Creative and Stunning Tag and Card by Britt Bass

Hello lovelies, Britt Bass here.  Today I want to share a tag with you using some of my favorite Hampton Art stamps and embossing powder along with several colors of Clearsnap ink.

Bingo Tag by Britt Bass

For me, the projects I made for this month are a little outside of my normal offerings, but I'm currently in LOVE with inky blacks paired with beautiful, bright and saturated colors.  I love stepping out of my usual methods and trying a new product or a new way to use older products.

I added texture to the tag with a little background stamp from the Diffusion range (the horizontal distressed lines) and embossed the lines using white Hampton Art embossing powder.  I 'grunged' up the tag with some clearsnap chalk ink and I love how the embossed lines stand out around the edges.

I stamped the bingo card stamp from the 7gypsies range, trimmed it, inked it and misted the edge with some mint mist, then I mounted it on a little piece of striped cardstock and attached that piece to the tag.

I then stamped and distressed the two little round labels (one from a Jillibean set and one from a Graphic 45 Ladies Diary set) and turned them into epoxy embellishments.   I dripped some black ink over the tag and embellished with the epoxies, seam binding, flowers, buttons and mint washi.

Hello again!  Britt Bass here today, sharing a card I made using several wood-mounted Hampton Art stamps, Hampton Art embossing powder, and Clearsnap Cat's Eye chalk ink and the application tool.

Molto Bello card by Britt Bass

I have a two beautiful stamps from the Art Warehouse range that I hadn't used yet and I was itching to make them into a pretty evening scene for the front of a notecard.

First, I stamped the branches and bird with watermark ink and embossed it using black Hampton Art embossing powder.  Then, I stamped the large distressed background over it and embossed it in clear.  

I punched a circle from scrap and used temporary adhesive to mask over the place where the sun would go and then I used my Cat's Eye chalk inks and application tool to apply color to the background.  With the color applied, I removed the circle mask and inked over the empty space, creating the setting sun.  

I stamped two stars near the evening sun, and stamped my sentiment on a scrap of white, trimmed it and inked it with yellow.  Finally, I added a little bling to the stars and sun.
