all.
I took the frame stamp that is included in the set, and stamped a background with it, using a little heart image from the set to complete it.
I also used one of the sentiments from the set, and selectively inked it, so I could stamp it into a smaller frame (from PTI).
So that’s it for me today… it’s a shorter post for a Wednesday… but I didn’t want to exclude this set from my list. It was sort of like a step up from using a sentiment set, so I didn’t put the same pressure on myself to create as much with it! I hope I still gave you some ideas, though!
