Guesting at The Gray Muse Blog

Hi crafty friends, I am super excited to be a guest on The Gray Muse blog! YAY! Today I have three inspirations for you with some really amazing stamp sets from The Gray Muse shop. I hope, you will enjoy them. She is selling not only stamps, but amazing stuff for creatives like enamel pins! :) As always you can find the used supplies below the post.

For my first card I have used the super cute Cats in theCraft Room Stamp Set. When I hold this amazing set in my hands I knew, that I am going to make a Pop-up box card with them. 

I stamped and colored the images with my Copic Markers and put together a box card. I have used Lawn Fawn Die-cutting plates and papers to create the box. You can find the full list of supplies below the post. 

Once I put the pop-up card together, I missed something from the card, so I stamped the image from the BeKind Stamp Set, and after a quick coloring I just fussy cut the flowers and leaves then adhered them to the background. After this I was really happy with the result, so it was done. :) 

For my second card I used the Happiness Blooms Stamp Set. I started by stamping the flower image on Bristol Smooth card stock with Versafine Ink and I heat set it! When it was done, I colored the image with Arteza Real Brush Pens and in the end of the coloring I added highlights with White Pen

Next, I stamped the same image to a masking magic paper. After a quick and chilly fussycuting I covered the colored image with my mask and made an ink blending to the background with various Distress Oxide Inks

When it was done, I pulled off the masking magic (if you want to see how it looks like, feel free to check my Instagram Story highlights for today, I will show it!). In the end I stamped and heat embossed the beautiful sentiment with white embossing powder and it was ready. 

For my last card I used the Hugs Stamp Set, along with the You Grow Girl sentiment set. If you are a crafter, this sentiment set is a must have for you! For this card I stamped the image to Arteza Expert Watercolor paper with Versafine ink. 

After a quick heat set, I wet the whole image with clear water and I created a quick painting on it with colorful watercolors and let it dry. For the second coat I have used only black watercolor, but this time I colored only around the “HUGS” sentiment. 

Next I let it dry once more and added more details to the letters with glitter brush marker, white pen and put on them some clear sequins too. I stamped the image in clear embossing ink and used rose gold embossing powder. Before putting the heat embossed sentiment to my card, I splattered the edges with watercolor. 

I hope you enjoyed my inspirations, feel free to comment which card is your favorite! I am in LOVE with these fabulous stamp sets and the amazing pins are just wow. Be sure to check The Gray Muse shop here
