Stamp of Approval MasterClasses!

Hi!
The MasterClasses have begun at Stamp Nation!!!! Squee! First up is "Creative Mediums for Card Making" taught by Faber-Castell!

I wanted to share a card I created using some fantastic Faber-Castell products!


How great is all of that texture?!?!? I used Glass Bead Glitter Gel along with a Mixed Media Stencil.  Instead of using it as a stencil, I adhered it to the card base with the gel.  I laid the Gel on pretty thick and let it dry for a few hours.  It made everything so shimmery!!! Then, I scribbled with Iridescent Gelatos (colors Stardust, Galaxy and Blue Moon) and blended them together with my fingers and a paper towel.


To finish off the card, I used the "happy" die from Catherine Pooler's Spot On Sentiments die bundle and stamped "birthday" from the Simply the Best stamp set.

The Naturally Inspired Collection Blog Hop

Hi!


Welcome to today's Blog Hop! We are celebrating the newest Stamp of Approval Collection -- The Naturally Inspired Collection.  You should have arrived here from Catherine's Blog! I am so excited to be hopping today! I'm not even kidding - when I opened the box, I shrieked with excitement because I loved every.single. thing. that was inside! It was so easy to start creating! I didn't even need much inspiration.  And.. speaking of inspiration, what keeps YOU naturally inspired? For me, I find myself looking for patterns and colors in nature (and in stores, too), all the time for me to use in my projects.  I also go to Pinterest quite a bit; not for project ideas, but for color combos using photographs of things in nature!


The above card was inspired by this photograph:


To create this card, I used Simply the Best and Birds of a Feather Stamp Sets, WOW Wanderlust Embossing Powder, and Melon Ice and Grass Skirt Inks.


This card was created with Medallion Mix Up and Wild Garden Stamp Sets, Spiro Doily Die and Mint to Be, Melon Ice and Midnight Inks.



How fun is that die? I used Simply the Best and Birds of a Feather Stamp Sets, the Best Die and Party Dress, Its A Girl, Mint to Be, Pixie Dust and Sweet Sixteen Inks.


I used the masking technique to create this card.  I love the little array of flowers! I used Wild Garden and Simply the Best Stamp Sets, along with Grass Skirt, Bellini, Its A Boy, Midnight, Garden Party, Party Dress and Pixie Dust Inks.


The stamp-off (or second generation stamping) technique was used for this card.  I used Wild Garden and Simply the Best Stamp Sets with Midnight, Aquatini, Party Dress and Grass Skirt Inks.

I even have a video, sharing how I made it!!!
