Creativity Feeds the Soul

Creativity Feeds the Soul

Last week I gave a glimpse of some of the creations I worked on for the October Release. This week, I'd like to highlight the card I designed using the WATER LILY BACKGROUND STAMP as well as the CREATE A CAMEO set. 

Brutus Monroe Water Lily Background stamp and Create a Cameo stamp set. Designed by Marie Nicole.

The first thing I did for this card was mask off a circle in the middle of my card base. Then I used my Misti with the WATER LILY background stamp and some Versamark ink to stamp the gorgeous background design. After I had a nice, crisp black impression, I used Brutus Monroe ICICLE EMBOSSING POWDER and embossed over the ink. 

I also stamped and embossed a piece of scrap paper so that I could fussy cut out some of the flowers from the background stamp. I love that background stamps can be versatile, in that you can use them as a gorgeous background, or you can fussy cut parts out of it to have layering pieces on a card! 

I used a bit of pink ink and blended it on over the flowers I fussy cut. I kept the colors very light, so that most of the visual interest is still on the WATER LILY stamp. 

Next, I grabbed the new CREATE A CAMEO stamp set and stamped out one of the feminine cameos. I used my Misti again along with the OZ SURFACE INK to stamp several times until I achieved a solid, even color. I then fussy cut the cameo and layered it along with the fussy cut flowers over the masked design. I popped a few of these pieces up on foam adhesive for dimension. 

For the sentiment, I actually used one of the quotes from the COZY COFFEE stamp set. I loved this sentiment and thought that it would look fabulous along with this card. After I stamped and embossed it in ALABASTER, I adhered the sentiment to the card. 

For a finishing touch, I grabbed some gold foil stickers I found in my stash and added them to the flowers. I always love a touch of metallics on any of my creations! 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! You can find all the items I used here as well as the rest of the October Release items in the store. 

Until next time, 
Marie Nicole
