Tied together by friendship

by Aimes


Happy Friday Eve! It's Aimes here today with a card in which I gave some inky love to the older, but still fabulous Modern Beadwork stamp set.


I needed to create a card for a dear friend of mine who is about to embark on an adventure abroad and this stamp set caters for it perfectly. The sentiment inspired me to add twine to give it a literal meaning as well as making a fun finishing touch to my stamped friendship bracelet. :)

Friendship close up

The card is going to be from two of us and so for that extra friendship bonus point, I used our favourite colours and even blended them for the word ‘friendship' to echo the special bond we have.

I had so much fun designing this friendship bracelet and the Modern Beadwork stamp set provides so many options for creating your own designs. You can even use the individual elements alone as a focal point. Mr Gray likes to refer to this stamp set as the 8-bit stamp set which completely suits his geeky nature and adds yet another style I can use this stamp set for!

I hope that today's card inspires you to enjoy giving some inky love to an older stamp set and seeing what wonderful designs you can create using it. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thank you so much, Andrea! I guess it’s a coincidence that as a trio of friends our favourite colours co-ordinate so well. ;)
