Wanderlust Expressions 1 & 2, Typografia Wanderlust + Icons Blog Hop

Today I am sharing 3 projects made with the newly released Wanderlust series of stamps from STAMPlorations.  The series is made up of icons and Typografia sentiments and is a perfect fit for the Focus on the sentiments challenge we currently have running.

I have used the Typografia sentiments and the icons together to create 3 different projects.

My first project is a tag, I used water colour pens to create a wash of colour on my tag, which I then stamped the travel inspired icon images onto.  I love the strak black against the dreamy pinks and blues.  I chose to cut the sentiment up and use it spaced out over the entire tag causing the eye to travel taking in all of the artwork.

For my second project I used a Kraft card based and brown ink to stamp the compass and pin points. I then stamped the sentiment onto vellum and heat embossed in white.  I added a few white ink splatters for further interest.

Lastly I have a distressed card, the sentiment reads "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step", I wanted my card to look like it had travelled a thousand miles to distressed it by tearing the edges and adding creases to it.

The sentiments and imagery in this series are so versatile and can be used in cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor and so much more.

Here's a link to the series

The products I used are listed below



  1. These are all so much fun. All of the new
    sentiments are on my wish list. They are just
    so AWEsome!

  2. Love all of your backgrounds which sets off the stamping very well - hope you get your craft store and have a fab journey with it - enjoy

  3. I love how completely different each
    piece is! I like how you cut up the sentiment
    for your tag. The sentiment stamped on
    vellum is a great way not to overpower your
    fun background. The distressing on your 2nd card
    is perfect for the sentiment :-)

  4. Awesome cards! Sure to bring a smile!

  5. Great cards! I especially like the CAS design of the second one!

  6. very pretty cards - love the color combo on the first card

  7. I love the way you combined the sentiments and travel icons, and especially love the tag!

  8. These are all fabulous! I really like the second with the kraft and the vellum!
