Ink Road Stamps: Inspired by Mary
Today I am very quickly sharing some cards (in case you missed it on the Ink Road Stamps blog - view here) that I created after seeing Mary (one of my fellow IRS design team gals) create a fun layout using Ink Road Stamp set - Just a number. I absolutely love some of the ideas and concepts that scrapbookers put into one page. So much detail, colours, and subtle embellishments - if anything the biggest challenge was picking just one element and then figuring out how to squeeze it all onto a small card!
It was a pretty fun stamping process - I chose colours from the current December colour challenge and using the three balloons flipped them upside down to create lanterns - stamping each one in alternating colours. There was some masking involved and I did think about depth perception a little placing the smaller balloon towards the back and putting the larger balloons up front. I added some machine sewn stitching in gold to connect the lanterns together. The sentiments are stamped using Ink Road Stamps - Block Party Alphas and Block Party Alphas - Outline. Heat embossed in gold and cut out with my silhouette.
