Technique – Stamping

Featuring stamping

Window on Love

Happy Saturday people!

Today is a great day as I was finally able to play with the wonderful Hero Arts Window on Love confetti die! I have wanted this for soooooo long and snapped it up when Seven Hills Crafts got it in this week!

I decided to use it to play along with the current Twofer challenge (hearts).

For the first card, I channelled my inner Laura Fadora and used the wonderful ‘Press ‘n Seal’ technique that she demonstrated a few weeks ago. Thanks for the inspiration Laura, I LOVE this technique. It did take AGES to apply foam to the back of the confetti pieces, but it was totally worth it! Once I had stuck all the little die cut images to the base card, I embossed a sentiment (from an older Hero Arts set) on vellum and stuck it onto the card.

 For my second card, I used just a few of the die cut hearts to create a little strip on my CAS card. The sentiment is also from an older Hero Arts stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Another favourite hobby

Hi everyone!

It’s been a gorgeous afternoon here, makes me want to get out in the garden again! Alas, spring is not really springing as we have another colder snap heading our way.

Still, when I saw the Time Out challenge theme (hobbies), I thought of gardening. Well obviously I could have chosen crafting, but I wanted to celebrate another hobby. If time permits, I may enter again with a crafty card!

Anyway, for this CAS card, I coloured a Simon Says Stamp image with my Twinkling H2Os – it was wonderfully shimmery in the gorgeous sunlight this afternoon, but so hard to capture on camera!

I was intending to follow the challenge’s optional twist of a one layer card, but I’ve added a small bit of bling – so not sure that it still counts as a one layer card?

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – anything goes.

Gilded Flower

Hello everyone!

I bought a couple of new Woodware stamps at the start of the year and have been wanting to use this beautiful big bloom for a while. It’s a large image and I thought it would be perfect to use with this week’s sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This was very quick to make – less than 15 minutes! I stamped the image and embossed it with Ranger sticky embossing powder. I then added some Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Leaves gilding flakes. I die cut the image and stuck it on top of the two strips of glitter paper that I had stuck to the card base.

Very easy, but effective! Love the shimmer so much!

Best in the whole Mewniverse

Hi everyone!

Happy Saturday!

I finally had the chance to play with the fabulous kitty stamp set that I got with my first order from Heffy Doodle stamps. Isn’t it cute – I just love that sentiment!

Lots of masking needed for this card – I’m hoping that the coordinating die will be available to purchase in the next release!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love You. Mean It.

Hi there everyone!

For today’s card, I pulled out an older Penny Black heart border stamp from my wood mounted stamp collection – it’s been quite a while since I used it and I enjoyed inking it up again!

I blended a little Tumbled Glass distress ink before I stamped the image and then added Bundled Sage afterwards.

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things.

I used Delicata shimmer inks for the image and sentiment – I just love that shimmer!

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch Challenge and also the Work Your Stash Wednesday challenge over on Instagram.

Have a delightful day!

Hi Everyone!

I’m loving the sketch for this week’s Case This Sketch challenge – so many possibilities! In the end, I kept it simple!

I stamped and coloured a fabulous image from PaperArtsy using distress oxide inks. To finish off the card, I added a  Clearly Besotted sentiment to a blended strip of card and adhered it to the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
