STAMPlorations Inspiration #136

Hey everyone!  It's almost June!  Hard to believe.  It's been a slow start to Spring here with lower than normal temperatures and tons of rainy days.  We usually get a fair amount of rain in the Spring but not quite this much.  I don't know about where you are but the blackflies are terrible here.  They are super annoying.  Thank goodness they only last a couple of weeks.  Of course, that means it'll be time for other annoying insects to come out of the woodwork.  Sigh.  Oh well.  At least things are green and growing again.

Today, over at STAMPlorations we've got one last Inspiration post to share with you this month.  But don't worry we'll be back at it again in June!  This time it's an anything goes post. Take a look....


Yes, once again I have made a Christmas card.  I'm actually behind in my Christmas card making this year.  Anyway, I broke out this awesome Christmas Reindeer stencil and sponged on the Pool to Navy ombre inks by Hero Arts.  Then, before removing the stencil, I splattered some white acrylic paint and I stamped several small snowflakes (Vignette: Christmas Block set) in silver Delicata ink.  Then I stamped the sentiment (Framed Christmas: Believe in the Magic set) which I masked off the part that said "in the Magic".  I attached my panel to a dark blue card base and added a narrow strip of silver glitter tape.  I love how this turned out and will definitely be recreating it for my Mom's stash.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #135

First, I stamped the lighthouse (True North set) in Walnut Stain Distress ink.  I coloured it in with my Prismacolour pencil crayons (white and brown).  Then I created a mask and covered it up.  I splatter Walnut Stain ink over top.  I stamped the sentiment (Fond Expressions 2 set) on a piece of white cardstock and added a strip of aqua cardstock underneath.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #134

Good morning!  Once again it's rainy here and a bit chilly. It's not been a particularly nice Spring so far. A ton of rain and too cold. Our neighbour is a farmer (grows the best strawberries and potatoes!) and he hasn't been able to plant anything yet. Not good. ☹️  We are supposed to get some super warm weather the end of the week so hoping that helps him.

Anyway, it's time for another inspiration post over at STAMPlorations!  This week we are showcasing our fabulous STAMP girl, Deepti's stamps.  I love her wonderful images. Such variety and versatility. Here's my card....


First, I stamped the flowers (Smile set) and coloured them in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Then I added a strip of washi tape. Now, I'd never used this washi tape before and so I didn't realize that it was semi-transparent so the flower stamping I'd done was showing through. It looked terrible so I cut a strip of white cardstock and put that underneath the tape. Much better!  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment (Just Because set) in black.
