Choose to Shine

Hi there,

I created this pretty Poppy tag for the Karten-Kunst Blog:

  • cut out two tags using the Karten-Kunst Tags die set - one from kraft cardstock and one from patterned paper
  • stamp the Karten-Kunst Scribble Poppies with Lawn Fawn Jet Black onto the kraft tag
  • color the flowers with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers
  • add some splatters with watered-down ink from Hero Arts Ink Dauber Neon Pink
  • use a sticker as the sentiment
  • stamp the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Tag-Spr├╝che set with Versafine Nocturne onto the patterned paper side of the tag
  • thread two strands of twine through the hole of the tag

Have a wonderful day.

Sending Love

Hi there,

this is just a quick reminder of this month's Stencil Challenge over on the STAMPlorations Blog:

  • stamp the giraffe from the STAMPlorations Tweet Love set with Memento Tuxedo Black - stamp that same giraffe but this time use the mirror stamping technique
  • color the giraffes with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils
  • cut out a hill shape from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock using the CUTplorations Winter Landscape
  • add color to a white piece of smooth white cardstock with Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass and then apply Distress Oxide Ink Salty Ocean through the ARTplorations Clustered Hearts stencil and around the edges
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versamark onto a strip of colored cardstock and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bight White Super Fine embossing powder
  • add some patterned paper banners underneath the sentiment strip
  • as final embellishments add three little glittery hearts

I hope to see some of your creations in the gallery.
