Succulents…3 Ways

Today we’re pleased to welcome guest designer Isha Gupta to the blog! She’ll be sharing three creative ideas for using the same stamp set in different ways. You’ll find complete instructions linked below each of her cards. Enjoy!

Hello everyone! Isha here. Today I’m so excited to share my creations here as a guest designer. Thank you Hero Arts for this awesome opportunity.

 

I wanted to share something special with you so I decided to challenge myself. My challenge? Use one stamp in three very different ways. I chose the Stamp Your Own Succulents stamp set. Furthermore, you’ll see that I used various techniques (yay!).

 

For this card, I simply stamped the succulents to create my own background. For some dimension, I used the inlaid die-cut technique for the tag. Finished it off with a die-cut sentiment and some embellishments.

For this card, I decided to make an acetate shaker card. For the succulent I stamped and embossed them onto vellum. Then I colored them from the backside.

Here I went for the no-line coloring technique using pencil colors. Love the effect, these images are perfect for an artistic approach.
