STAMPlorations Inspiration Project #21

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day again at STAMPlorations

The DT girls made some beautiful cards to entice you playing with your stamps or stencils - STAMPlorations or otherwise.

Today I have been playing with the Marigold from the new stamp club set The Birds and The Blooms.

I first stamped the Marigold 3 times on Kraft, then masked it with rubber cement. After that dried I gessoed it over, let it dry again and then rubbed of the cement. I still am learning how to do this correctly, since it did not cover everything consistently and little specks of Gesso remained on the paper....That did not make me happy, so I made myself a post -it mask and repeatedly stamped onto the Gesso. Still not happy.... stamped the flower onto white card stock and fuzzy cut it and mounted it with foam tape. Now I liked it..... Added the sentiment from the set Fond Expressions

I don't know if you did this "right" or not. Don't care, because I love it. White & Black on kraft with that lovely marigold makes me very happy...and, you know, it's all about me. Anyhoo, fabulous card...going to try this one, too.

Wonderful idea for a sympathy card. I actually brought some masking fluid back with me this spring, but haven't been brave enough to try it. Kudos!

Wow! I am speechless :)

This is really cool, Cornelia! Love how it turned out. I wonder if masking fluid would be easier to use rather than rubber cement? It's been a long time since I've used masking fluid. Anyway, fantastic card! :-)

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it?

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
