Inspired By Stamping 3D Project

Today I am on the Inspired by Stamping blog with this 3D project.  You may recall a similar project like the one below using the Australian Birds Stamp Set.  Today I went back to the Winter Birds Stamp Set to create this Screen Divider Card with a Christmas theme.  (Yes, I know, it is a little early for Christmas projects but I love this stamp set).

This is such a great winter display piece that showcases these lovely birds!  These screen dividers can be folded and mailed in an A2 envelope!  
Happy Crafting!

Inspired By Stamping Masculine Birthday

Today I am over on the Inspired by Stamping blog showing a masculine birthday card.  This is a case where the designer paper inspired me.  It looked like a sunset over winter snow.

Inspired by Stamping, Crafty Colonel, Masculine Tags II, Birthday Greetings, Masculine Birthday Card

The Masculine Tags II stamp set had this wonderful image of the lone wolf with the mountains behind.  Living in Colorado, this image spoke to me.  With a cardstock flag to anchor the image and a sentiment from the Birthday Greetings any man would enjoy the scenic beauty on this card!  Masculine cards don't always have to be browns or subdued blues.  Bright colors can work too.  Just keep the embellishments to a minimum.

I am linking this to my friend and House of Cards DT member Monika's "My Birthday Party Linky-Party".  I cased her masculine card.

Happy Crafting!

Club Scrap March Technique Challenge

The technique challenge over at Club Scrap this month highlighted three different stamping techniques.  Roni Johnson had some great ideas to achieve faux watercolor techniques.  I chose to try the Stamping with Gelatos.

Crafty Colonel Donna Nuce, Club Scrap Bold Blooms Set, for Club Scrap Challenge

I used the Club Scrap Bold Bloom set from August 2012 to stamp these gorgeous poppies!  Stamping on watercolor paper with the Gelatos seems to work very if you use a very fine spray of water on the stamp. There are two other techniques highlighted at Club Scrap (with videos) for you to check out.
