Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! We are celebrating the March 2021 stamp release at STAMPlorations this week!! Today it´s time to showcase the Art Marks 3 clear stamp set, designed by Shery Russ!!!
For the first card above I´ve used Distress Oxides in two tones on the background to stamp the repeated leaf pattern. On top of that is a Gelli Arts gelli printed acrylic image, where I´ve used the second leaf pattern from the stamp set, when gelli printing. You hopefully can see a hint of that pattern in the green and blue toned paint circle. I´ve then die cut the piece with a circle die cut die and added a doilie die cut piece underneath it and decorated the circle with Clear Stickers (also by STAMPlorations) and added a few older American Crafts paper flowers for additional decor. Now, yellow is one of my favorite colours, so I´m happy I could use them for this card.
For the second card (above) I´ve added a repeated stamping pattern with the heart stamp from the same stamp set using Distress Oxide stamp inks. The circle in the middle is again done with a gel plate (I´ve used the confetti stamp there, but I doesn´t show that much due to my colour choices). A die cut doilie underneath and again a Clear Sticker as a sentiment and two older American Crafts paper flowers for decor. This, by the way would make a great Mother´s Day card, too. So I might just use it for that purpose later :).
The last card I done using the same leaf stamp, like on the first card, but this time I used primary colours. The little red half circles are from the same stamp set and add a nice detail to the background. For a focal point I´ve added some older stickers, just because they perfectly match the colour comtination on the background, and decorated the circle stickers with Clear Stickers from STAMPlorations and a few buttons from my older stash.
The Art Marks 3 stamp set can be used to create nice card background and by changing to colour the look will always be different! I really love this stamp set for it´s versatility. It´s also perfect for tagmaking, art journal pages and anything mixed media – not only cardmaking. I hope I could inspire you with my cards today.
Wishing you all good luck on the prizes!!! Go to the STAMPlorations blog for all the details and remember to comment, to be in for the prizes :).
