STAMPlorations Faith Expressions 2

STAMPlorations™ Blog

Hi! I’m very excited to be here today featuring a new stamp set from STAMPlorations. In keeping with the theme of our March Challenge, I have the Faith Expressions 2 stamp set to share with you.

By the way, all of STAMPlorations’ stamps and dies, including the new Faith Expressions 2 set, are 10% off — no coupon needed…the discount is automatically applied in the shopping cart!

You can even snap them up at an extra 20% off if you use my STAMPlorations girl’s discount code: STAMPGIRLMELISSA.

No automatic alt text available.

Here are my cards using 3 of the 7 stamps in this great set.

How I made the 2 cards above:

  1. I inked up the Bloomtangled die cut with Zig Markers (on the card on the right)
  2. I added water with a paintbrush to the painted die cut.
  3. Then I blotted the ink off the die cut with a panel of watercolor paper. (That is the panel on the left card.)

Here is the left card again.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card. I embellished the front with more Zigs, to sharpen the lines, and gold and silver gel pens too. I used another Bloomtangle die cut as a stencil and sponged white ink on the inside of the card. I used the stamp to add a sentiment to the inside.

I stamped with the “peace be with you” stamp on a piece of vellum and heat embossed in gold.

Here’s a closer look at the inked up die cut with the “everlasting life” sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my cards.

I also used the new Bloomtangled Cover Plate die #1 to make both of these cards.

I made a stencil using the die and used it for this next card.
