Innovative Stamp Creations

Hi all! Hope you're having a wonderful Spring weekend!! I'm posting more cards that I made from the giant stash of rubber stamps I received from Betsy at Innovative Stamp Creations. Did I mention how much I love their images?? If you missed the earlier ones, I also posted some here at the beginning of the month. The first card features the very cool bird from the "You're Special" set, prolly one of my fav sets so far! I masked off the center area and created a background stamping the Wood Grain background stamp (which comes with 2 free images when you purchase it!!) and the Canvas background stamp over the mask. I removed the mask and stamped the bird in Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Colored it in with copics and added some red and yellow jewels (from Hobby Lobby). I cut out some swirly Sizzix corners and stamped the sentiment (also from the You're Special set) in the corner. I just love this bird!! Same bird...but this time stamped with Versamark onto velum and heat embossed with white EP. Threaded ribbon across the top to attach it to the card base, and finished off the bird with faux rhinestones by Jolees Jewels. Super simple!! The large sentiment on this card is from "You're Special" and the smaller sentiment and large dragonfly are from "Elegant Artsy Swirls" (I focused on that set earlier this month, it's another fantastic set of stamps!). I heat embossed the dragonfly with gold EP and added "Mother Lode" super fine glitter from Carter's Sequins. The background is DP by Crafty Secrets. The fab brad is from KC and Co. I created a ribbon tail for the brad using textured paper and some smaller brown brads. Thanks for checking in!!
