I have been making cards for about 2 years now and have learned a lot from other blogs, YouTube, Pinterest, etc. I have become addicted to stamping and all the fun that comes with it. I enjoy experimenting with new techniques and media which led me to start TheGrandStampede.. I figured I could share some of my work with you and then add links to where I came up with my design inspiration. You can also follow on Pinterest and Twitter (still new so bear with me.). I will start out with my most recent work..
Harvest Greetings- Used printed chevron paper with colored scarecrow and stamped corn scene. Word 'Harvest' and 'Greetings' are from two different sets. Embellished with Stampin' Up brad. Size 4.25x5.5
Reindeer wishes- This is actually a free printout I believe from PaperCrafts. Thought cutting out the second deer gives it a sense of dimension. The red banner adds a touch of color. Size: 4.25x5.5
Hoppy Day- Stamped pod scene watercolored then added lilypad background paper with red border. Sentiment was hand drawn with white gel pen (any tips on how to use white gel pens without the mess would be awesome)
Peddler Pack- I just adore Peddler pack stamps. The image does the work for you!! Just add color (if you want!), in this case I used Perfect Pearls and Pearl-Ex for the color. It gives a shimmery look of ornaments on a tree. The blue banner with a Stampin' Up sentiment ties the whole card together.
Well that concludes my very first blog post. I will get more savvy as time goes on so bear with me as I learn!! Also, you can follow me on Pinterest!! Just type in TheGrandStampede. I will come up with a link later. ;)
