I love when you get a chance to see how versatile a stamp set can be, not only in the different types of occasions that you can use the set for, but also when you can see it being used for a “girly” card as well as a “guy” card. Well, thanks to convention this year, I was able to get some cool ideas for a set I had totally overlooked – Lacy and Lovely!
See, I’m not normally a doily and lace stamp set kind of girl, so I skimmed past that section of the catalog, but after continually seeing swaps that made me go, “what stamp set is that??” and them all being from Lacy and Lovely, I have to reconsider my stance. 🙂
Exhibit A: the vintage card
card designed by Sue McQuiston
Sadly, my photo doesn’t properly show off the sponging and ivory/brown distressing the card, but you get the idea!
Exhibit B: the guy card
card designed by Daleen Pinder
I love the clean and crisp style of this card and the colors are bold too. I think this totally works for a guy even though I initially thought that stamp set was all lacy.
Plus, I love that this stamp set comes with sentiments as well as the element images. I so love having a variety of sentiments to choose from.
Anyway, I thought this was a fun example of how colors and techniques can really make a big difference in how the same images come across.
