I was sent this "cute" Mushroom Home stamp and die set. I am not into "cute" so there it is...challenge accepted. My goal is to take a cute stamp and make it into my style. Love it...
For this project I used the circle and wee brick stamps on the Needle Book die cut. I stamped the images onto the mat board. Then with distress micro glaze I created a barrier for the spray to coat over. I used my distress spray's broken china, vintage photo, black soot and brushed pewter. Then inside is all stamped and inky too.
Once I got to the inside I had a little fun with the small chat words. I attached the stitched cameo popped in a photo booth image and coated it with glossy accents.
I love the finished look of this Needle Book. On the front I added some gears I layered up.
You wouldn't even know these are for a Mushroom House.
Cutting the small chat phrase up and distressing it looks great when you open it up.
I love the stitched cameo and vintage image. The small bubbles add to that vintage feel.
The stamped variety of circles and spray's make for a rich background.
I love how these layered gears work with the stamps.
I hope I've inspired you to look at your stash differently. It's a great way to really get the most out of your stamps. Be free and let your imagination soar. By just using a couple of stamps in this way you would have no idea these are from a Mushroom House. How fun!
Thanks for stopping by.
