Featured Stamp: Whumsy Daisy by Endless Creations

This Duo shows two simple cards that illustrate the elegance of two flowers and a sentiment. I also found this stamp at the convention I attended in Orlando last month. I had to have it! The neat feature of this stamp in it had one flower on one side of the wooden block and the reversed image on the back. It's like two stamps for the price of one!

Duo #1 - Features the Whumsy Daisy stamp. I used perfect plum and glorious green pens to color in the flowers and stems. I cut the ovals using my Cricut once in white and one a slight bit bigger in black. I finished it off with whisper white ribbon and a small sentiment "for you".

Duo #2 - I used the same stamp. I used pink pirouette and glorious green pens and paper. The sentiment is called Precious Gift by Stampendous. (2002) I used the same stamp on the background using color-on-color technique. Love that! Enjoy! See you soon!


Featured Stamp: Rose by Local King Rubber Stamp

This company is very quickly becoming my favorite small line of stamps. I can never pass by their booth without falling in love with a dozen stamps. The cool thing about their line, is most of the more complicated images come with a matching die. The technique they feature at the table is to use water based markers as randomly and as messily (is that a word?) as you can, and the images come out amazingly! Here is my duo for you to enjoy!

Duo on the left features the Rose stamp and its matching die by Local King Rubber stamp. I used Stampin up! paper with tumbled glass distress ink by ranger. The over was sponged with a mini ink pad that I have had for years. I am not sure if versacolor makes the heliotrope color anymore. I used the en francais and perfect words (hostess) sets. I added blue rhinestone and a touch of blue fiber for the tag.

Duo on the right uses the Rose stamp as its focus. The purple beneath it is another mini pad I had from Ancient page dye (foxglove) with another  Local King Rubber  background stamp called Happiness. I popped the background using an embossing folder, but before I ran it through my cuttlebug, I inked the negative side with some tumbled glass distress ink. and touched the edges up with black. (don't see the small smear...opps) I am still learning!  :)

Enjoy, and see you soon!
