The winner has been drawn randomly from projects submitted to the blog all month, as well as everybody who has placed an order for the spotlight stampsets.
Let’s have a party
For my first card I used the following new stampsets: Monkey Madness and Awesome Triangle Wizard.
I love balloons and even though this little fellow is waving, I think the hand gesture doubles as a holding hand.
I started by stamping the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp with a light grey using my MISTI. I then coloured in all the triangles in a variety of blues, turquoise and light greens. Because of the MISTI I could stamp the image again on top using Versamark. For the embossing powder I used a silver. Then it was just diecutting the circle. Voila a balloon 🙂
The text and the heart on the vellum circle is also from the new Monkey Madness set. I am really excited about those little gorillas.
You are going to rule the world
We all need some girl power and a boost of confidence once in a while. I know I do for sure! Being a small business owner is something that requires patience (which I do not have) and an icey stomach.
Therefore the focus for this stampset is a mental peptalk to all. Because You are awesome and you are totally going to rule the world! I have no doubt about that.
I double stamped the doodle circle in green and added the leaves here and there. I used the Sunflower from For My Sunflower using the same stamping technique as described above, this time I used gold glitter embossing powder (I was inspired by Natalie’s project for this).
The Monkey Madness set contains this sweet little gorilla with a heart in his hands as well as a selections of texts that fit inside.
And for the big finale I have a rainbow card!
The Awesome Triangle Wizard is a favourite. The stamp can be easily aligned to create bigger images because all the lines are the same thickness. So if you feel like it is too short, too narrow or you are just going big and bold – it is no problem lining this bad boy up.
The name is an old joke from Instagram which might seem a little weird 🙂 But I was asked what Krumspring meant once, and I explained, ending the sentence “I wish it meant something really cool like “awesome triangle wizard”, but unfortunately it doesn’t”. If you are ever wondering what Krumspring means – read the story here.
I stamped the image three times on a card base and coloured it using Zig Real Color Brush Markers.
The text is from Monkey Madness and the butterfly is from Spread Your Wings.
I hope you enjoyed the first installment of Release 6 inspiration week. We have a ton more inspiration coming your way, so stay tuned.
