Stamping on Wood

Hi Everyone! While in a stamp store a couple of months ago I made the most wonderful discovery! Wood! Mabye its been there all along and I never noticed it. But this time I did and I had to have it. Now its been sitting on self for a long time waiting and waiting. I didn't want to waste it after all. At last I decided to be brave and created this card.

First I stamped Penny Black's Inclinations using Memories Dye Ink on to the wood panel. I also used a few other fun techniques on this card. To create the flower I stamped Burst of Blue, then filled it in with text using a sentiment from HERE. Finally to add color to the flower and mat around the wood I inked up an acrylic block with Distress Ink, sprayed it with water and then layed the acrylic block over the paper (a trick I learned from Lisa Spangler -thanks!).
Finally, for those of you that might be interested the wood I used is by Creative Imaginations. It is called "real wood thin cherry" and is a veneer backed by paper (makes for easy cutting).

Hope you get creative with a few of these ideas! I'd love to see what you come up with if you stamp on wood. Send me a link!

Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited for today's blog hop! This collaboration set is amazing and I can't wait to see how all of the talented designers used it today and how YOU will use it! To create my card I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring several of the images from Peek a Boo Pals Camp Wanna Stamp (love that name!). It's available HERE with stamps and dies or HERE with just stamps.  Next, I blended and splashed ink on a piece of cardstock to create the background. Then, I stamped the lightening bugs and added their glow, along with coloring their wings white. TIP: I used a Q-Tip to add just a small amount of Distress Oxide to make the bugs glow.  Finally, I added the sentiment and adhered everything to a card base. This set is amazing and it's PACKED full of images! There are still more images that I can't wait to stamp. Check out the set... Next up is Heather Campbell . She is SO talented, I'm sure you'll love what she created. Finally, it wou

Mama Elephant: October Anniversary Stampede!

It's Mama Elephant Birthday Stampede time!  This is so awesome, right? I'm so excited you've joined me from Stephanie's blog! Today I'm a sharing a lot of stamping goodness! Now that I'm counting, my card uses 4 new Mama Elephant stamp sets ! This card all started with the sentiment. My kids are always buzzing around the house singing and one of their favorite is Everything is Awesome (Lego Movie anyone?). :) I started with a faint pencil line to create AWESOME from the new Block Party Letters . I colored them in with Copics and then did some creative masking and stamping from Happy Everything to add the beginning of the sentiment. Next I stamped the penguin and hat (from the new Artic Penguins ), colored them and die cut them for a perfect cut. The soft, grey striped background was created using the new Boutique Borders . All stamps and dies can be purchased NOW at the Mama Elephant store HERE . Next up? The very talented JJ Bolton !
