STAMPloration Inspiration #77

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

My stamp supplies:


Blossom Overture, Bloom Sketches

I did some smooshing here after I heat embossed the daisies onto water color paper. Added black splatters, heat embossed the sentiment and mounted it with foam tape.

What's new for our Inspiration Project posts? We'll 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 :)

Linking up with:
Snippets Playground - use a snippet (sentiment strip)
Stamp Ink Paper#49 - Flowers
WOW embossing powders - white heat embossing
SIP Challenge 49 Flowers 800

Happy Stamping!

I love your heat embossed and smooshed colorful background Cornelia. Your black CS with heat embossed sentiments are a beautiful contrast for your background. I noticed your black splatters right away too. TFS and always Inspiring us my friend. Hugs, Nancy

Wow I just love how you make it looks so simple, I have this stamp but when I try this style I am just too controlled. The colours compliment each other and it all works perfectly.
Oh Cornelia, you've done it again!!! this card is just gorgeous!! I've always wanted to learn to do water color washes like this one, it's simply stunning the way you combined this colors on this panel and still, they look separate.
When I attempt to do this, I end up with a big, ugly mess.
Can I ask you please if you wet your paper first and then apply the colors? or do you apply the colors and then spray them with water?
Gorgeous card, thank you so much for sharing.
Maria Rodriguez.

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
