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.

Sehr schöne Beileidskarte! Wusste nicht, dass man mit einer Büroklammer "shaden" kann, aber das Ergebnis gefällt mir gut!

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!

Or you can see the same thing on my photo tutorial. With mirror
