Soar high

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share another Bloom Cutups ATC card, done with STAMPlorations new paper goods product. I´ve shared a card yesterday and this is another one done with the same paper goods product line.

There is a total of 14 new products in this product category at the STAMPLorations store and more will be added bit by bit. So stay tuned for more awesome paper goods in the future.

For this card I used the same products like on my previous cards from yesterday: Art Marks #3 stamp set, New Day clear stickers, Art Marks #1 border die and the Bloom Cutups ATC paper goods. This time I used a gelli printed DIY background as a base and added the stamping, the border die a well as the Bloom Cutup and the sentiment on top. So this card is again full-on mixed media crazy :). Just the way I like it!

Also do stop by the STAMPlorations blog for more inspiration project shares around the new peper goods collection as well as the store to getyourself some of your own :)!

Wishing you all a lovely day and happy crafting,

May Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to the STAMPlorations May Stencil Challenge reveal. It´s again an new, fresh, month and that always means that new challenges go live on STAMPlorations! I hope I can inspire you to join in with us at the Stencil challenge this month with my happy card.

For the May challenge I played with my Gelli Arts gel plate and my stencils. I love doing these mixed media backgrounds using the stencils. It´s always so exciting to see what kind of results come of out gel printing play time. This is also a really fun way of playing with ones stencils, by the way :).

For this one I used the Peacock Feathers stencil from my stencil line at STAMPlorations in combination with a gelli plate and skin toned and orange toned acrylic paints. After creating the background I did a few smaller prints with a set of small square gel plates and Art Marks 3 stamp set by STAMPlorations. The then became the background for the stamped flower images. Which were stamped with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and black stamp ink.

After that I just fussy cut the images and created the flower cluster onto the card. For finishing touches I added a Clear Sticker (also by STAMPlorations) sentiment.

That´s it! Now is again your turn to get creative with stencils. Please remember to play by the rules!! They are always listed at the end of the challenge and are really simple to follow, so remember, if you want to be in for the prizes, play according to the rules :).

April stencil challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello and welcome to the STAMPlorations April Stencil Challenge Reminder reveal post! If you haven´t played along with us as the STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge yet, there is still time to do so :). I hope you inspire you to play along by sharing my contribution for the reminder post too!

This is my card for today´s post. I´ve used the Abstract Prehistoric Life stencil from my stencil line to create the two-toned background pattern with acrylic paints. On top of that there is a layer of Glimmer Mist in lime green.

And on top of the mist layer there is some random stamping in grey and black. The stamp is also by STAMPlorations and called „Art Marks 3„.

After creating the „background paper“ I adhered it onto a card base and added some beloved and old Sassafras stickers for decor in a cluster. On top of that I adhered a STAMPlorations Clear Sticker. That´s it!

Now is again your turn! Please make sure to follow the rules (they are listed at the end of the original challenge post). And now, be sure to check out everyone´s inspirational projects (we always hope they get your mojo going) and then do join in on some stencil fun with us!!!

And like always, feel free to use my discount code upon checkout at the STAMPlorations store for 20% off your order :).

March 2021 stamp release – STAMPlorations

Hi and welcome to the stamp release bonus day!! Today we are still continuing with the new STAMPlorations stamp release celebrations!

Here are my bonus projects, created with the Art Marks 3 stamp set:

For these cards I´ve used a gel plate from Gelli Arts with acrylic paints by Dina Wakley Media in combination with Shery´s new Art Marks 3 stamp set. After creating the gelli printed images, I´ve punched them with a circle punch into smaller sizes. Before adhering them on place I stamped some random images onto the card base with the same stamp set.

For finishing touches I added a few Clear Stickers – also by STAMPlorations. This way you can create a set of fun mixed media cards, when you first play with your gelli plate and then add just tiny pieces onto cards. This way a few prints go a long way. Just remember to immediately clean your clear stamps after pressing them into acrylic paint, so they don´t get damaged.

For my last card I used a background that I created with a brayer and acrylic paints and on which I added some Art Marks 3 stamped images with black ink. That creates a fun mixed media card background that does not need that much of decor, because the background on it´s own if very bold. So I added a vintage number tag and a Clear Sticker for detail. That´s it!

I hope you´ve enjoyed this weeks reveal party with the design team girls and over at the STAMPlorations blog. If you missed a day, there is still time to join in by commenting on the participants blogs and on the STAMP main blog. Find more details on the main blog here. Have fun hopping and getting inspired and good luck on winning some awesome prizes!!!

Happy crafting,
