STAMPlorations Inspiration #117

Hi Everyone,

We are going to do things a bit differently in 2017 - each week we will feature one STAMPlorations designer. But for this week its going to be anything goes!


My stamp supplies:
No stamps, but the CUTplorations THANKS die

I got this Spirograph set for Christmas - I used to have one as a child and it's really cool. So I experimented with it. It needs some practice, I guess I will get better over time. I drew this with differently colored Sharpie markers. Added metallic paper strips and die cut the THANKS from the same paper. Added some sequins for more interest.



At our  Inspiration Project posts have a monthly random drawing - 1 commenter wins a $10 gift certificate. So look at all those fabulous cards the Inspiration Girls made and leave them some love! It may pay off :)

STAMPlorations New Release Day 1

Hi Everyone,

today is the first day of STAMPlorations New Release Hop!


Today we are featuring Shery's set Noteworthy 2 - I just love those different fonts and font sizes!


preview-Noteworthy2-SheryRussDesigns stmp1035.jpeg

I inked up the butterflies with ink daubers real well, so that there was a lot of liquid on them and then smashed them onto my card stock. I then took a straw and blew the ink around a it. After it had dreid I added the sentiment and a a lot of splatters - took that from the still wet stamps. Also added a strip of PP.

So Suzy - Live with Flair and Laughter

Hi Everybody!

For today's card I have been playing with So Suzy Stamps Chrysanthemums!
My supplies:


Curious how I made this card?
Spritzed the inked up stamps with water

and stamped onto watercolor paper

  until I was happy with the look

added the sentiment

thought it gets a bit lost - probably should have stamped it a bit lower, but I did not want to start over again. (ha ha - fits Darnell's NBUS challenge now - hidden wird, but not the way she intended it..those Chrysanthemums are brand new for me)

Stamped part of the sentiment again on black paper and heat embossed it. Mounted it with foam tape.

added lots of sequins.
Hope you liked this!
Happy Stamping and Spritzing!

Almost not NBUS

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a card that I made for Darnell's second week of NBUS challenge- never before used shtuff....and I am not sure what's wrong with me, now that I am looking at this card I have actually used the bird  and the die, but wait - it does qualify - the tiny happy I have not yet used - its from a brand new STAMPlorations set, that will be introduced on February 3rd...... puh, dabbing the sweat of my forehead.... so glad I used that one and not a different happy....


Anyhow the technique for the NBUS challenge is hidden words, although my word is not really hidden. Thankfully the theme is optional...

My supplies:
Bird - Katzelkraft
die - Cutplorations
distress inks
water brush pens
Washi tape

Washi Tape Fun!

Hi Everyone,

I got this Washi tape combo at my Michaels recently and my fingers have been itching to use it! And as luck will have it - The Male Rooms current challenge is all about Washi tape!


So this is one super fast card. Took my neon ink daubers fromHero Arts and smashed them onto card stock. After the color dried I added those funny faces from YNS and heat embossed them to make sure the ink doesn't smudge. Added white to the eyes and red to the tongues;

 and of course the Washi tape.


This also loosely follows the sketch in the current YNS challenge, so I am linking up with them.

   

Go and get your Washi tape out!

Skipping Stones Design - Sassy Snow

Hi Everyone,

I am over at the Skipping Stones Design blog today with my card, using this adorable set called Sassy Snow


This is the complete set! So may possibilities here!


I dry embossed my background. stamped the snow woman onto a piece of scrap card stock and colored it with watercolor pens and fuzzy cut it. Stamped the sentiment onto light blue vellum and heat embossed it, so the ink does not smear. attached it and mounted the snow woman with foam tale. Added Stickles to the bigger snowflake and Wink of Stella to the hat and scarf, although it does not show in the picture.


See you next month at Skipping Stones Design!
Happy Stamping!

Muse #200

Hi Everyone,

believe it or not, but my card is a CASE of Jenni's card over at the Muse. They are celebrating their 200th challenge! Big congrats are in order!


Let me explain how I got there. 
You see the horizontal emphasis she created with her flower and the leaves - I did that with the sentiment and the EKG line going across. She has her focal image framed and I did that with the embossed heart die cut. I just did not use PP for my frame, but left it white. I also did multi tone stamping with my heart, using yellow and reds. That by the way is really easy to do with a MISTI.


So, whadda ya think - CASE, right?
