STAMPlorations Digi Inspiration

I'm so pleased you've dropped by today as I'm showcasing some digital stamps from the STAMPlorations digi store.

STAMPlorations Digital Store

I've used the very beautiful and fabulously inspiring to colour Floral Coffee Cups To Go digi stamps to create a set of atc cards. I usually make atc cards as one offs or in sets of three, but I couldn't resist these stamps and made a full set of six.

Each card started off in the same way with a bronze pearlised card matted onto black and a horizontal stencilled strip using the ARTplorations Fairy Tale Forest stencil. I then spent some enjoyable hours  colouring the florals using my Copic pens. The colours are the same on each card and selected for their autumnal feel.

Each card also had a STAMPlorations clear washi sticker added and a trio of enamel dots.

I then went on to make a card and got a bit creative in Photoshop Elements. I colorised the coffee cups and shrunk them down to make a background sheet. I also colorised the large coffee cup before printing it out and adding more colour with my Prismacolor pencils.

I used the same card colours and stencilled a panel to echo the atc cards and finished it all off with a die cut Life is Good sentiment from CUTplorations and a trio of enamel dots.
