myStampBOX: Clearsnap Partner Project

The designers at myStampBOX and Clearsnap joined forces this week to enjoy each other's products. Today I get to share what I made!

Every once in a while I get on a jewelry-making kick, and this time was no exception! I stamped a piece of silver cardstock using ColorBox Sea Crystal Chalk Ink and Pigment Inks in Raisin and Blue Jean. I was inspired by the iridescent colors of the leaf beads and tried to match their hues in ink. The small leaf from A Flower For You was the perfect shape and size for this project.

Then I made a card to go with my jewelry piece. I stamped some images from Floating Leaves onto an ATC using Pigment Inks and heat set. Then I rubbed Guacamole and Sea Crystal Chalk Inks over the ATC, creating a batik-like effect. I restamped the leaf images using Raisin and Blue Jean Pigment Inks and heat set using Clear Top Boss embossing powder. The navy cardstock panel was embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and rubbed with Wheatgrass Pigment Ink to enhance its texture.

I added a little sparkle to the main stamped leaf images using Frost Smooch Glitz. The sentiment was stamped in Raisin Pigment Ink from the Mention It stamp set and clear embossed as well.

I love getting a chance to combine myStampBOX stamps with other product partners, and Clearsnap is certainly a perfect match! Special thanks to the Clearsnap folks for sharing some goodies with us and teaming up to create awesome projects. Be sure to check out the myStampBOX and Clearsnap blogs today for more inspiration.
