New Release Art Marks 3

Welcome to day three of the STAMPlorations March stamp release! I hope you have enjoyed seeing projects using Shirley's Super Hero and Dee's Life Is Sweeter. And today over on the STAMPlorations blog we are sharing projects using Shery's new stamp set Art Marks 3. These grungy stamps are perfect for creating all kinds of fun cards - scroll below for two examples where I have used them to enhance my cards, and the design team is sharing many other ways over on the STAMPlorations blog.

For my first card, I used the zigzag stamp from Art Marks 3 and stamped it in Distress Oxides to create a background. Next, I stamped the cupcakes from Sweet Kindness, watercoloured them with Distress Oxides and fussy cut them. Last, I added a sentiment using Skinny Sentiments in matching colours.

For my second card, I used a background from my UFO box which I created using Distress Oxides and my Gelli plate. I die cut the background using Basic A2 Panels Nesting Dies and created a fun notepad edge using Art Edges Dies. Next, I used stamps from Art Marks 3 on the white card background and the die-cut panel to create some grungy texture. The coffee cup is from  What's Brewing?. I coloured it with Copics and fussy cut it. Last, I heat embossed a matching sentiment in white on black card using a stamp from What's Brewing?.

And of course, it wouldn't be a new stamp release without a chance to win some great prizes. Winners will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMPlorationa blog and designers' blogs (including mine!). One randomly drawn commenter will win a $25 prize code to the STAMPlorations store, and one randomly drawn commenter will win a stamp set of their choice from the new release. You have until March 17th to leave a comment, and the winners will be announced on March 19th.
