Stre-e-tch your Stamps Challenge #7


Good Morning! 
 
So glad to be back home. Loved the break but home is always where the heart is. 
This time I managed to visit a scrapbooking shop and buy some essentials.
I had taken some craft supplies with me and made couple of cards for A Blog Named Hero Challenge #7-Stre-etch Your Stamps.

I chose Luscious Bold Flower stamps to make my projects. I have embossed the Luscious Bold flowers, cut them out and layered them as a focal point for the first card. I also love the plaid background stamp for the background.

Supplies:
Cardstock: White cardstock from Wplus9. Tempting Turquoise from SU
Stamp Sets: Luscious Bold Flowers set, Essential Messages and Plaid background set from Hero Arts
 Inks: Lemon Drops from Jenni Bowlin. Archival Jet Black ink and Colourbox Frost White Ink
Accessories: Rhinestones from Kaisercraft, White embossing powder and heat gun. 
 In this card, I have stamped the Plaid background stamp in the same yellow colour but used the Luscious Bold Flowers as background layering on top of the Plaid. Accented the large flower using rhinestones. The focal element becomes the sentiment here.

Supplies:
Cardstock: White cardstock from Wplus9
Stamp Sets: Luscious Bold Flowers set, Essential Messages and Plaid background set from Hero Arts
 Inks: Spice Tin and Lemon Drops from Jenni Bowlin. Archival jet Black Ink.
Accessories: Rhinestones from Kaisercraft

 Here are both the cards together.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

I am working with some gorgeous new goodies to be released tomorrow. 
Hope you can join me for the release.

Got to go and get Charlie from the Kennel now.

Have a great day!

Ta!
