I have been sitting on some news that has me about to pop with sheer excitement... Oh, my goodness, would you believe.... Melanie Muenchinger asked me a couple of weeks ago to be her Guest Designer for her new stamp set Inspiration Mosaic. Oh course, I squealed (hubby thought I was crazy!), did a little dancing jig (not a pretty sight!), and jumped at the opportunity!
When she showed me this set, I was AMAZED. There is nothing like it anywhere that I have seen and I was so excited to get the chance to design with this very unique stamp set.
I have two projects to share today, the first card is using exclusively the stamp set Inspiration Mosaic.
I created this card using the masking technique and wanted to use all of the larger shapes included in this set. For the sentiments (which how meaningful are they??) I used the Memories Autumn Rainbow ink pad (just a spectrum ink pad I bought years ago). I wanted to keep with those colors as much as possible so used various Earth Elements classic ink to to mask all of these shapes. A couple of simple layers and I was done....
This card I created using the masking technique as well as the large dauber sponges to sponge on the color in the various blocks. I wanted to keep it more CAS so tried not to make it too busy with images. I used the smaller dandelion from Many Wishes and added just a bit of Black Gingham ribbon.
This stamp set is so versatile. This set is the perfect complement to my stamp collection and is one I know I will use a LOT! Today I have focused mainly on masking, but the techniques you can use with this stamp set are limitless. I want to thank Melanie for choosing me to Guest Design for her this month and giving me this most creative opportunity. I am having a blast!!! Now I have more ideas I want to try, hhhhmmm, hope the little one takes a good nap today! :o)
