I Brake for Stamps Design Team!!!

Hi everyone. I've got some news to share with you today YIPPPPPPPPY!!!!!

I'm so stinkin excited to be a part of the fantastic team at I Brake for Stamps. When Della got a hold of me to ask if I would be interested, I am pretty sure I squealed like a piggy. I've had the opportunity to work with these beautiful images before, and I hope that our journey together will inspire you.

Today I'm sharing with you two projects that I've created. The first is an artistic tag. For this tag I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Distress Crackle Paint to create the backgrounds on both the tag and the Basically Bare Chipboard Hearts. After the paint was dry, I stamped the beautiful Floral Silhouette Bouquet onto the hearts using Versamark, then embossed them with a pretty Pewter embossing powder. The image is very soft, but adds to the tag perfectly. To add a little pop of colour, I used these sweet 8mm Deep Red Roses.

Next, I created a card using one of my favorite types of stamps available at I Brake For Stamps. If you haven't picked up any of the collage stamps, You've just gotta!!! the images are striking and the option to double stamp and fussy cut to create dimension is amazing.

First off, I took a white piece of card stock and sprayed it with Pink Polka Dot and Teal High Heel Chalkboard Glimmer Mist. Once completely dry, I stamped the Napoli Collage stamp using Versafine in black, Then I restamped the image onto a scrap piece of white card stock and embossed with a glitter embossing powder. I fussy cut the butterfly, and added it to the front of the card using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. The color combination of pink, teal and black is truly beautiful. To add a little more dimension to the image, I highlighted the sentiment and some of the fruit with a white pen.

So what do you think of my first projects? I hope that I've given you some inspiration today and you create create create!!! Don't forget to use my design team code to get a discount on stamps.
