Stamp Spotlight SB Love and Newlyweds Extras

Today we, the STAMPLorations Girls and our guest designer Laura Bassen, are shining the spotlight on: The Bee's Knees Newlyweds Extras and Sentiment Builders: Love

For today's project I made a CAS card using Sentiment Builders: Love
First I stamped the two hearts and embossed them in white. I then masked the top bit off and blended yellow and pink inks. I removed the mask and stamped my sentiment into place before rounding the corners, layering on my base card and finishing off by adding a few gems.
I would like to enter this card into the CAS challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More, STAMPlorations is sponsoring this week. :-)
My next card is another CAS card, this time with a birthday theme, using the The Bee's Knees Newlyweds Extras and VIGNETTE Chevron & Arrows. This is one I want to enter in the current CASology challenge (Birthday), which STAPlorations is sponsoring too.

I went back to basics and used coloured inks to stamp the bouquet and sentiment before rounding a couple of corners, layering on my kraft base card and adding some gems to finish.
Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here.

  10. Sighh...Your first gorgeous card is convincing me to revisit my current "off again" relationship with my distress inks and water-colouring. Perhaps I'll give them just one more chance *grin*. The colourful bouquets in the second: stunning!

  11. Monika your 2nd card is BURNER small format, at first I thought what is this stamp that looks like a firework rocket - then, the magnification, the surprise for my old (and tired) eyes ... these are the Flower Bouquets
