My first two cards features the Camera Love stamp set! I adore all those fun little cameras in the set! I have a video to go along with my first card! 🙂 You can watch it here on the blog or over on my youtube channel!



See how cute those cameras are? And because I heat embossed the cameras and sentiments, all the color I laid down on the top didn’t mute out the outlines of the stamped images. Check out the shine:

Next up, I have a very similar layout because I just couldn’t get enough of this Camera Love stamp set paired with the fun artsy feels of the colors laid down over the top.

And of course, a little more shine because I heat embossed the images and used a metallic wash over the top!

Let’s check out the last card to share with you all! I adore the Country Wreath stamp set! There is so much you can do with the wreath and all the florals. I chose to use just the florals here and did a little bit of simple masking to come up with my layout. First I die cut some circles onto some masking paper (you could also use a post it note or super thin copy paper) and then adhered the negative space to my card so I could do all my stamping on the inside of the circles! I stamped all the various florals with some Versamark ink and then heat set those babies with some Rose Gold embossing powder!

To add color to the circles and images, I turned to my trusty distress inks!!!! And lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Camera Love stamp set and adhered it to the card! A few flicks of black ink to finish it off!
