STAMPlorations Release Week - Newlyweds Extras and Sentiment Builders: Love


It's Day 4 of STAMPlorations Release Week - what do you think of it so far?  Today we've got two sets for you, one of which I designed.  But first, we've got Sentiment Builders: Love:


I stamped the heart in Versamark and white-embossed, then sloshed some Worn Lipstick Distress Ink across, then added some highlights with Pickled Raspberry.  I added a swipe in either colour, then stamped the sentiment, then finished off with some splatters.  Chickenpox, anyone?

Here's the set that I designed for The Bee's Knees range, Newlyweds Extras, which complements yesterday's Newlyweds set.  I stamped some images in black and added shading with Black Soot Distress Ink (well watered down).  I stamped the background using the Sentiment Builders: Love set in Versafine Smoky Grey.

 


Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see the fabulous cards from the rest of the Design Team and our guest designer, Laura Bassen.  Don't forget to comment on each of the Design Team's blogs and the STAMPlorations blog for chances to win.

Six (6) commenters randomly drawn from the Design Team's blogs will each win a $10 gift certificate, and one (1) commenter randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win a $30 gift certificate.

Pop back tomorrow for the final day of our release.

  9. Happy sighhh... Your first gorgeous card is convincing me to revisit my current "off again" relationship with my distress inks and water-colouring. Perhaps I'll give them just one more chance *grin*. The second card, with the single images paired with the eye-catching background, is pure delight. So fabulous!

  15. Love the heart card. I would have thought you watercolored until I read your post. You put a lot of work into the other card with all the wording in the background. Great cards.

  17. Wow, love the love and kisses card! You always have such interesting backgrounds and I really like how you work with color. I love how you colored some of the hearts with a deeper pink. It gives the card dimension.
