Hand Stamped Sentiments – Inspiration Challenge

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an inspiration challenge – an outdoor room by Pottery Barn.  There are so many things in the photo that provide inspiration.  What stood out for me were the trees and all the green.  I created a card with a blooming branch and bird.  Spring is so close and one of my favorite things about it is the greenery and the flowers blooming.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique Challenge – Resist Emboss

This week over at HSS we have a technique challenge – resist emboss.  It looks complicated but it is very easy.  My inspiration for my card this week came from Andy Warhol’s  work, Flowers.  I stamped the flower and cupcake images with Versamark on Whisper White CS then embossed the images with Stampin’ Emboss powder and set with SU heat tool.  I then used the Scallop Square punch to punch the images then sponged the color.  I used my Big Shot to texture the Melon Mambo background with the large dot Texturz Plate.  I used SU dimensionals to adhere the squares to the Melon Mambo background.  Next I adhered the Bermuda Bay background layer then adhered the Melon Mambo with the squares.  Then added the silver brads to the corners.  Very easy!  SCS has a tutorial for the resist emboss technique here.
