Typografia Motivate Blog Hop @ STAMPlorations

{My DT work for STAMPlorations}

Good morning world! 
We are excited to bring you a special blog hop today at STAMPlorations.
We've just released the first in a series of TYPOGRAFIA stamps in the 
 store couple days ago featuring 13 of the 33 stamps in the TYPOGRAFIA Motivate line.
Please allow me to say thank you for dropping by my blog to view the projects I have created using three different typografia stamps.
This is going to be a long post so please have a cuppa to keep you company.

My first creation is a tag:
I stamped Be The Change stamp directly on the background using Versafine black ink pad. It's a lie if I say I don't feel nervous about stamping directly on a finished background. I'm glad this one turned out perfect the second time after the first stamping didn't please me. The beauty about acrylic stamp is it lets me place back on the stamping image accordingly to press down the second time to make it looks better than before.
I hardly use yellows in my creation so for this tag, I decided to create a cheery tag in summer hence the choice of bright yellow here and there.

My second project is an art journal page:
The stamp used is call Plan A. There are many ways to use this stamp. One way is by stamping the quote on card stock then you may cut the letters or the word. Here I cut out WORK and adhered on the right side.
Lastly my third project is a rustic notebook cover:
I have to say this proof to be one of my favorite stamps! The quote is just too special and meaningful. I am one of those who often make mistakes while creating and will think of a way to fix it with mixed media elements. 
I will have a tutorial on how I achieve the rustic look. I only played with paints and gesso to get the effect and for pattern, I used texture paste through crisscrossed ARTplorations stencil. Stay tuned in October for the tutorial on STAMPlorations blog..
So there you have seen my projects using the recent typografia motivate stamps.
I am sure you have already created ideas with these gorgeous stamps in your brain this minute. Am I right?
I wish you all the best of luck in the draw. You could be the lucky one to score your choice of 3 TYPOGRAFIA Motivate stamps. The winner will be announced on August 29 at STAMPlorations blog.
Meanwhile I'm taking my work into these challenges:
