STAMPlorations Inspiration #345


It's time for some more STAMPlorations Inspiration, and this week I've got a Christmas card with a stencilled background for you.

I started by stamping the Christmas Baubles then sponging them with Distress inks.  They looked a little bleh, so I stencilled a Prim Pattern background using the same colours, and added more deeper colour and white highlights on the baubles.  I finished off the panel by doodling an outline in black pen and added a sentiment from Joy.

Seize The Birthday - Hobbies and Pastimes

Hellooo! It's time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, and Lindsey has chosen Hobbies and Pastimes.

I went with gardening - or buying plants from garden centres, which isn't necessarily the same thing, is it? The image is from Stampingbella and the sentiment is from Altenew Birthday Greetings.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #344


Hellooo!  Got some more STAMPlorations inspiration for you today, this time a Christmas card.  The stamped sleigh from Joyful was in my stash so I just coloured and fussy cut it.  Instead of diecutting the snow, I cut the sky using Stitched Snow Hills and adhered it to my card base and dotted some white Posca pen snow, then added the sleigh and a sentiment from Christmas Sentiments Phrase die set.

Christmas In The Air Kit #3 - Take Three

Hellooo!  It's our final showcase of the Christmas In The Air Kit #3, and I've got a couple more cards for you.

For my first card I simply stamped the images onto kraft, added some white gel pen and stamped a red sentiment.  There's something about black, white and red on kraft that really appeals to me.

My second card uses the bell stencil from the kit, along with one of the ephemera tiles.  I coloured the "Joyful" to match the bell, and added some stars to echo the stars on the tile.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #343


Hellooo!  We've got some more Tuesday Inspiration for you at STAMPlorations.  I recently started following @sylvievlys on Instagram, and I love how she curates and collates pieces that she's stamped and coloured, and then arranges them beautifully and cohesively on a card.  This is my attempt to emulate that style.

I used several stamp sets and a die:

Scribbly Splattery Grunge

Kathryn's Big Wishes

BaaBaa

Woodland Friends

Trendy Leaves

Houses

Art Border Die

I hate that Blogger forces a line space on the Return key.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #342



Hello, it's time for some Tuesday inspiration at STAMPlorations, and today I've used a card front from the Quick Cards #3 Spring Florals set. 

Now, for a very quick card, I could have just attached it to my card base and stamped my sentiment, but I decided to doodle some flower outlines over the images.  Then I added some black pen dots, and finally splattered some gold Gansai Tambi paint over the whole panel.  The sentiment is from my set Carved Flowers.
