STAMPlorations inspiration #335

 
I'm going for the heavy-loaded version today. Actually, I just took a look at my massive PP stash. Pulled out some fall-ish paper and let myself be inspired.


 distress ink, gold embossing powder, fibers

I chose the olive green PP, chose Peeled Paint DI and stenciled some of Sanna's flowers over the PP. I adhered the PP to my cardbase and noticed the "iris bloom" on the strip I cut off. Decided that would look cool popped up on that vine and voila! The half heat embossed stacked die cut is a looker. The fibers behind it... let's just call it a flash of genius. Honestly, I tripped over the bucket I was saving the pieces in. (tee hee hee)

Another fun CAS card today.


 Zig markers, washi

I revisited a previous card of mine for this design and pulled out Shirley's Folk Flowers. In contrast to the stark B/W I colored the die cut blooms with pink and orange and KAPOW! A strip of washi with some gold dots never hurts either. Do you prefer CAS or heavy-loaded designs? Which do you prefer to make?

STAMPlorations inspiration #333

Hello there September! Hope you're all well. It's time for another Tuesday inspiration post from the STAMPlorations inspiration team girls
 
Today's card is a fun CAS one.

 Zig markers

Sometimes ya gotta take a closer look at the images in a stamp set, right? I love the art marks series and decided to give that little rainbowish mark center stage as a rainbow in all its glory! I used my Misti and markers to color the individual arcs. Stamped once with color, spritzed the stamp and stamped again. I like this trick to soften up the image a little. Repeated for each color.

I added a birthday sentiment and adhered the little rectangle to a random stamped cardbase.

STAMPlorations inspiration #332

 
Today's card uses the inlaid die cut technique on a heat embossed panel.

 Forest Moss, Peacock Feathers, Fossilized Amber distress inks
green embossing powder

First I randomly stamped a panel with art marks and green heat embossed them. Then I die cut the bird from the panel, inked him and inlaid him back into the panel on my cardbase. A die cut "hello" finished off my card. Do you like the result? Or do those heat embossed images on the bird bother you like they do me?

STAMPlorations inspiration #331

 
Today's card uses the inlaid die cut technique. And some hot ink colors.

 Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry distress inks
gold and white embossing powder

First I gold heat embossed the floral spray all over an A2 panel. Then I die cut the butterflies from the panel, inked them and inlaid them back into the panel on my cardbase. A heat embossed sentiment on a black circle finished up the card. Voila!

STAMPlorations inspiration #330

 
I've had another play with the ephemera tiles from the paper goods section of the STAMP store. This time I die cut one of the tiles into a circle for this everything-but-the-kitchen-sink card...

I die cut the tile, a bird and another circle from inked scraps. I inked the edge of the cardbase using the stencil. Added some black stamping to the bird and larger circle and a little tidbit of die cut border and washi up top. Eclectic. But fun, right?

STAMPlorations inspiration #329

Time for another summer Tuesday inspiration post from the STAMPlorations inspiration team girls

I've had another play with the ephemera tiles from the paper goods section of the STAMP store. I like that the words/messages on these tiles work for multiple occasions. I've die cut one of the tiles for this CAS all encouragement card.

I die cut the tile and created my present. I stamped the sentiment through the circle portion of the stencil onto my cardbase. Then I adhered the present and some washi strips.

Thanks for visiting. Hope your summer is going well.
