Hi everyone, It’s Mona here, and I am super excited to be a guest on this beautiful blog! Today I have three inspirations for you with some really amazing stamp sets from The Gray Muse shop. I hope you will enjoy them.

For my first card, I used the super cute Cats in the Craft Room Stamp Set. When I held this amazing set in my hands I knew that I wanted to make a pop-up box card with it. I stamped and colored the images with my Copic Markers and put together a box card. I have used Lawn Fawn Die-cutting plates and papers to create the box. You can find the full list of supplies on my blog here.



Once I put the pop-up card together, I missed something from the card, so I stamped the image from the Be Kind Stamp Set, and after a quick coloring I just fussy-cut the flowers and leaves, and then adhered them to the background. After this I was really happy with the result, so it was done. :)



For my second card I used the Happiness Blooms Stamp Set. I started by stamping the flower image on Bristol Smooth card stock with Versafine Ink and I heat set it!



When it was done, I colored the image with Arteza Real Brush Pens and in the end of the coloring I added highlights with White Pen. Next, I stamped the same image to a masking magic paper. After a quick and chilly fussy-cutting I covered the colored image with my mask and made an ink blending to the background with various Distress Oxide Inks.



When it was done, I pulled off the masking magic (if you want to see how it looks like, feel free to check my Instagram Story highlights for today, I will show it!). In the end I stamped and heat embossed the beautiful sentiment with white embossing powder and it was ready.



For my last card I used the Hugs Stamp Set, along with the You Grow Girl sentiment set. If you are a crafter, this sentiment set is a must have for you!



For this card I stamped the image to Arteza Expert Watercolor paper with Versafine ink. After a quick heat set, I wet the whole image with clear water and I created a quick painting on it with colorful watercolors and let it dry. For the second coat I have used only black watercolor, but this time I colored only around the “HUGS” sentiment.



I let it dry once more and added more details to the letters with glitter brush marker, white pen and put on them some clear sequins too. I stamped the image in clear embossing ink and used rose gold embossing powder. Before putting the heat embossed sentiment to my card, I splattered the edges with watercolor.



I hope you enjoyed my inspirations, feel free to comment which one is your favorite! I am in LOVE with these fabulous stamp sets. They are well designed and amazing! Thank you so much Ruby for this amazing opportunity, your blog and shop are magical! For more inspirations feel free to follow me on my blog or Instagram. (Shhh I will give away one fabulous The Gray Muse Pin, just check my IG stories for the details) Hugs Mona.
