Simply Create and Craft Stamper E-Zine
Just a couple of things to share with you today. The first being a card I made for the Simply Create DT. Jacqui sent us some Hero Arts stamps to play with. I received the 'Leaf Clusters' set. I admit to being a little bit stumped as to what to do. However I am always inspired by the beautiful work on the Hero Arts blog and often wish I could create cards like that.
Sometimes I feel that I get stuck in a style rut...that I HAVE to stamp and colour an image. So I found that recently on the Hero Arts blog that Shari Carroll had created a video on how to do multi layered backgrounds. So I followed her video tutorial using the materials and stamps that I had to hand and came up with this.
I will tell you briefly how the card was made but if you want full info and details you can watch her video here!
I firstly stamped and heat embossed in white the Friendship definition background stamp from SU!. I then inked and misted my acrylic block with Frayed Burlap to created the background. I then stamped, and misted the Leaf Clusters in various Distress Ink colours and stamped on top of the background stamp.
Secondly I want to point you in the direction of very inspiring freebie! Craft Stamper have put together a FREE downloadable e-zine of the best projects from 2010 as voted for by readers. It contains 12 complete step by step projects. Feel free to take the button on my sidebar and if you post it on your own blog and then leave a comment on the Craft Stamper blog, there is some blog candy up for grabs.
Thats all from me folks!
Have a great weekend!
