Hello! I had the pleasure of creating with two new stamps from STAMPlorations which are part of a Bloghop celebrating the release of several TYPOGRAPHIA styled sets. These have MOTIVATIONAL sentiments..hence the name MOTIVATE. What a great way to make quick encouragement cards and projects!

The first one is called Do What You Can-TYPOGRAPHIA MOTIVATE
I kept the design on these cards very simple by stamping the Do What You Can on white CS then masking it off to stamp a random floral pattern with Floral Bliss Trio 1. Then trimmed it with the Crazy Double Running Stitched Rectangle die.

For this next one I added some pretty blooms around the sentiment:) Other stamp sets used Bloom Factory, Eclectic Florals, Frames and Flowers, Groovy Shoes

The next stamp is called Chance- TYPOGRAPHIA MOTIVATE
This is a one layer card as well inked in the MISTI to create a rainbow of words.

The final card is heat embossed with black EP onto a page from the original COLOR BLOOMS coloring book. Then I added an orange shadow by moving the stamp down just a bit and re-stamping a second time with ripe persimmon Distress Ink.

There is a PRIZE for the bloghop by commmenting:
 *One commenter will win her choice of 3 Typografia Motivate stamps. The winner will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMP blog and participating designers' blogs.

Winner will be announced on Tuesday, August 29.

The BLOGHOP list can be found at STAMPlorations. So comment here, and Get Hopping!

Thanks for stopping by!
