Spellbinders July Stamp of the Month
Hi there my crafty friends. Today I’m sharing a few cards using the newest Stamp of the Month from Spellbinders. I normally don’t make cards where there’s no coloring so I pulled out my Distress Oxide inks to add some color to my cards. Don’t you love the pops of color of the fish.
I just recently bought the Picket Fence Studio Life-Changing Brushes — I LOVE them. I always have a heavy hand when I do my distressing and it always left a harsh line or circle from my daubers. When I’m using these Life-Changing brushes I don’t have that problem.
On the rainbow fishes card I first sponged my Tumbled Glass in the center of the card base and then I stamped my fish in my distress oxide inks. Here’s the order of the colors, Picked Raspberry, Scattered Straw, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac. I used my stitched rectangle die to get that pierced border.
For the turtle card I sponged the Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass, then I stamped the turtles in the Chipped Sapphire. I stamped and embossed my sentiment in White ink and embossing powder. For some extra details I took my white gel pen and added some little bubbles. I wanted to keep the stitched look so I turned my stitched rectangle die just to add the stitching on the bottom of the sponged area.
I wanted a bright rainbow background so I used Picked Raspberry, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac to create my background then I stamped the fish and sentiment in my Memento Black ink. Again, I used my stitched rectangle and white gel pen for the stitching and made some bubbles, too.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Don’t forget the Spellbinders Stamp of the Month is only available for a limited time. Order yours today!

Gorgeous series of cards! Love that stamp but your backgrounds are what really caught my eye! Thanks for joining crafty gals corner this month. DT Connie
Mindy, these are all so eye catching. I love the element of repetition in them. They are great inspiration for those of us that are challenged at making beautiful “flat” cards. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon Challenge this week!
How do you clean the brushes between uses?
I just rub the brush on a scratch paper.
