STAMPloration Inspiration #74

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

I heat embossed the Calla Lily with white WOW embossing powder on vellum and the "shaded" it with a paper clip. Tore the right side of the vellum and attached it to black card stock. Added the sentiment and sequins.

My stamp supplies:
Smile, Fond Expressions

Cool technique. Vellum is so fabulous! I like the line of demarcation to the black.

Now you've got me intrigued how you did the shading with a paper clip! Such a gorgeous and striking effect with the vellum and black x

Saw this at STAMPlorations and it took my breath away...fairly flew over here to your site to get an even closer look. The shading is phenomenal. This is the kind of card that's so hard to make for me, but you did it, seemingly, with no problem at all. My mouth is still hanging open. Better shut it before the flies find it.

Oh this is so pretty! What a fun technique !
Hello Cornelia: I love the effect of the Vellum embossed like this, it's amazing the beautiful shades you get with just an embossing tool, or in your case, a paper clip, simply gorgeous.
Thank you for sharing.

Gorgeous card! I love how you embossed the image, and then colored the vellum with a paperclip. It really pops against the black cardstock!

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? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre

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
