Here are my takes on some of the new fabulous stamps. Let's get started!
1st card: FYI, you rock:)
Supplies: LOL(CL7373), paint chip (Lowe's), Crate paper, sequins, embossing powder (detailed, white)
Special features: I used the FREE and durable paint chip/paint swatches as the base for the white-embossed iPhone image. It gives the "screen" a lovely gradient of colors without the extra work!
2nd card: #you mean so much to me
Supplies: LOL, CL 651 My Favorite , Tweed Pattern , Roma Background, Shadow Inks ( Navy, Pale Tomato, Butter Bar, Cup o Joe), Clear embossing Powder (Recollections), Glossy Accent (Ranger), gems
Special features: this one layer card was first inked in Navy, then kissed the Tweed Pattern and then stamped. After that, it was clear-embossed over the image to give an extra shine. With masking, Roma Background was stamped. Add sentiment (# hashtag can be hand-drawn) and speech bubbles. Apply gems and Glossy Accent, let dry.
3nd card-you're in my thoughts
Supplies: Painted Poppy (G5906), Poppy in Wind (G5905) , sentiment Forever (AC 037), ribbons (American Crafts), sequins, Hero Arts Inks (Pale Tomato, Butter Bar, Raspberry, Soft Cantaloupe), TH Distress Ink (Ripe Persimmon, Spun sugar, Worn Lipstick, Mowed Lawn), Marvey Marker (dark green), Liquid Perfect Pearl
Special features: To create the different shades and depth of the flowers, stamp the flowers multiple times in various inks and shades. A gadget like Stamp Positioner will help, but I managed it without using one (I used an L shape toy instead, see here)
4th (last) card: That's a Smile!
(the cutie pie in the photo is my grand-niece-my nephew's daughter)
Supplies: Looks Good (CL749), Hero Arts Shadow Ink (Pale Tomato), embossing powder (detailed, fine, white), Embellishments (Fancy Pants), staples (making Memories), button and string
Special features: This set "Looks Good" is perfect for a photo card. By using a cute photo and some ready-made embellishments, this card was super easy to create! Other than cards, you can even create a scrapbook layout or a personalized picture frame with multiple photos!
Well, that's it! I hope you get some ideas and inspiration from my humble post. I am so proud to be part of this blog hop.
Big thanks to Hero Arts for giving us hostesses a chance to showcase these awesome stamps!
