Cornelia playing with Oldies, but Goodies

Hi Everyone, Cornelia is back playing with some of the older STAMPlorations sets today! 
I used one of my favorite techniques - sponging and one of my favorite gadgets to make those cards - the Stamp-a-majig.

So, lets get started - I masked white card stock with post it notes - I like to do this an a grid pad, to get my lines straight. I used a Kaleidocolor inkpad for this card - in my opinion you can use any kind of ink for sponging - I have used them all with similar results. I basically just pick the colors I like.....

As you can see - I went with yellow and green.

I stamped the little number stamp on the clear plastic sheet that comes with the Stamp-a-majig, using Versafine ink (my favorite)

This way your stamping stays very exact:

Next I stamped the daisy and heat embossed it with superfine WOW embossing powder - I like the detail of that powder.

I then colored the daisy - also in yellow and green, but used my Brushos for that - sprinkling a few crystals on a clear acrylic block and using a water brush.

Added the sentiment and a few stitched lines and cut out the daisy.
I mounted the daisy with foam tape and added some Stickles to the center.

Here is a similar card I made, except that I stamped the heart strip on colored card stock and added some Washi tape:

Wow you are so creative Cornelia...I had to really look hard to see how you had used the patchwork frenzy stamp in the first card! Where do you come up with such clever and funky uses of stamps! And these second cards are stunning and again such creative ways to use Shery's stamps and fabulous inspiration for us x
