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!
