More Inspiration: August Stamp Release – And our Giveaway Winner! –

It’s finally time for our inspiration blog hop! Today we have more project ideas using our new August stamp release. If you haven’t had a chance to visit our shop and check out our collection click HERE. To all of you who have been part of our celebration,our designers and followers -old and new-, thanks for making of this new release a success!

My card for today features yet again one of my favorite stamp sets from the new collection: Sent with a Prayer. I am using again the leaf images as embellishments (printed and foiled on acetate), thanks to the help of a Samsung laser printer, a Mini Minc machine and Deco foil transfer sheets. The sentiment from the same stamp set was printed and then foiled with matte black Deco Foil to add even more contrast against the brown cardstock.

I layered all the elements on this design on a vintage patterned paper panel, that I aged even more applying ink sprays in Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and also some Pan Pastel in Titanium White. I also used DecoArt Media white crackle paint on the flowers and then I watered it down a bit to add some droplets to the flowers and part of the card panel.

The flowers, laces, ribbons and twine from May Arts Ribbon gave lots of texture to this Fall inspired card. I also added pieces of a stunning vintage washi tape from the Eyelet Outlet here and there. Other embellishments such as the gold buttons, big pearls and wood clip finish the look of the flower cluster. I foiled the metal gear embellishment using Deco Foil Adhesive Pen and a piece of Deco Foil transfer sheet to match the gold on the leaves.

I hope you are inspired by the array of projects the designers have prepared for you today. Follow the links below to check out how they used the new stamps from this month’s release!
