Oh my goodness, where has time gone? Another month already gone and it is time for Innovative Stamp Creations sneak peek for the September release. You are in for a treat this month. There is a little bit for everyone. Today I am showing you a little peek of a set called "The Tropics". This stamp sheet is very versatile and I had fun creating with it. See, I have been in a little more masculine card making over the last few weeks and this set can be used for either feminine or masculine cards. For my sneak peek I chose some rustic cream cs from PTI and some textured cs from a DCWV pad in chocolate brown. To get use out of the script stamp that is included in this sheet I took it and stamped it on rustic cream cs in SU Mellow Moss. The stamp is appr. 1" wide and appr. 5" long so not an entire BG stamp but real easy to align. I did not even use a guide or anything, I just went for it ;D. To give it a little more interest I cut the script panel with my Nesties curved rectangles die and distressed the edges by running a chalk box cats eye over them in Creamy Brown. To give it a little more earthy feeling I added some Jute ribbon I found in the $ bin at Michael's. For my image I chose this palm leaf and stamped it in SU Mellow Moss and colored it in with watercolor pencils. To add a sentiment I used the three simple words "keep in touch" stamped on one of the Nesties Ribbon Tag Trios in SU Close to Cocoa which I attached to the card by threading some stitched grosgrain ribbon through. To make the palm leaves pop a little more I matted them with DCWV textured chocolate cs which I punched out with my 1.5" scalloped square punch and voila, you've got the finished card.
See for yourself.....
