Lets Get a Little Whimsical with our Stamping

Hi Everyone!

Well as the clock ticks down and it gets ever closer to the month of October I started looking through my stamps and found I own quite a few arty funky stamps by some amazing artist like Lynne Parrella and Diana Wakely so I thought it would be fun to do some greeting cards using these stamps and came up with just a few and thought I would share them with you. 


BEAUTIFUL DREAMER CARD
by
Leanne Seed

For all my cards I stuck with primary colors to give it a circus kind of feeling. For this card I used my ink blending tool to add color to my stamped area and streaked on distress inks in Wild Honey, Festive Berries, and Lemonaid then added just a touch of stickles to the famed area.



BEAUTIFUL GIRL CARD

Leanne Seed

For this card I painted in the stamp with water color pencils then went back over the areas of her dress using diffrent color Stickles. I also used multiple color inks on a cup cake doillie using my blending tool and with the back ground paper created pockets for colorful tags to slip into.



FLOWER POWER CARD

With this one I filled in the stamp area with water color pencil and placed a paper flower behind her head to create a great halo effect. I cheated a bit when it came to the green scallop piece and used one of the flat scallop card toppers I purchased at Archivers.



TIME TO SMILE CARD
by
Leanne Seed

So everyone needs a card that will make them smile and when I saw this little clock man I knew I had to use him on this card. I stamped him in the center of an oval frame stamp then swiped on diffrent colors by Distress ink (peacock, spiced marmalade and wild honey) and again I used a pre scalloped card topper I got at Archivers but you can use a die cut or punch just as well. Then I finished it with a bit of May Arts Ribbon.

All these stamps can be obtained through the Stampington Shop Online.
So let your inner child come out and play and create something whimsical for yourself!
Happy Scrapping
Leanne
