More Inspiration: August Stamp Release
- And our Giveaway Winner! -

It's finally time for our inspiration blog hop! Today we have more project ideas using our new August stamp release. If you haven't had a chance to visit our shop and check out our collection click HERE. To all of you who have been part of our celebration,our designers and followers -old and new-, thanks for making of this new release a success!

My card for today features yet again one of my favorite stamp sets from the new collection: Sent with a Prayer. I am using again the leaf images as embellishments (printed and foiled on acetate), thanks to the help of a Samsung laser printer, a Mini Minc machine and Deco foil transfer sheets. The sentiment from the same stamp set was printed and then foiled with matte black Deco Foil to add even more contrast against the brown cardstock.




I layered all the elements on this design on a vintage patterned paper panel, that I aged even more applying ink sprays in Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and also some Pan Pastel in Titanium White. I also used DecoArt Media white crackle paint on the flowers and then I watered it down a bit to add some droplets to the flowers and part of the card panel.

The flowers, laces, ribbons and twine from May Arts Ribbon gave lots of texture to this Fall inspired card. I also added pieces of a stunning vintage washi tape from the Eyelet Outlet here and there. Other embellishments such as the gold buttons, big pearls and wood clip finish the look of the flower cluster. I foiled the metal gear embellishment using Deco Foil Adhesive Pen and a piece of Deco Foil transfer sheet to match the gold on the leaves.

I hope you are inspired by the array of projects the designers have prepared for you today. Follow the links below to check out how they used the new stamps from this month's release!

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home. White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with you HERE . I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern. As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial  HERE ) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large h

Video Tutorial: Quick New Year's Card with Simple Stories & Deco Foil

I'm back with a fun and really easy to make card for the Holidays or the New Year and I have a video tutorial with Therm O Web today. I'm sure we all are rushing at the very last minute looking for tags and cards and wrapping gifts... I know I always am. That is why my latest Holiday projects have been on the quick and easy side so you can try them out if you need to! The usual theme for New Year's cards is usually monochromatic, metallic... But, what if we used colorful Holiday colors instead? Why not? Well, this time you'll see me use papers from Simple Stories Very Merry Collection. Video Tutorial This is short and sweet video tutorial where I show you how I put together this card. Really with card designing the hard part is figuring out what you want your card to look like in the end but once you have figured out what elements you'll be adding and where you will be placing them the card comes together pretty fast. So the behind the scenes may not ha
