STAMPlorations Special Release Day 4

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's release week over at STAMPlorations. They are introducing 4 stamp sets perfect for Spring themed cards and more ...



Here are my DT pieces for DAY 4 featuring Sweetly designed by Shery aka Shery Russ Designs ...


The flowers are watercoloured, fuzzy cut and layered on a splatter and stamped background.


For my second card, I wanted the butterfly to take center stage hence I used the flowers to stamp my background, heat embossed and watercoloured my butterfly and finished off with a bold stamped sentiment and some gems. The rounded corner is a little retro giving a nod to the in-style from a few years ago.

Here is Shery's new set ...

STAMPlorations Special Release Day 3

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's release week over at STAMPlorations. They are introducing 4 stamp sets perfect for Spring themed cards and more ...


Here are my DT pieces for DAY 3 featuring Softly designed by Sherry aka Shery Russ Designs ...


Adding colour without colouring is the theme of my first card where I stamped the florals on a sponged rainbow coloured background and finished off with a gold embossed sentiment and a few sequins.


When first seeing the floral stamp from Softly, I envisaged it partially fuzzy cut off the edge and backed with a subtle background. Rather than colouring, I felt it could look rather elegant silver embossed with a white background ...

or a pink one adding subtle texture with tissue paper.


Here is Shery's new set ...

STAMPlorations Special Release Day2

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's release week over at STAMPlorations. They are introducing 4 stamp sets perfect for Spring themed cards and more ...


Here are my DT pieces for DAY 2 featuring Leafy designed by Deepti aka Dee's Artsy Impressions ...


For my first card, I stamped one of the leaf stamps into a wet watercolour background to get the blurry look. I finished off with a fuzzy cut leaf and stamped sentiment strip.


My second card features stamping using two different shades of green to add depth. A simple embossed sentiment and sequins finished my card off.

Here is Deepti's new set ...

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Tuesday and this means it's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations.  I had to use the butterfly from Sweetly, one of the sets in this week's release  ...


Yep, I've been using tissue paper again. This time I used it simply for a textured background rather than adding texture to die-cuts which I did in last week's Spotlight Project here.  It adds quite a bit of interest without being over powering. To finish I simply added the butterfly and die-cut sentiment.

STAMPlorations Special Release Day 1

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's release week over at STAMPlorations. They are introducing 4 stamp sets perfect for Spring themed cards and more ...


Here are my DT pieces for DAY 1 featuring Layered Vase designed by Shirley aka The Bee's Knees ...


My first card has been simply stamped using some of my Izink inks. Whenever I use them on new stamps the ink pearls a bit and doesn't give a solid coverage when stamping. I rather like the effect for artsy cards with splatters. The colours I used are: Grenadine and Cerise for the flowers, Verveine and Menthe for the leaves and Mer Du Sud for the vase.


My second card uses a partially stamped and gold embossed vase with a bit of watercolouring.

Here is Shirley's new set ...
