Creativity | Flower Stamp | Squares Stencil

Good Afternoon, we hope you are doing ok today. Ericka Strange is here on the blog with some fabulous inspiration to brighten your day…

Today I’m playing with some products from Visible Image’s latest release. My first card is using the Total Chaos set and the Square Route stencil. I love the large flower and can’t wait to use the other stamps in the set as well.

I started off by blending Distress Oxides on Bristol Smooth paper. I used Sea Glass Distress Oxide on the whole panel and then took the Square Route stencil and used Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Grape. I then splatted some water on the panel and lifted some of the ink up.



While my panel was drying, I stamped the flower on another piece of Bristol Smooth paper and heat embossed it with WOW Midnight Dream Embossing Powder. I love the sparkle and shine it give any image. I colored up my flower with Zig Real Color Brush pens and then fussy cut out the image. I stamped and embossed the same image on the panel and then attached my flower with some foam tape.


I added a couple more smaller flowers to the panel as well and heat embossed and colored them as well.


I stamped the sentiment on vellum and heat embossed it with black powder to give it a crisp look and finish my card.

I made one more quick card with the Square Route stencil. My daughter’s friend was having a birthday and he loves Minecraft so I thought this would be a great card for him.


I made this card in a similar way to the previous card. I started out with Bristol Smooth paper and blended Bundled Sage Distress Oxide to the base. Then I took my other green Distress Oxides and blended them in the different squares to make it look like computer game Minecraft. I add the numbers from the Robot Data set and stamped them in various Distress inks around the base.


Once I was done with the background, I stamped the sentiment in Versfine Ink and heat clear heat embossed the whole panel to give it a shine.


To finish my card, I added Nuvo drops for a little fun (including some green glow in the dark).
