Beautiful Friends

Hi there,

today, STAMPlorations is releasing some wonderful new stamp sets and I used the brand new STAMPlorations Beautiful Friends stamp sets on my projects.

My first project is this tag:

  • cut out a tag using one of the CUTplorations Tags #1 dies from smooth white cardstock
  • stamp one of the flower pots from the STAMPlorations Beautiful Friends set with Versafine Clair Morning Mist
  • color the image with Prismacolor Colored Pencils
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with that same grey ink
  • thread pink and natural twine through the hole of the tag


This card with an ombre sentiment is my second project:

  • stamp the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Beautiful Friends set with four different colors of Altenew Crisp Ink (Sea Breeze, Turquoise, Tide Blue, Starlight)
  • stamp two flower pots from the same set with Versafine Clair Nocturne
  • color the images with Prismacolor Colored Pencils
  • add details with a white gel pen and Nuvo Drops (Blue Babe, Double Denim)
  • mount the stitched panel onto a piece of patterned paper from the Carta Bella Spring Market 6x6 paper pad before adhering all the layers to a white cardbase


I hope that you like my creations.

Stamp Connection #46

Hi there,

connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Cornelia from Stempel Spass and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 2nd Sunday of the month and this is our 46th transatlantic get-together!

Our requirement for this meet-up was:
"almost Spring and Colored Pencils"

I used the super sweet Clearly Besotted Stamps Garden Gnomes stamp set to create this little scene:

  • stamp the little scene with the help of the Clearly Besotted Stamps Garden Gnomes set, Versafine Smokey Gray and the Masking Technique
  • color the images with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils and Zest-it
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • cut around the scene using a stitched scalloped rectangle die
  • mat the panel onto a piece of patterned paper from the Avery Elle Brights Collection 6x6 paper pad before adhering it to a cardbase



Now make sure to hop over to see Cornelia's Creation.
