STAMPlorations inspiration #203

Back for a Tuesday inspiration from the STAMPlorations inspiration team where the team members feature stamps from one of our talented stamp designers.

We're showcasing Big Grins by Becca stamps. Becca's stamps are 10% off automatically this week (with an extra 20% off when you use my discount code STAMPGIRLMARIA).

This month, I 'm creating CAS cards incorporating stamps, dies and stencils!

embossing paste
distress ink


I thought the die of the buttercups would work stand alone, so stamped a couple more on my cardbase. Brushed on a light layer of Mowed Lawn and then stenciled the embossing paste on. I chose the Broken Glass stencil cuz I thought it underscored the sentiment, and supported the idea of plants working to break through tough ground. Die cut one buttercup from a previously watercolored background and sketchily stamped the outline onto it. This bright green sure makes me ready for spring!

I've used this set here too if you'd like more inspiration.

You could win yourself a $10 GC to the store by leaving a comment on the February inspiration posts. Check out today's post for more inspiration here. Thanks for coming by :)

Lovely card! I like your thought process for creating this card.... Using broken glass stencil as it worked with the sentiments and flowers breaking through the ground. Very smart!
