Howdy folks! I've got a trio of posts coming at you in the next three days, showcasing some of the newly released STAMPlorations sets. Thanks to the generosity of Shery R. owner of STAMPlorations (and also Stamping Royalty 2014!) you could win yourself one of the sets if you come back here on Wednesday and leave a comment. Just sayin' ;)))
So, I grabbed my first set SUBWAY ART BUILDERS: Dare. You can use these as a block (a la subway art). Or cut them apart and you've got some great individual sentiments too. My fave is that last one with the sketched letters.
Then I hit blogland and picked out a couple challenges, CAS on Sunday #33 Sketch, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Die Crazy and Colour Q #241.
Taking my cue from the sentiment "follow your heart", here's my CAS card.
I used pigment inks to unevenly ink up the reverse of a circle stamp (going for a watercolor look) and to swipe some color onto scrap CS which I then die cut for the hearts. Stitched them on and added the sentiment - doesn't its size work perfectly for a card front? I think it would work well on the inside of a card too...
That's it for today. Come back again tomorrow, OK?
