Every month one of the Stamping Sensation Designers will share their five favorite stamps. It's my turn now. Oh boy... It's much more difficult then making a card. I have to admit that I failed. I am not able to choose five single stamps. I bring out five stamp sets and try to select favorite images in there.
I'll start with my favorite background stamp: Sparkle N Sprinkle Crackle Background. It's fabulous for adding pattern and texture to all kind of projects.
Crackle Background looks awesome on masculine cards. On this graduation card it's stamped again with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Clear Detail EP.
I love butterflies. I reach over and over again to the Hero Arts Butterflies #3 set. I can't choose which butterfly from the set is my favorite.
On following card I used butterflies as embellishments. They are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Promarkers and fussy cut.
I also love flourishes and swirls. I have many sets but Viva Décor Floral Embellishments I like most. My favorite stamp in there is the largest.
Here's a card with the large flourish and previously mentioned butterflies. Flourish is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and I added some stickles to it.
Sparkle N Sprinkle Shabby Chic Birdhouse is most gorgeous stamp set I have. I love these pretty images and beautifully designed sentiments.
The bird from this set is so adorable. It's perfect for spring cards. Here's one earlier card I used this image.
I also used the birdhouse and sentiment on a chocolate pocket card.
Here is one more beautiful stamp set - Sparkle N Sprinkle Dahlia. Again, I'm not able to choose one favorite stamp from the set - maybe two: largest flower and leaves. But they are all wonderful.
You can make awesome layering with those images. On following card, largest flower is popped up in four layers.
That's it! Full details of all the cards are linked to my blog.
Thank you for the visit!
Hugs & smiles,
