Stamping Sensation August challenge

It's time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. This month we have super easy theme: Anything goes. 
As always you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, all we ask is that as our name suggest we do want to see some stamping as a focal element of your work, entries not fitting that  requirement may well receive comments from the DT but those entries will not be eligible for the prize and Top 3 spots.

Tonic Studios are our lovely sponsors this month, they are synonymous with quality and precision cutting products from scissors to punches, guillotines to dies and also a range of clear stamp sets and design paper pads as well. Their products are available from many High Street craft stores and frequently feature on Create and Craft TV. Here is the wonderful prize of  the newly released matching punch and die set Twisted Twine 674e and 584e with a rrp of £39,98....

I needed a quick card and I just didn't had any ideas what to make so I cased (or more like copied) a fantastic card by Kristina Werner.First I didn't plan to share it but then I thought it is a good chance to share how to make an stamps your self.

The leaves a are made with Fun Foam and a die from Spellbinders Sprigs set. Sprig is cut in pieces and adhered to a clear plastic (package of the dies). Then I put some drops of Tombo Multi -Talent Liquid Glue behind the plastic, let it dry and you have a stamp ready to use on your projects. 

All the stamping is done with the VersaMark ink and heat embossed with a Clear Detail embossing powder. Everything is colored with Distress Inks. I added some "raindrops" with Glossy Accents. The fern is made with air-dry clay and Martha Stewart silicon mold. 

You have until 3rd August to participate in the challenge.

  3. oooooooooooh! How lovely! Eret, I simply never tire visiting your artsy blog - I ponder "how did she think of doing that?" every time. Your techniques are so diverse, and I am always inspired. Rosiland Solomon would love what you did with her Dahlias. This is incredible. Thank you for sharing how you put it together, and for introducing me to Tonic Punches! Wow! How beautiful they are! hugs, de

  4. I wondered how you'd done the fern, Eret! It's so pretty. And making your own leaf stamps, a great idea! Altogether a really lovely card!
