STAMPlorations 4th Birthday Blog Hop

Hi there,

it's time for the 4th STAMPlorations Birthday Blog Hop and these are my creations.

  • stamp the STAMPlorations Blossom Sprays #2 with Versamark onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper and heat-emboss the image with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • color the flowers with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a damp watercolor brush
  • stamp the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Strong Women set with Versafine (Smokey Gray)
  • adhere the watercolor panel to a grey cardbase

  • cut out one of the CUTplorations Luggage Tags and the CUTplorations Cupcake Builder from Bristol Smooth Cardstock
  • add color to the background with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac)
  • dye a piece of seam binding with the leftover ink
  • apply some DecoFoil Adhesive through the ARTplorations Daisy Play stencil and add some DecoFoil (Silver Star) to the flowers
  • color the cupcake with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and add Distress Clear Rock Candy Glitter to the frosting
  • slightly curve the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Gone Postal set before stamping it with Versafine (Smokey Gray)

  • create a background on a stitched panel of watercolor paper using Distress Oxide Inks (Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet) and water from a Mister Bottle
  • cut out the CUTplorations Congrats! twice - once from grey cardstock and once from black cardstock - layer both die cuts slightly offset on top of each other in order to create a shadow effect
  • add a thin strip of black and a strip of silver glitter cardstock before adhering all the layers to a cardbase
