Sometimes I get so lost in techniques, and forget to enjoy making cards with only stamping as the focus. So, I tried..once again.. to make cards using stamping only. 🙂
I first stamped Altenew Lacy Scrolls using Hero Arts Bubble Gum and Memento Tangelo on some scrap card stock – and couldn’t resist shading them a little using my Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils.
I then stamped the WPlus9 Borders & Backgrounds 4 using Memento Tuxedo Black on another panel and cut it diagonally. After placing all the pieces on my card base, I stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches Bold Buzzwords in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then adhered all the pieces on the card base.

For my second card, I first stamped Darice Music Notes on a card panel using Hero Arts Charcoal ink. I then stamped the flowers from My Favorite Things Mini Modern Blooms using Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe, ColorBox Scarlet, Hero Arts Neon Blue, Hero Arts Charcoal and Memento Tuxedo Black inks, fuzzy cut them. I then trimmed the music score panel, cut out a circular window from it using Mama Elephant So Sew die and arranged the flowers and leaves around it.
I then stamped My Favorite Things Pinstripes on a portion of the card base and mounted the panel on top, along with a strip of black. The sentiments are from Love and Adore You die and Some Bunny stamp set from My Favorite Things. Finally added some silver sequins for embellishing along with some silver stickles for the flower centers.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
