Hello Craft Friends!
It's Blog Hop Time over at STAMPlorations to celebrate and showcase their latest stamp release, 4 gorgeous sets to celebrate the feminine.
First up is Sweet & Sassy Mom designed by Becca, a set of 6 image and 7 sentiment stamps, which I used to make this super CAS card ...
Next up another CAS card showcasing the flowers from Deepti's Best Mom Ever (1 large floral image and 4 sentiment stamps) and a sentiment from Shery's One Cool Chick set with a little bit of Spotlight Colouring and orange embossing thrown into the mix ...
Well I did add some glossy accents to that yellow flower too after a bit of a lucky escape. I used Promarkers to colour an image I had intended to watercolour. Yep, Archival ink and alcohol markers is not a good combination. Luckily I realized what happened early on and was able to avoid going over the stamped lines when colouring. 😌
Next up is the card I made using Shery's set, One Cool Chick (1 girlie image and 9 sentiment stamps), in combination with Noteworthy and the Lacy Edges And Borders CUTplorations Dies.
A little bit of watercolouring, splattering, foiling, fuzzy cutting around part of the image and die-cutting a border was all that was needed to make this card. I used holographic silver foil which gives my design a lovely colourful border when catching the light.
Last, but not least, is Shirley's Parfumerie, a set of 9 image and 2 sentiment stamps, perfect for those watercoloured CAS cards.
Stamped and watercoloured with a little shadow, I added some fine splattering to give the impression of spraying the viewer with fragrance from the bottle.
I am entering this scented card at:
Less Is More - Shadow
CASology - Flow
