Find Beauty

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my teamies and I are showcasing stamps designed by STAMPlorations owner Shery under her label 'Shery Russ Designs'.

Well, I got a bit of a surprise for you and ended up making two cards, the first one using the butterfly from Gone Postal, the Find Beauty sentiment from the new Say It Big Series, the little corcles from the Artsy Border Maker and a print of the Ethnic Organic 2 ARTplorations Stencil to create a card fitting the sentiment.

It was a pretty straight forward card to make, the stencil print was one I took when working with Infusion Powders through the Ethnic Organic 2 stencil. It's on linen effect card ,and all I had to do was stamp the sentiment and dotty circles, add the stamped and fuzzy cut butterfly and finish off with a few sparkly enamel dots.

My second card uses the Blossom Sprays #2 stamp and the Good Luck CUTplorations Phrase Die, both from the new release.

It's simply stamped and watercoloured and finished off with a die-cut sentiment.

  1. Such different cards - each beautiful in its own way!

  2. Artsy first card and what a great effect through the stencil. The second card is so pretty and what a lovely idea to die cut the sentiment in orange x

  3. Had to tell you how perfect I think your chaos card is. Perfect BG for the sentiment. And the butterfly rises out of it all in its perfection.

  4. Fabulous cards Monika, That floral is on my wishlist. Love the colours on your butterfly card and great use of the stencil
