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.
