STAMPlorations Inspiration


It's inspiration day at STAMPlorations today.  The Bloom Silhouettes ARTplorations stencil also comes with the cutout masks - double for your money!


The rosebuds reminded me of The Bee's Knees Rosebuds set, so I made a little background on my new 5x3 Gelli Plate (it's great, you can use it like a stamp!), and used the rosebud masks from the stencil pack then stamped the Gelli plate over the rosebud masks.  Then I stamped the bouquet from the Rosebuds stamp set on spare white card, coloured it with Distress Ink, added some grunge stamps from the Mixed Media Grunge set and a sentiment from The Bee's Knees World Birthday Cakes, which is released next month.

So, delicate rosebuds can live happily alongside grunge panels - have a go!  If you feel like CASE-ing this card, or any of the cards from the STAMPlorations team, don't forget to link it up to the STAMPlorations CASE playground - you could win prizes!

  5. Awesome card, Shirley! Isn't it cool how our products complement? I didn't think of Rosebuds when I did the stencil but the stencil and masks work great with it! I've got the 5x7 gelli plate but it's still in its packaging -- haven't busted it out yet since I've been using my old 8x10 most of the time.
