New Stampscapes Scenes

I attended a Stampscapes class last weekend and we made some great cards.  I want to show you two of the cards we made because the techniques are so cool!

For the first card we stamped our images to make a scene and then tapped on Lake Mist and Pebble Adirondack inks with a Color Box blending stylus. This technique made a very nice dusky evening scene.  I added white highlights and Stickles to simulate a little bit of star sparkle.  I think it turned out pretty well for a beginner.

One of the amazing things about Stampscapes is that you can have 5 designers in a room using the exact same stamps and all the cards will turn out completely different. For this reason I am going to enter this card into a couple of challenges.  Our teacher Leslie, from Crafty Capers in Nanaimo gave us our inspiration, but all the cards turned out different according to the ability and personality of each of the designers.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Lakeside Cove 48E stamped twice, Bare Trees 269G
Paper: White card stock, Glossy Black and misc dp
Markers/Inks: Adirondack Pebble and Lake Mist
Embellishments: Stickles, Inkssentials Opac White pen

One of the other cards we made was a cute little ornament shaped card.  We stamped on black glossy card stock with white pigment ink to achieve the effect.

Well, those of you who have Stampscapes stamps and don't know what to do with them, I encourage you to pull them out and play.  It is the best way to learn and you will turn out something amazing that needs to be shared with your blog friends.

There aren't too many challenges out there for this type of card, but I managed a few:

Have a wonderful Monday!
