Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenges Challenge #026

Hello and welcome. You are currently visiting Karen Farquhar from Australia for the Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges. For challenge #026 we have a Sketch Challenge. I love sketch challenges because when your mojo is a little low I find they can work as an inspiration springboard.

For my projects I have applied my Shimmery White Embossing Paste to create a subtle pretty background.

  The stamp set, framelits dies and designer series paper are from the Frosted Floral Suite. Just one of the beautiful products in our new 2018 Holiday catalogue released this week. See the sidebar to the right to download your copy. 

 To make the heart shapes I folded a piece of paper in half and cut 1/2 a heart shape on the fold. I then opened the paper out and used both the cut out heart and it's negative left in the paper as paper masks for both cards. I just placed my card fronts and paper masks under my Pattern Party Decorative Mask and spread my embossing paste over the mask.  

This 3"x 3" gift card is made from unused stamped gems floating around my craft table. The gorgeous water coloured effect is a feature of this stamp set but I have enhanced the effect by using the Baby Wipe technique which I will showcase more in a future post.

Thank you for visiting me today. Please, you are more than welcome to enter your projects for the Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges here. We really would love to see your creations. Also pop over for a visit to see the projects of other talented stampers.
