STAMPlorations Birthday Blog Hop - Day 4

Day 4!


With Guest designer: Taheerah Atchia

There's a lot of celebrating going on over at STAMPlorations for its second birthday!  We'd love it if you'd join us too!  The STAMPlorations team has all been busy making fabulous projects to inspire you.  We've been playing with the new party themed sets.  Here's my project for today...



So, for this card I really wanted to used that awesome mask stamp.  It reminded me of my wedding day as we had a masquerade theme and made fun masks for all our guests.  :-). Anyway, I taped off a corner section of my card base and then stamped my mask all over.  Then I masked a narrow strip and created an ombr√© effect by sponging on black ink.  I coloured my masks using my Spectrum Noir markers and then covered them in Wink of Stella.  You can see some of the glitter in the photo.  Then I stamped the sentiment in black.  I really like the diagonal design and I think I'm going to have to do some more cards like this.  I love that mask stamp and how it took me down memory lane.  :-)
So, if you want to have a chance to win some prizes you can comment along the hop and/or you can link up your birthday/party themed creations over at the blog.

  24. In my opinion, it's very hard to use lots of bright colours and still make a CAS card, but you make it look so easy. Gorgeous!
