Saturday Showcase - Stampers Anonymous Fragments

Hello! Suzz here with a Saturday Showcase featuring the wonderful Stampers Anonymous Fragments Stamps!

My favorite thing about crafting is stamping. I always try to include stamping on any project I create. I decided to dig into my scraps piles to look for backgrounds and bits created previously. The fragments stamps are perfect for adding the next layer of texture and detail on any these type of scraps.

For my first card I pulled a beautiful background from my stash. I adored the art I created with this background previously and was happy to pull it out and use up the rest of the pieces. I found enough pieces to cut out the butterfly to coordinate.

The fragment stamp added the perfect details in the corners. I stamped them using a brown archival ink and then to make it pop I heat embossed with embossing powder.

The Paper Doll was colored with a little gold and brown highlights and the wings got a touch of stamping over the embossed gold shapes.

The background is a mix of painted surfaces splattered with gold over gold embossed pattern.

I think I must work in gold and browns quite a bit because I found lots of gold scraps in my pile of goodies. This piece was already cut into a tag and I decided to use the shape already cut.

I die cut a bumblebee from another scrap but only had enough to get part of the bee. I decided to go with it and attach the bee to the side of the tag. I used alcohol inks to color a glass cut button and added a wildflower to the tag.

I also stamped the fragments onto the seam binding before I died it to coordinate. I forget sometimes that you can stamp on the ribbon too!

I added the fragment touches by stamping onto tissue paper with brown archival ink and then decoupaging the pieces to the tag.

For my next card I had an ATC started with an embossed bee and I decided to stamp the fragments on the corners and over the top of the embossed bee. I used embossing ink and then sprinkled with gold embossing powder to add a glitz to the background.

I found a gold background panel and stamped another fragment in the corners with brown ink and then layered everything with gears, old watch faces along with the quote chip.

I finally found a beautiful pink background with hints of gold and decided to add golden bits of fragments stamped over the background.

I found a die cut arch and it fit perfectly with the architecture arch and stamped that into the arch. I heat embossed with the gold embossing powder.

The pink was the distress oxide smeared on the craft mat and spritzed with water. This background seemed perfect for the little flower girl paper doll.

I finished her with some flower accents to soften all the gold embossing.
Have a happy Saturday and remember you still have time to play along in the 'Water, Water, Everywhere' challenge until 11:55 pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, July 16th, 2019.
