I am excited to share my display stamping creations with you! Let’s start with some ideas for the new set, Sea of Textures. I’ll admit this took me WAY out of my comfort zone. This set sat on my desk for three weeks before I made anything. I would stare at it thinking “what am I supposed to do with that?” But, I love a challenge and soon the ideas started coming.
I started pretty simple with this first card. I did a quick water color wash on water color paper in pool party. Next I stamped the octopus in Calypso Coral and fussy cut him out. (There are coordinating dies coming! Making it much easier to cut this guy out.) Next I gave him a little sign to hold. Finished off the card with some linen thread and a few of the clear epoxy shapes.
For this next card , I once again fussy cut that octopus out. (Again, wish I had the dies!) I thought having one tentacle coming out of the circle fit with the sentiment. Pool Party and Tranquil Tide pair well for a watery feel.
This next card I went for a very different look. I used Stampin’ Write markers to color the various color stripes directly on the stamp.
Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist help this card to really pop. Notice that little die cut the sentiment is on? That is from the new Stitched Label Framelits! If you look closely at the Lemon Lime Twist panel, you can see it is embossed with the new Maps Etc. Dynamic Textured Impressions folder.
Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you come back soon, I have 18 more projects to share. Happy Stamping!
