Hello! We are so excited today because Happy Little Stampers is having a blog hop to celebrate the First Release Stamps!
Join in the fun and hop along because there are 5 prizes to be given away. The grand prize for one lucky commenter is the entire release!
You should have come to my blog from the Happy Little Stampers Blog. If not, that's ok. You can hop through in any order but make sure not to miss any.
Here is the list of participants so you can see there is going to be a truck load of inspiration!
My first card is using the Mixed Christmas Sentiments set. Perfect for any style of card making!
"Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly". This sentiment that I have embossed in gold is perfect for my little holly cluster.
My next card uses a very simple piece of off cut from a brusho piece I had created. I then stencilled over the top with embossing paste through a stencil. I popped up my die cut trees with the sentiment.
Next up is the Bold Birthday Sentiments
I used a Mini Mister (available at the HLS shop). I combined a ink from a reinker and water to create my own ink spray. I sprayed directly onto the front of my card. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment and added black sequins and Rhinestones (available from the HLS shop). I love pink and black together :)
My next cards use the Big Bold Numbers set which is perfect to combine with the Bold Birthday Sentiments set :)
I used some DP for the background and then stamped with Memento Luxe ink. I die cut the 't' and 'h' and popped them up with little foam squares cut down to size. Next I added a heap of Rhinestones.
For my next card I stamped the Happy and 21 and then die cut my panel with the 's' and the 't' and a few stars so I could have my glitter paper showing through the negatives. Another great way to combine the two stamp sets!
Last but not least is Butterfly Birthday.
I created my background by using the Acrylic Block Stamping Technique. I inked up my block and wet it using my Mini Mister. I also created my splats using the acrylic block (you can see my tutorial HERE). I stamped my butterfly onto a piece of scrap watercolour paper that I had already inked up and fussy cut it out. It has been popped up with foam tape. The Pearls (available at the HLS shop) were the finishing touch :)
Using distress inks, I covered my panel and then misted water onto a stencil (a gift from Loll) and pressed it onto the paper. My 'ghosting' technique didn't work so well for my first time but I actually really loved it in the end. I inked up a snippet of card stock with the same Distress Inks, stamped my butterfly and fussy cut it out. I've popped it up with foam squares. More pearls on this one :)
For this card, I placed my stencil on on my piece of watercolour cardstock and then pounced my versamark pad all over. I then embossed with a clear powder. Using brushos in a paint tray, I added the colours with a brush. I also embossed the sentiment onto a piece of vellum.
Here is a recap of the products that I have used from Happy Little Stampers.
I hope you have been inspired by the new release stamps from Happy Little Stampers. Next up is Loll!
