I’m sharing a project made with Fleurs / Flowers stamps by Katzelkraft from France.  I used a lot of Golden Paints, Heavy Weight Modeling Paste, a fun stencil from My Favorite Things aaaand some Pearl Texture Luxe  for my background. Oh!! There’s also some tissue paper in there and I created texture with burlap that you can just barely see in the corner. Lots of fun Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops, too. Did I mention the glitter? Because there’s glitter, too. It not only adds texture but a pop of shimmer. I wish the photo did it justice.

 

 

And another pic with just a slightly different view. This thing is a MASSIVE tag and very hard to photograph! Each one of the floral stamps is a tiny little shaker that I attached onto vellum and then created a shaker pocket for. Cool, huh?

Now, be sure to check out all these blogs and comment for your chance to win the grand prize!!

Onto some craftiness!

I’m showcasing two stamp sets today.  Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Spa Day by Brandi Kincaid and Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Wonky Backdrops by Julie Ebersole.

The first card that I made just makes me giggle. I used Copic Markers to color the cutie from the Spa Day stamp set, the candle, some flowers and cucumbers. Then I used the coordinating die set and die cut them all out, plus the face mask. I also used the ARC Crafts Cherry wood Veneer Envelopes (what I had on hand) to die cut the mirror. Love that stuff and it makes the mirror more homey looking. The mirror’s bulbs were created using the 4mm Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh, and coloring them with a bright yellow Copic.

I also used the Essentials By Ellen Designer Dies by Brandi Kincaid Mirror, Mirror to create the mirror. The phenomenal quote is from the Spa Day Stamp Set.

My second card is a little bit different, but I hope you like it. I’m using the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Wonky Backdrops by Julie Ebersole for this one.

The beautiful yellow cardstock was stamped in Versamark repetitively with the polka dots to form the background (using the MISTI) and then heat set using a clear embossing powder.

Then using the large dots from the set I used Distress Inks to create watercolor spots/blobs/dots. ;) Once dried, I stamped over them with Versamark using the sketchy wheel designs from the same set and heat embossed with a gold embossing powder. Using a stamped/heat embossed sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Mirror Mirror by Brandi Kincaid completed the card. I just love how graphic this card is and shows the many ways you can use the stamps from the Wonky Backdrops set.  It’s a keeper! HA!

I hope you enjoyed my cards today. I know I had fun creating them. This is a really great release that has something for everyone. So onto your NEXT stop! The always amazing Sandy Allnock!! Enjoy her wonderful creativity and the rest of the hop.

If you get lost along the hop, please visit the CLASSroom blog for a complete list of all of the designers.
