Adventures in Stamping

I want to post more, but this last week both of my girls were sick, then generously shared their cold with me. So it's been a rough week. 

Anyway...the challenge for this week in the Adventures in Stamping group was tape and stamping.
I had a really hard time coming up with an idea for this one. I have some striping tape that I haven't used yet, but couldn't think of a way to use it. I went through so many different ideas before ending up with this design. I LOVE it! It took me forever to land with this, I kept messing up nails, changing my design, it was frustrating, but the end result is beautiful.

I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors- Easy Going, then did one coat of Sinful Colors- Glass Pink for a little shimmer. It was at this point that I decided to actually use tape. So I put a piece of scotch tape down the center and painted Orly-Miss Conduct on half of the nail. Then stamped with Konad Special White and BM-321. Topped with one coat of Out the Door.

I think it's amazing. But I may be biased :)

I think this would be really pretty in the sun, but it's currently snowing here in Idaho, so I probably won't get a chance to see it in the sun this time :(


  1. Julie, I love this! May try to duplicate it, but I have a hard time with taping. Isn't AIS great?

  2. I love it, but I love most things you do!
