Fabulous Finds Friday — Claudine’s Cuties

Today we’re doubling our stamping goodness by combining TWO Fabulous Finds! New stamps by Claudine Hellmuth and new inks by Jennie Bowlin.

First, let’s look at the new stamp sets from Claudine Hellmuth — one a clear polymer outline set, the other a set of solid foam stamps. These stamps are designed to work together — and boy, are they fun.

Jenni Bowlin also has some new inks (distributed through Ranger). I love the colors and couldn’t wait to stamp them on something, anything. So I pulled the first piece of white scrap cardstock I could find and just ripped open those pads and started stamping the circles and flowers, combining the outline stamps with the solid images.

I trimmed the cardstock, mounted it on a green card and stamped the tree pieces. (Take a closer look … the turn the tree folilage on it’s side and you have clouds!) The trees were also spritzed with Perfect Pearls mist (LOVE this!), cut out and mounted. The sun was stamped, cut out and mounted with dimensional foam.

Here’s another card using that same background and the bird stamp:

I added some sparkle and dimension with Ranger Stickles and Dimensional Pearls, and tossed some Hero Arts tiny rhinestone flowers on the branches. Fast, easy and fun.

Thanks for stopping by!
