Day 4 of Inspired Stamp Challenge Week + Giveaway!

It's Day 4 of my Inspired Stamp Challenge Week with Jill Foster. Be sure to check out Jill's creation HERE next. That girl is amazing.

For today's challenge, we will both be using the Hero Arts Elegant Weeds cling stamp set and THIS remarkable card by Jill for inspiration…

Here is my take on these goodies. I used the Tim Holtz Baroque die cut, lots of Distress Ink, an EK Success punch, an etsy flower and some pearlized water. Fun fun fun to make. I trimmed the edges of the Baroque die cuts to make it more square, and I flicked pearlized water on the completed project for flecks of shine. (Jill is master of the artsy flick. :)

And, yes, if you don't have Tim's Baroque die, just go buy it. You will be happy you did. Such an elegant shape and another must-have…


I also am finding myself reaching for THIS great label punch from EK Success more and more. So quick and versatile. Lovely…

    a girl can never have too many stamps! And now that I am scrapbooking with my daughter’s 1st grade class (and 2 others) my stamps are getting even MORE use. The kids all think they are so much fun to use – I love that I’m starting the spark for future stampers!
