Today I am excited to share with you 3 cards I made using the new stamp sets from Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps.
The first card uses stamps from the set Feeling Yucky which will be available tomorrow January 16th. This set has so many cute images and fun to use. I first stamped the poor little ducky who is crying on white cs with Tuxedo Black Memento and colored it with Copic markers. I then stamped the Campbell Soup Nurse and injection onto another piece of white cs, colored them with copics and cut the images out. I then die cut the duck and pink matting with the Labels2 nesty. This panel was the mounted on the centre panel. Behind the centre panel I placed some lace border punched DP and proceeded to mount that onto the background DP from BasicGrey. Added some Prima flowers, punch ferns and stickers from the Feel Better sticker collection of Hearthwarming Vintage stickers.
The next card uses stamps from the Sweet Stuff stamp set which is now available for purchase from Shopatron. Again this is another cute stamp set with so many possibilities. The card was also made for the Wednesday sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. The image of the Little Girl digging in to the cookie jar was stamped 4 times on different DP from the Radiant Paper Design of Crafty Secrets, cut out and pieced together. Hair, face and arms were colored with Copic markers. Cookie cutters were stamps on a white cs sponged with copper ink, then cut out and topped with liquid embossing.
The final card I am sharing with you tonight is from the Chandelier Fun stamp set which will also be available tomorrow. I stamped the chandelier on white cs with Tuxedo Black Versafine, colored it with Copic markers and then proceeded to cut all around the image. Wow, did that take a lot of patience. I used a surgical scalpel to cut around the tiny spaces and scissors for the edges of the chandelier. I also stamped the light bulbs on white cs, colored it with Copics and cut them out. After that I used an Antique Glass Finish liquid embossing on top of the images and let it dry. Once they were all dry I mounted the chandelier and all the light bulbs onto white cs that I sponged with Daffodil and Walnut stain distress ink. Die cut the purple scallop square and mounted that onto my background DP from the Classic Paper Design of Crafty Secrets. Used a sentiment from the same stamp set which I stamped on white cs that was again sponge with Daffodil and Walnut stain. Used the Ribbon Label trio from Spellbinders and held it on with ribbon. Punch holes all along the edge of the background DP and drew lines from one hole to another to make it look like stitches.
