Muse: ChristmasVisions 51

I'm thrilled to be this week's Guest Muse at the Muse: ChristmasVisions blog.


For my inspiration card, I decided to have a play with lots (if not all) of the tiny stamps from a NBUS stamp set by Joy!Crafts. I started by die cutting a circle to create a guide for placing my stamps in the upper part of the circle and then picked them up using my Fiskars stamp press. After stamping them in Versamark and heat embossing them in white embossing powder (SSS), I repeated the process for a few more cards (light bulb moment) and then rearranged some of the stamps for the lower part of the circle. I then used the negative of my die cut as a mask for my blending. To finish off, I stamped the bow using my NBUS glue pad and added red glitter. The sentiment on the die cut vellum sentiment banner (SSS) was created in the same way and the banner was then popped up using Kool Tak clear foam adhesive behind the sentiment.

I do hope you are inspired and want to play along. Maybe you could have a look what you can do with all those tiny stamps that are in your stamp sets? Please hop over to the MCV blog for the challenge details. I cannot wait to see what you create.

I'm also linking this card up at:
Jingle Belles (use a clear element)
Stamplorations CAS card (anything CAS with the optional colour of blue)
Stamplorations Theme and Sketch challenge (I went with the theme: Stamps and celebration)
SSS Wednesday (Anything goes).

  8. Congratulations on being Guest Muse, Marianne!! I think this is beyond clever! I have one of those Fiskars thingies and I have never used it. Since I can't use the MISTI, I need to start using my Fiskars for fun tiny placements like this! It worked brilliantly for this fun bauble!! And I love the bow and banner sediment!I hope to have time to play along.

    And I hope your husband is continuing to do well! Enjoy the 4th of July weekend!! Hugs, Darnell
