Day 8 Part II


I used some basic circle stamps from various sets as well as the emblem image and text form Avery Elle’s All Squared Up set for this card. 


Day 5-6


I don’t have a lot of outline stamps, so I this isn’t quite like the class samples. Yet, the class did inspire me to use some of the solid stamps I had in a new way.

The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti, and I love it.

(In memory of my dear friend Jackie whom I have been missing for the past five months.)

Yes, it is Day 4

But this is a Day 2 card.


I had an opportunity to use some of the sprays that I have collected.  I used Mister Hueys, Fireworks and some from Firewerks.  The background stamp is from Basic Grey, and  the sentiment is from the June Studio Calico Card Kit.


I have not used my Pearlex on cards before, and I really like the effect. Well, this is the end of my posts on background techniques.  On to text, sentiments and Day 3 classes.

Continuing with my exploration of stamping,  here are a few more cards from Day 1, which I completed yesterday on Day 2.  Yes, I am already behind!


The floral background is a mystery stamp that I collected during my travels.  I’ve created a watercolor effect using Distress Inks.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle’s Geometric set.  The class sample created square tiles, and I decided to be different and used die cut circles.


This is an amazing stamp that I collected long ago from Stamp A Mania in Las Cruces, NM.  It is amazing, an it is still being sold!

Sorry about all the shadows, but it was a late night.
