STAMPlorations Guest Designer

Good afternoon all.



Thrilled to be Guest Designing for STAMPlorations today after having a card chosen as a top pick in April. This months challenge is Stamps and Washi...you don't have to use STAMPloration stamps on your creation (though they love it when you do!).


I've made a gift tag with matching paper.


Stamp sets used: Celebrate Artsy,Trendy Butterflies,Mixed Media Grunge,Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds and the Confetti Circles Stencil on the wrapping paper. Washi tape, bee charm and twine from my stash.

Lengths of black and white tape were added randomly to the kraft tag which was then gessoed and once dry I added Vanilla acrylic with my fingers. Stamps were inked with various distress and black Archival inks. The teal and black washi was added and the HB2U was stamped with versamark and heat embossed. I then added some white gesso with my fingers to soften the tag.


The recycled wrapping paper was randomly stencilled and stamped using distress inks.

Challenges entered:
Scrap and Craft - tag it
2 Creative Chicks - any thing goes (but a card)
ABC Challenge - K is for kritters
Altered Eclectics - anything goes
One Crazy Stamper - anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge - add a charm
All Crafts Challenge - anything but a card
Not Just Cards - anything goes
613 Avenue Create - anything goes opt subway art
