Come and Look!

Lately I have been trying to find ways to stretch the uses of my stamps. I love to color but sometimes it is fun to use my stamps in different ways.

This week for my project at Crafter's Companion I decided to use one of my background stamps on the base of my card. I used the gorgeous Stamp-It EZMount Stamp - Wallpaper (by Micky Choo) from the Discovery Collection. I decided to stamp it out on kraft paper with clear ink and then I covered the ink with opaque white embossing powder.

Next, I pulled out my Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Provence sunflower stamp and did the same thing. I stamped it with clear ink and then embossed it with opaque white embossing powder.

Then I fussy cut out the flowers. I pulled some patterned paper from my stash and then used a cool edge punch along the bottom. I stamped out my sentiment on orange card stock and then cut it out in a banner shape. I added 3 pearls on the banner for a bit of bling and some ball fringe to the card just for fun.

I glued down two of my flowers directly to the base card and then I used double sided adhesive squares on the back of the other two flowers to give dimension to the card.

I want to let you know that the monthly challenge on the Crafter's Companion USA Challenge blog is "anything goes".  HELLO!!  Could it be any easier to try to win the prize of a $30 gift card to the Crafter's Companion Store?!  Go check it out and while you are there join in on this week's stamp set giveaway too.

I told you that I had made a layout last week.  Well here is it!  I used a Pagemaps sketch and some photos from our Spring break trip to southern California.

I used Webster's Palm Beach Collection.  I fussy cut the swim suits out of a piece of patterned paper and used my pop dots on the back of one to give a bit of dimension.  The cute little sun was from a RAK I won . 

I'm so happy you stopped by here today and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for more inspiration. Until next time...happy scrapping!
