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

Happy Sunday everybody! I didn't think I'd be entering this week's Hero Arts challenge but I was reading through my favorite blogs yesterday and was totally inspired by Jennifer Holmes . Love when that happens! Within a few hours I had this card put together. I had fun adding a few extra details. I curled the beak around a pencil to make it curve. Then put two layers of dimensional tape under the middle to support the shape. I also made accordion feet. These can fold flat for mailing. :) Materials: Hero Arts Stamps (Basic Lower & Upper Case Letters, Wavy Leaf Pattern, Many Hearts), Hero Arts Flowers, Hero Arts Button and Gems, Black Buttons, BoBunny Paper, String. Have a great day!
