Today something a little different - Betsy from ISC asked her design time to create a 6x6 layout. I’m not much of a scrapper but I gave it a go (or course I had some adorable pictures of my Niece - how could I resist them?)

Summer Vacation:

1st Page:

Second Page:Close Up of Stamped Frame:

I used the new Serenity and Picturesque stamps from ISC and yummy new Little Yellow Bicycle paper and overlays (these are in ISC monthly kit - more info below). The picture frames were made using Scrapbook Photo Slides that I stamped with the ocean images.

Another project using this months kit is an A2 card box.

Handmade for You:

Side view of the handmade Tassel:

The flower was stamped on old book text - the Australian Daisy comes with 3 different size flowers that will allow you to create some awesome layers. I stamped two of each size for this flower.

Rose Tree

This is a release week for Innovative Stamp Creations and there are some fun things planned - you know like a blog hop, discount codes, new rubber and a chance to win TWO FREE stamps sets (who doesn‘t want new rubber)…

But I get a little ahead of myself - today I am showing just one card made from the new stamps and you’ll have to wait for the rest…

Rose Tree:

The background is Alcohol Inks and Metallic Mixatives, the “tree” is embossed with brown embossing powders and the mini roses are Grunge Paper. What you can’t tell in the picture is that each rose is stamped with a different image - script, bingo card and cracks.

Tip - It is important to emboss the image over the background or the Metallic Mixative will bleed through your image.

Have a great Sunday!

The Stuff:
Stamps - (all Innovative Stamp Creations) Flourishing Ivy, Memories of Patriotism, Arty Backgrounds, About Me
Ink - Spice Marmalade Distress Inks (Tim Holtz, Ranger); Sepia Archival (Ranger), VersaMark
Paper - Glossy, White, Choc Chip (SU)
Other - Grunger Paper (Tim Holtz - idea-ology), Chestnut EP (American Crafts), Copper Mist (Tattered Angels); Stream, Sky Blue Silver Metallic Mixatives Alcohol Inks (Tim Holtz - Ranger)
