STAMPlorations inspiration #120

Welcome to Tuesday inspiration from the STAMPlorations inspiration team. Today we're using Deepti's Artsy Impression stamps.

Today's card is a biggie. As in 5.5 x 8". Cuz I  die cut some balloons using Kathryn's Big Wishes from a fun Gelli plate print and it had to be a big bunch of balloons! BTW, this die is a great one to have in your stash, for the balloon alone!

But it gets even better cuz with the Kathryn's Big Wishes stamp set you can add this sweet little gal to your die cut balloons. And she has so much nice detail on her you don't have to color her in. Can you say easy?

What wasn't as easy was getting those threads on there and knotting them! And I should have used my anti-static pad before heat embossing the sentiment gold offset over the red one. I'd used pigment ink and it looked dry ;) Guess it wasn't cuz the powder stuck to some of it and made the delineation less clear. Oops.

Want more? Here and here are a couple older creations using Kathryn's Big Wishes.

So from now until next Tuesday, Deepti's Dee's Artsy Impressions stamp line is 10% off. With the STAMPGIRLMARIA discount on top, you'll save yourself another 20%!

And don't forget to leave comments on the DT's inspiration posts. One random commenter will be chosen each month to win a $10 GC to the store. Here's the lineup.

I'm joining the fun at The Heart Desires with this card cuz of my colors and the threads (even though there's no sewn element).


  1. Fabulous colours on the balloons and love your attention to detail with the thread x

  2. Such cool balloons, Maria ... and so fun all tied into a bouquet ready for that sweet little girl to hold onto! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. Very cool, Maria. That little lady is so sweet, and not just a one trick pony; she'd be great for kids or grownups! Love those balloons, and all that tying was worth the effort, this looks fantastic. Hope your mom is doing better today. Blessings and prayers for you all. Bev
