>>>IF SHAY CAN DO IT ANYONE CAN!<<<

Although I have been crafting and stamping for ages I am no expert.  That said you never ever need to be an expert to have fun and make great projects.  Let me show you!

I went pretty simple today because these products make it easy!  Of course like all w&w products, they really are versatile and you can get as fancy or as simple as you prefer (which you will see when looking at the awesome inspiration which follows my cards).

By the way, all the inks I used today are Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Card No. 1
shay_IMG_3931

True story: this was a very simple card that I really liked, but my hand slipped and the stamp fell onto my card and I got an extra center on one of the flowers.  I thought oh well I can restamp this which I did, but I just didn't like the other ones I did as much as the original.  In the end, I decided to go with the original...mistake and all.  With the mistake though meant the design had to be less clean and simple (I tried--I really did!).

I stamped the panel with the large 9 petal solid stamp in squeezed lemonade and fossilized amber, stamped with the rounded spiral in aged mahogany and the larger dotted center in weather wood.  I ended up using embossing paste with the Scenery: Pattern of the Rings Creative Screenings on part of the card front (top left and bottom right corners) especially over the boo boo.  I then added some drops of gold and a very light spray of Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in gold.  This was semi successful as the gold reacted differently with the embossing paste.  I added the In a Word: Kisses Cutaway from grey cardstock.  Last were some metallic gold sequins and star sequins.

Card No. 2
shay_IMG_3932

I picked out the smaller spiral stamp from the In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers and stamped it randomly in picked raspberry and then colored them in with watered down picked raspberry and added a dot of Stickles in crystal to the centers.  I set the panel aside overnight.  I used clear ZIG Wink of Stella over each flower for more needed shimmer.  I then cut out a rectangle of the panel using a cutaway premiering tomorrow.  I stamped the sentiment from Sparkle on a card base using spun sugar and picked raspberry having used the pink floral rectangles to determine placement.  To each of the floral rectangles I added a strip of the link or chain cutaway from Goldie Trim Cutaways behind it for a little added detail.  I then added the floral rectangles to the card base with foam dimensional adhesive.

Card No. 3
shay_IMG_3934

In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers is perfect for creating custom backgrounds and the options are really endless.  I used the tulip looking stamp and went around rotating it to make bigger flowers alternating between peacock feathers and mermaid lagoon.  The centers are stamped with the fun ray-like stamp using fossilized amber and mustard seed and then I filled in the white space with the larger circle stamp in mustard seed and the smaller circle stamp in fossilized amber.  Finished this off with a strip of cardstock adhered with foam dimensional adhesive and stamped with a special stamp set premiering tomorrow in fossilized amber and peacock feathers.  Last are metallic gold sequins added to the centers of the flowers and this card is done!

>>>THE GOOD STUFF<<<
