Hello House friends....

We've got another anything goes challenge for you at The House That Stamps Built, so wind up your creativity and come on over and play along.

For this card I used RI#10506-J "Wavy Circle Frame" which I stamped 3 times in a brown dye ink.  I then built a floral arrangement around the two back ones with RI#10207-E "Flower Cluster Solid" and RI#10204-D "Leaf Cluster Solid".  The sentiment is from the RI #9800 "Happy Set".  I added some white NUVO Crystal Drops to the centers of the flowers and amazingly, while they dried, they absorbed the color of the Distress Oxide Inks I had stamped the flowers with.  

I hope you found some inspiration and will come over and play along with us at THE HOUSE.  The details of how to play along and what you can win can be found there.  

For even more incredible creations for the Anything Goes Challenge take a look at what these awesome ladies have created.

Hello Junkies!  

There were so many fabulous stamps in the July Release and playing with them has been one of my guilty pleasures.  

For today's post I wanted to show you a technique called "Watered Dylusions Tutorial" from the Bodacious Background Stamps CD .  This technique plays with Dylusion sprays and I chose "Everything Dandelion" for the background stamp.  I did a little switch and added another over stamping of the bg stamp with white pigment ink and heat embossed it with white ep.  I also added some clear Nuvo Crystal Drops for additional texture and dimension.  The sentiment is from the "Sentimental Sayings" set.

I hope you found some inspiration here today and you don't want to miss the August Release one week from today, August 1.  I promise you will love each and every stamp.
