Be Glamorous by Stamps By Me

Hi lovely crafters

Hope you're all well. Any plans for today?

My blog for today is using the beautiful new
Be Glamorous stamp set and
Artistic Stitch Frame 1 die, available from Stamps By Me 

Also used:
Distress Inks : Spun Sugar, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn
Distress Oxide : Cracked Pistachio
Shaker tape
(Stencil/texture stamps)

  • Use the die to cut out an aperture square frame, on white card. Ink around the edge in Tumbled Glass DI. Adhere acetate over the back of this.
  • Adhere shaker tape, on the reverse side, around the aperture and around the edge of the frame
  • Cut a square of white card the same size and using your Distress Inks  ( in any combination of colours), ink them onto a glass mat, spritz with water and drag the card through it, to create a watercolour smooshed background
  • Stamp the sentiment in black onyx versafine 
  • Lay sequins/beads of your choice onto the acetate, within the aperture,  and then adhere your smooshed background to the back, to create your "shaker"
  • Using this as a guide, stamp the beautiful Flower, in Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean DI'S, so it appears to be coming from being your shaker component. 
  • Add a hint of colour to the flower using a water brush and Distress inks 
  • Ink through the Honeycomb stencil and stamp randomly,  using a texture stamp, with the Distress inks 
  • Now adhere the shaker component to the right side of your card blank, to complete 
I hope you've enjoyed today's post
