STAMPlorations inspiration #64

Welcome to the first March STAMPlorations inspiration post. You may remember my Lake Huron sunrise from my last inspiration post. I made two cards out of one stamped image from New Beginnings. This is what I did with the "chunk" die cut from the first.


I had applied Distress Inks to Neenah CS and stamped the image in black Versafine. Then I had decided that was just way too much goodness for one card, so I had die cut a chunk out of it using a Lifestyle Crafts diamond die.

So to spread the goodness, I stamped the image again on a white cardbase and took that diamond and adhered it where it fit the design. I felt that a circle would be a good complement to the rectangle and diamond shapes, and mimic the sun, so I heat embossed a sentiment from Floral Bliss onto a black circle and popped it up. CAS. But bold CAS.

Here are both cards from the one stamped image.


This was another of those creative sessions where I have no plan of attack, and after a few detours a card (or two) happen. Love it when that happens. Does that happen to you too?

Check out the inspiration from the other DT members and remember to leave a comment to be in the running for a prize!

This is my last coloring entry at Kathy R.'s 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I'm playing at Inkspirational where the theme is Geometric (rectangle, diamond, circle - geometry played a large role in my design actually). And at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where it's Anything Goes.  And finally, at Penny Black and More where we're to use Stamps and Dies.

  4. maria f., these are both amazing!! How smart of you to make your image into two different cards. They're more interesting AND you have two of them. How can you lose?! Way to go for using your chunk right away and not let it sit in a pile of "extras".
