Stamping Collage Post #1

Today I'm sharing the first two cards I created around the ticket embellishments I shared last week. These cards all feature a lot of stamp layering that I call "collage style." It's something I'm fairly new at, in fact these may be my first cards to do in that least my first that include LOTS of stamp layers. For step by step instruction in putting these cards together: Visit today's post on the Cropstop blog.

Supplies and Tools:
Embellishments: Pearls
Inks: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Frayed Burlap, Wild Honey, Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide (Ranger)
Misc. Watercolor Paper, Mounting Tape, Brayer
Punches: Embroidered Lace Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Monarch Butterfly Trim (Martha Stewart)
Stamps: Blossom, The Journey, Flights of Fancy (Tim Hotlz), Music Background Stamp (Heidi Swapp)
Stencils: Flourish Stencil (Tim Hotlz)

Supplies and Tools:
Dies/Punches: Tattered Florals (Tim Holtz), Hello Doily (Sizzix), Frond Punch (Martha Stewart)

I hope you'll come back next Monday when I'll share the last two cards created in this style with those ticket embellishments. Meanwhile, we want to see what you've been creating of late!
