Create a Scene with Nature Stamps

Hello friends!
I am excited to share card that I made the other day. 
This card took me quite a while to finish.
Its not because it was hard, but it did take time for each layer to dry.

If you see the photos, you would know why good things do take time (sometimes).
you are in my thoughts-002 

 I started out with stamping the bird first.

All the ink-coloring and layering are done with Distress Oxide.

I then add a layer of color wash for the background and gradually added details (splatter, stamping flowers at the bottom... etc). The flowers (on the lower right) are from Nature's Art.

 Instead of stamping sentiment in black, I stamped it in blue and love how it sort of blended with the background that I created.

And oh...did you see the glitter? It was easy to add that bits of glitter.
With the 2-Way Glue Pen and TH Distress Glitter, I absolutely LOVE the result with so little effort.
you are in my thoughts-001

I hope that you enjoy seeing cards like this.

It was a JOY to create something with nature stamps as they make you feel like an artist!

Create with a Large Cling Stamp (with a Removable Center)

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a post about using a large stamp.
This (new to me) stamp certainly intrigued me.

I used the two parts of the stamp separately.
thank you for your kindness

First, I stamped, embossed and watercolored the outer image first.

thank you for your kindness-001

Once I fitted the inner stamp inside the outer stamp, I then removed the outer layer from Stamp Positioner such as TH Stamp Platform and MISTI.

thank you for your kindness (2)

After coloring the entire piece, I decided to cut out the bottom part of the image and adhered it to the white card stock.

thank you for your kindness-002

I am sure there are many many ways to use this stamp....only if I have all the time to try them all out!

Layered Butterfly!

Hello friends!

I am sharing a fun and simple project with you today.
s
This is one FABULOUS die (Layered Butterfly from Spellbinders) comes with 3 dies and you can use it independently or layer two or all three!

Caution--only Simon Says Stamp has it in stock. Act FAST! Two one left only! 
it's gone! πŸ˜•

The similar ones ( I know it's not the same) are still available--> here and here
you are inspiring
I used pattern paper and did some quick layering!

you are inspiring-003

To compliment the background, I used Warp Speed Stencil to accentuate the focal point.

you are inspiring-001

The key is to turn the angle of the stencil to create a sense of motion for the butterfly.

you are inspiring-002
The embossing paste does a quick job. Love the result.

you are inspiring-004


Hope you have a lovely day.

Simon Says Stamp New Release "Good Vibes"!

Hello friends!
s

Lucky for me to have a new stamp (thanks, SSS!) called Center Cut Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp.
s
 from the new release "Good Vibes" from Simon Says Stamp.
This release has really fun and happy images and designs. 
Happy birthday (2)

 This large Center Cut Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp comes with one extra component than the norm. That is, it has a removable circle stamp in the center.

DSC_0042

I wanted to take advantage of this removable element. 
So, I embossed the outer image in white for the background and silver in the circle.  
Happy birthday-002

This was all created in one piece/layer without using a circle die. Love that.

Happy birthday-001   

Of course, MISTI makes this possible for me to create two embossing in one layer without masking or die-cutting.  To add interest and movement, I added an alcohol-inked vellum butterfly.

HB

I added some more colors in a few spots in the background with the Companion Crafter's Pen (Spring Collection).

You can find the Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp here.
