Day 9 - Stretch Your Stamps 2

Hi there!

It is so late! Almost 1:00am but I was determined to finish a card for day 9 of Stretch Your Stamps 2. It was just such a busy day and I could not find time to sit and create until now! It's okay though 'cause I'm a night owl anyway. :)

Today's lesson was all about stretching those beloved floral stamps and each of the designers' cards today were amazing! Dawn from WPlus9 shared a particularly beautiful card (does she create any other kind?) She is so darn talented and her videos are very easy to watch. I have learned so much from her and it's so inspiring!

Anyway, She shared a fun technique, stamping onto the Specialty Stamping Paper from Ranger. Here's my take on her card, using her own Spring Blooms stamp set.


The blue flowers were all created using only one of the leaf images from the stamp set. And it was really cool doodling all the black lines to highlight the flowers and leaves. I was really nervous to try it at first but once I added them to one petal, it became easier and was so fun to do! I love the results!

I sure am enjoying this class but I gotta get to bed sooner than this! Hoping I'm able to do my homework a little earlier for day 10! Night! ♥

fabulous Barb. I'm not such an night owl so my homework for days 6-9 will have to be this weekend. Love your cards. I don't have the speciality paper so hope it works as well on plain card
