Hello! Unusual title for me, huh? “Amor Vincit Omnia” means, “love conquers all things” in Latin. You’ll understand why I used that phrase shortly. I am so thrilled about today’s post because I can finally tell you that I am a Guest Designer for Stamp Anniething! I really love this company. Their chibi images are absolutely adorable, they use themes that are not often seen (or seen ever) in stamps, they have a beautiful new floral collection of stamps, and they are all about inclusivity. LGBTQIA+, people of color, folks with disabilities…there’s a place for everyone with Stamp Anniething. I am truly honored to have been asked to be a guest with them. This month’s release is the Roman Collection, hence the Latin phrase for my title. The Design Team and I are showcasing a number of products today, so I have 2 cards to share.

This is Cassia. She is such a fun gal to color, and she comes with to accessories- a harp and a basket of flowers. I chose to use the harp today, but you’ll see her with her flowers on Friday.
I colored Cassia with Copics: E33, E35, E37, BV01, BV02, BV04, E57, E49, E59. I also used metallic markers on her cuffs, shoulder plates, and earrings. There are coordinating dies with each of the stamps in this release, so cutting them out is a breeze.
My background was done with the new Basketweave Stencil which is new to this release as well. I inked it heavily where Cassia sits and faded it out, using Shaded Lilac Distress Ink. I embossed the sentiments that came with Cassia in gold, and I also embossed the perimeter of my card base for extra shine.
My second card for today is very different. There’s a new “Hello Bold” die being released, and it has wonderful stitching detail on it, plus it has a shadow layer! I love this die so much that I thought it deserved it’s own card. I sprayed a piece of watercolor paper with Cherry Pie, Lemon Zest, and Turquoise Dylusions sprays. Once it was dry, I die cut the the “Hello” 4 times on the colored watercolor paper, and then an additional 12 times out of white cardstock.
I adhered my colored layer (minus the die cuts) to my card base. Then, I attached 3 of the white “hellos” to each opening. Then, I swapped the position of the colored “hellos” and adhered them to the top. The colors are bold, they have dimension, and I think the overall card is very cool, albeit a simple design. I used ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever to adhere everything.
Tomorrow, I will have another new project to share using an a different stamp set that is being released from Stamp Anniething‘s Roman Collection. I hope you’ll check back to see it. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
