Innovative Stamp Creations

Are you ready? Do you love realistic nature images? Well, the next 4 days will surely jump start your creative juices! The Creative Architects were challenged to create unique card folds with these new lines! Enjoy… I opted for an altered art piece for my 1st project as they are so popular right now.

This is a typical shadowbox frame you can pick up at most any craft store. I had this one in my stash just begging to be altered! I stamped Spanish Script from Favorite Flowers (which you will be seeing tomorrow) on Basic Grey dp and distressed the edges. The 2 flowers are also in that set and the butterflies are from Beautiful Flowers II and Beautiful Flowers III I used dp again and used the Script stamp again as my bg and then embossed my Butterflies from Set II and III. Everything is popped up on dimensionals. My circle sentiment is from Beautiful Flowers II and says you make me laugh Added some dew drops and a bit of glitter.

This card measure 8.5 " by 4 ". I went with a more Clean and Simple look to this card for those of you who enjoy this style. I took a panel of white cs and added smudges of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Dried Marigold Distress Inks. I crumpled it up and added a bit more. I then spritzed with water. I let it completely dry and then distressed the edges and ironed it. I used the gorgeous butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies II and III and stamped them with Memento Ink and added a black rhinestone to their body. I then used Diamond Glaze and added Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter so IRL this card is very sparkly. The sentiment stamp is included in this set along with one which says you`ve been in my thoughts. It also includes a larger butterfly. Added a white panel on the inside and added a corner punch.
I hope you like my use of these fabulous sets which you will be able to find at Innovative Stamp Creations
