ARTplorations Blog Hop Featuring Sanna Lippert Designs



We've got a new designer in our midst at STAMPlorations, and it's our very own Sanna with her line of stencils!  To celebrate the launch we're having a little blog hop, and winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers' blogs.  You could win a $20 gift certificate, or your choice of 3 Sanna Lippert Designs stencils.


For this first card I used Trees1 with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide.  On some separate card I sponged more Peeled Paint, and a bit of Forest Moss DI, then stamped two holly leaves from Layered Holly.  Added some Christmas washi tape and card candi berries, and mounted the whole thing onto dark red card.


This second card uses Senecio1, which is a stencil/mask set.  I placed the masks on my card, sprinkled PaperArtsy Infusions in the gaps, then spritzed with water, dabbing it with kitchen roll before it got too muddy, then removed the masks.  I wanted to add definition to the pretty flower circles, so I drew in all the circles first with a 0.8 fineliner, then drew in the stalks.  I couldn't decide what sentiment to add, but, to be honest, I like it as it is without a sentiment, with the pattern showing in all its glory.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see all the gorgeous creations from the team.  You have until Monday 4 December to comment!
