more new cards

Some more new stamps that I got at a garage sale. I absolutely love house mouse stamps. This one is just so fun. I colored the image using colored pencil and goo gone. It gives a great soft look to the image. I added the sentiment on punched circles and a scalloped square. Red stickles was added to the sentiment for some sparkle.Monochromatic cards are so great. This is what I came up with for a monochromatic look. I did the two different cuttlebug embossings on white core paper, so the designs show up when sanded. It is so easy but looks great. I just added simple black twill ribbon and the stamped image. There is a little half pearl in the corner of the stamped panel, too.
I just love these fun little owl stamps from Hero Arts. I had to have them and had to make something with them right away. I stamped the branch multiple times using green ink and colored it in with brown colored pencil. The owls are colored with colored pencil and goo gone. I added the scalloped piece behind the owl piece and attached pink ribbon and a little prima flower. The background paper is from the Target dollar spot. I think it goes well with these little owls.

Cards Again!

It's been so long since I've updated my blog. I've been stamping like crazy for a while and haven't had time to blog. So here are some of the cards I've been working on. I got some new stamping supplies and wanted to play with them. This is what I came up with using a new quote set from Heidi Grace and these beautiful paper flowers (that I got at a garage sale!). I embossed the background with my new textile embossing folder.
This card uses a new technique that I learned from SplitcoastStampers called stained glass. It is such a fun technique and has beautiful results. For this technique, you stamp an image with stazon on acetate. Then you color it in (on the back side of the acetate) with crystal effects and reinkers. So cool and easy to do!
This is another card using the stained glass technique. It's so much fun to make these cards. They take a little bit longer than normal cards, but so worth the extra time. I used white stazon refill on this one to get the opaque snow look. It turned out pretty cool.
