New Release Date -- Innovative Stamp Creations


Escape, Travel, Explore……


This release is truly breathtaking! These stamps show the beauty in nature connected with the ocean that brings me such peace and tranquility. We have also incorporated Travel design paper, Film Strip by Tim Holtz, embellishments and more from the Travel & Escape Kit that is available from Innovative Stamp Creations starting today with the new releases.

In the creation of this first card I used the Rocks on the Shore stamp, along with the Netting Backgrounder. The sentiment was created from a sticker that will be part of the kit, and I added one of my collection of buttons and fiber at the top left. I also used some of the Travel designer paper.

The stamps being released today are:

Rocks on the Shore
By the Bay
On the Shore
Background Series: Netting


For this second card I used the On the Shore stamp. I again used a brad and the Tim Holtz film strip that will be similar to items in the kit for this month. I added a flower and a shell as the flower center from my own collection. I cuttlebugged the vanilla base layer and paper pierced its edges. The image was colored with Copics in soft, neutral tones.

The items to be included in this month's kit are shown in the third picture.

Be sure to visit each of the Creative Architects’ blogs to see some truly spectacular creations made with these stamps.
