Layers of Color New Cling Art Stamp Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Layers of Color First Ever Cling Art Stamp Release Blog Hop! We have so much to be excited about at Layers of Color! Red Rubber on cling.... we're lovin it! If you got here from the Layers of Color Blog, you are in the right place! If not, you want to be sure to start there so you read all about the release, and the Two New Release Prize Drawings!

Today I am showing you two different projects. I made a luminaria using the instructions on SCS, although I modified my dimensions a bit. I used two Layers of Color Art stamps on it... the Garden Wall cling art stamp and the Brick Wall cling art stamp. This Garden Wall Art Stamp is custom made for the Spellbinder's Label 14 and is sooo pretty! I colored it with Pebbles pearlescent chalks and cut it out. I stamped four designs total, but left the frame intact for the front only, and cut out the floral elements for the other three sides. The brick wall pattern is such that you can make a continuous brick wall as I did here if you want.... or you could just let it "trail off". The top is a Martha Stewart Iron edge punch. Inside I am using a battery operated candle and it really flickers so pretty in there! I have to say I love these new cling art stamps!

I also wanted to show you another project I made using the Layers of Color Floral Frame cling art stamp and Embroidered Butterfly cling art stamp.

This card uses the new Cling Art Stamp, Floral Frame custom made for the Spellbinder's Label Sixteen die. I have colored with Copics and for the butterfly, after coloring I embossed with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder. I have used wire and beads to make his antennae have some dimension and popped him up on dimensionals. The DP is Pink Paisley 365* and the pearls are ZVA Creative. Hope you like it!

Traci S. said...

Wow, Grace! This luminaria is SPECTACULAR! It is so beautiful, and romantic...I love how you photographed it with the light showing. It is beautiful. It could be a window to sit at in a moment of deep thinking, or a special place to take time and be with the Lord each day. It is wonderful. I love the image! Imagine a beautiful vine with flowers down the side...or perhaps a princesses hair out the window...down the length of the wall...just waiting to be saved from the evil wizard! LOL

I have such an active imagination! I wish I could show it in my cards!

I love the butterfly card. Butterflies are such a symbol of hope, love and peace. I love how you colored them.

Both of these cards are FANTASTIC, Grace. Thank you so much for sharing!

He IS Able!
