It seems anymore I am picking up a stamp for about any project I am working on and I love it. I guess there is a degree of creativity that comes with stamping that I enjoy.
For my first card that I want to share, I am using the Black/White with a Splash of color challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
Not only is it a Simon Says stamp challenge but this adorable house and the cloud are exclusive Simon Says stamps. I stamped the house with white ink and embossed it with white embossing powder then I colored it in with a black Copic. I didn't do a great job of coloring because the next step was to take a black spray from Studio Calico and I gave it a good covering of the spray. The embossed lines acted as a resist, the result is so cool. The yellow background is done with the Tweed Hero Arts background stamp, inked with Distress Stain and then sprayed with water. The label shape is cut with the Cricut.
Next up, I am using the color combination from Colour Q. The combo seems to lend to a boyish theme but I wanted it to have a girlish theme so I pulled out this adorable Paper Smooches stamp.
The blue cardstock with the embossed letters is done with a PaperTrey, Inc impression plate. I took the cheater way of using this cute stamp by stamping it on kraft cardstock with white ink and embossing it with white. This way it only needs a tiny amount of coloring, really just some light gray shadow.Here is the Colour Q combo.
And for my final card, I wanted to use the CAS(E) this sketch. It is meant to be simple so that is always a fun challenge for me.
The flowers are stamps from Avery Elle Stamps and the sentiment is from the same Simon Says set as the house. The label is cut with the Cricut.This is the CAS(E) this sketch.
