Innovative Stamp Creations New Release Day

If you are looking for the Mark's Finest Papers blog hop, go to the previous post.  If you are looking for my Stampin B's and CCEE card, please go back two posts.


Welcome! Just a month or so and Spring will arrive! How about a few images to spark your creativity?! Throughout the year, ISC will introduce different sized-lines! So without further ado, ISC Half-Sheets, 4 x 5 ¼ with loads of versatile! Let’s start with Dandelions, Delicate Daisy, and Eclectic Butterfly and take a look at how some of the Architects incorporated the background image Netting

(I could not find my Netting stamp in the stamp cave, but if you want to see a card using that background stamp, please look HERE.)

A few tidbits about these lines….

The open Daisy was created for those who enjoy water coloring to a wrinkle free distress’n technique and more. You could use a 7/8” circle punch on the round image to add as an embellishment on card.

The Butterfly is ideal for a paper piecing technique as well as embossing! You could use a 1” circle punch on the round image to accent your design.

On the Dandelions sheet, use the frames to create a 3-D effect on your card or use ¾” circle punch on the speck-partial-round image to accent your creation.

So, to recap, the February Line includes:

Delicate Daisy
Eclectic Butterfly
Background Series: Netting

These lines combine well with the following background series:
Specks, Canvas & Distressed Script.

You always create such elegant looking cards, these are no exception. That netting stamp reminds me of the retired SU cheesecloth a bit. I like that card too, the seascape. A bit frozen this month though, eh?

These are wonderful, Joanne! I love the split neg on the first one and the color combo on the second is perfect for that daisy. Fab job!
