Show Us Your Stuff April Challenge

This month's challenge at Show Us Your Stuff is right up my alley - 

Get Creative With Stamps!

I do have quite a few boxes of stamps, and I make a point to keep using them as often as I can. This challenge was a great motivator to get all my stamps out, get messy and a have a play!

And here is my layout-

Everything on the page except for a splash of paint, some patterned paper and some embellishments are all stamped - either with paint, ink or with Versamark ink then heat-embossed.

I began by making my background with patterns stamped with paint. I also stamped various word phrases with ink. I have heat embossed some stars to contrast with the ink stamping. 

For my title I stamped letters on vellum, then cut out each one individually to make tiles. I like the fact the vellum is clear so it looks like its stamped straight on to the cardstock, but with the flexibility to move them around to decide on placement.

I stamped some 'Live It Up' quotes and some stars on some white cardstock, and then fussy cut them out and stuck them to my page with foam tape as an extra embellishment.

My hand made items are a Super Star from Charm's Creations, and flair from D'Lish Scraps.
