I have lots of new Inque stamp sets to play with and one of the first things I do when I get new stamps is look for things I can create that are different from the intended use of the set. When I looked at my Petals stamp set there was one petal in particular that looked like a surfboard. So I created this beachy scene with that flower petal. I used Kraft cardstock and Stampendous Golden Sand embossing powder for the ground. The surfboards are cut from My Mind’s Eye patterned papers. I cut a slit in the sand with an Xacto knife and slid the bottom of the board into the sand. I added Crystal Stickles to each of the boards as well. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things. The second card also uses Petals, but more for its intended use. I had a little scrap of Chatterbox Happy Day paper on my desk so instead of tossing it in the garbage I structured my layout around the size of the scrap. The flower petals are colored with Copic marker and I added a big Bella Dot to the middle of the flower. The sentiment is from Papertrey’s anniversary set Simple Little Things. I have one more little must-have Inque product to tell you about. Have you seen Stephanie’s secret weapon yet? If not, you can check out this video. The secret weapon can be found here and purchased for only $3.49. It has become a permanent fixture on my stamp table… so completely worth the small price tag!
