Counting Blessings Fun

Happy Saturday all!  My “Stamp of Approval” box, “Counting Blessings” arrived filled with all kinds of crafty goodness this past week.

I got to sit down and just create and get inky this week so I thought I’d share the three cards I created with you today.

This first card is my favorite card of all three.  I chose to make an almost monochromatic card using only “It’s a Boy” and “Fiesta BlueCatherine Pooler Inks.  I did use a little of the “Black Jack” ink to stamp my image and create my striped grey back ground.  I had a blast masking and layering all the fun stamps from this collection.

For my second card I knew I wanted to use some of amazing leaf stamps in the box. I stamped my leaves using “Tiara”, “Tiki Torch”, “Tuti Frutti” and also “Black Jack” inks. I used a variety of ink combos and layered up each leaf and then fussy cut them out.  I attached them using a fun line of white stitching.

For my final card, I knew I wanted to play with the tag die in the kit.  I had a blast using the tiny, elongated triangle stamp and the “Fiesta Blue”, “Sweet Sixteen” and “Melon Ice” (my favorite colour!) inks to create my little pattern on the tag topper. And took images from almost of all of the new stamp sets and created this fun layered beauty.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’re having a wonderful and creative weekend!
