Well I Promised Something Made From A Stamp Set From The Mini So Here It Is

As you know a couple of posts ago I promised to play with some stamps out of the new  mini catalogue.  Well I finally got a change.  I had to make some calander pages for our stamp club that we hold here each month so I decided to make them using the stamp set called SENSE OF TIME (116885) on page 16.  I just love this set, I had to have it as soon as I seen it in the Mini Catalogue.  You can adapt it in so many different ways, I like collage stamping a lot so I can see myself using the stamp set in that way very soon as well.  But with this (as I had to do 12 the same) I decided just to go fairly simple.
So here is the top of the calander page that I made, very plain but elegant (that is just my opinion though).
The Base Card is Very Vanilla
On the right hand side I stamped the cogs in Creamy Caramel Ink & The verse in Chocolate Chip Ink.  I just love these colours together.
The Frame around the clock is Creamy Caramel Cardstock
on this I have stamped the cogs & verse in Chocolate Chip Ink
The clock itself is stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink as well
I used my great stampamajig for placing the wording on the Creamy Caramel Cardstock as not all the verse fitted.  I had to leave the author of the quote off, who by the way is Bonnie Friedman.  The stampamajig makes life so easy.
Well I hope you like what I did with this stamp set so far.  No doubt I will have a little more time to play on the weekend & get to use some other stamps from the mini or maybe even come up with something else with this same stamp set..  So watch this space.
