STAMPlorations Inspiration #285


Hello, it's Tuesday so it's Inspiration day at STAMPlorations.  I'm going through a CAS phase at the moment, so you'll see a few CAS cards scattered amongst my splattery smooshy cards over the next few weeks.  Until I have another 'phase'!

I used the sundae image from Sugar Rush, which is now available as part of a digi set.  I coloured it, fussy cut it and then set it on a doily made with a die from Bloomdala Bliss Felicity.  The Mmmm... comes from my set And Coffee.

Seize The Birthday - Diecuts Only


Hello, we've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, and our optional topping is Diecuts Only (with a stamped sentiment if you wish).  Or you can still play along with our Anything Goes option as long as it's birthday-themed.

I've used Peony Dream die from Altenew to create my flower, which I mounted onto one of my mop-up panels.  The sentiment is also Altenew.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #284


Hello! Time for another Tuesday Inspiration post at STAMPlorations, and today I'm using the waste from die cutting last week's sentiment.  If you align the 'happy' and 'birthday' dies you can use the waste by backing it onto contrasting card.  Then you can either add the letter fillers back in, or just leave them out for a funky, modern look.

I added a cupcake from Deepti's Sweet Surprise to perch on the Skinny Sentiments sentiment banner.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #283

 

Hello!  It's Inspiration Tuesday at STAMPlorations, and today I've used diecuts and a stencil to create this birthday card.

The stencil is Helen's Make Marks 5, the balloon and string are Deepti's Shaker Balloons #1 and the sentiment is Shery's Skinny Sentiments cut on gold card and mirri card.  I love the way the mirri card reflects a whole rainbow of colours!  Next week I'm using the diecut waste from this card, winner!

Seize The Birthday - Add Gold

 

It's time for a new Seize The Birthday challenge, and for this one we want you to add gold.


I sponged some Distress Inks onto a card panel and spritzed with water before stamping the image from Kaisercraft.  The butterfly is from Uniko and I'm not sure where the sentiment is from.  I mounted it all onto a gold card panel then onto my card base.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #282

It's Inspirations Tuesday on the STAMPlorations blog, and I've got a 5x7 card today, with a smooshed background using the Tea Blend Word Art stamp and Cup of Blooms 1, which I watercoloured with Distress Inks and fussy cut.  The birthday sentiment is from Deepti's Balloons and Banners.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #281

 


It's Tuesday so we've got some more inspiration for you at STAMPlorations.  My inspiration comes from the Autumn 2020 edition of Somerset Studio magazine.  The face, the flowers, the bold title, the colour scheme (although my flowers are paler).

I stencilled the Pensive face onto my card panel with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, then added some loose watercolouring with Crushed Velvet and Bundled Sage.  I stamped the Fabulous and the rest of the sentiment from Groovy Shoes in Memento inks, but the paler ink didn't really stand out enough so I gave it a drop shadow using coloured pencil.  Then I added some splatters :)  Oh, and a touch of blusher.
