Sunday Stampers Challenge ~ Something New....

In my last post I shared my love of stamping and my plan to finally join in with the Sunday Stampers Challenge from Hels Sheridan's Blog, Ink on My Fingers!

The theme for this week is "Something New". This could be interpreted how we liked, my take on this theme is, I'm NEW to Sunday Stampers and I have NEW inks to play with, a 2 for 1! 

The important thing is you have to use stamps, no problem for me I have 4 drawers full!

So what did I create?....

A summery, happy card

My new inks in summery colours. 

The stamp set I've used is a new range from Craftwork Cards, More Than Words, (more newness!) I used one of the butterfly stamps....

It's cold and cloudy in the UK (a nightmare for taking photos) so these colours are brightening up my day!

Using another Distress Ink from my stash, Mustard Seed, I added a background with a stencil... 

I had to mask off the butterflies to make sure they still stood out.
To add more texture to the background I added brown stripes from another stamp set I have in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I stamped the word "happy" from the Craftwork Cards set also in Vintage Photo.

The edges have been distressed with Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo.

I added "Be" and using glitter glue added glittery accents to the Happy and butterflies...

This was mounted on to Kraft card which I also distressed with Vintage Photo

Ta Dah!

I'm pleased with this, even if I do say so myself, but I wish I added more dimension. So I went on to do another card using something else new in my stash.....

Using the same stencil again, I used Mustard Seed yellow in areas of the stencil then added the pearlescent paste all over...

Using the flower stamp this time from the "More Than Words" set I stamped it a number of times in my new colours and cut them out. I distressed the edges in Vintage Photo or Spiced Marmalade

By layering the flowers and shaping them makes pretty 3D flowers....

I used the same "happy" stamp in scarlet and a "birthday" stamp in coffee on white card distressed with Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo around the edges. Everything had been mounted onto red card and I added some pearls to the centre of the flowers.

So there is my first Sunday Stampers Challenge complete! What do you think? Do you have a favourite out of the two cards?
