Thursday Stamp Projects

Erin stamped the background shape with a texture stamp and star stamp, using a diecut negative (star) as a stencil. She used a stamp and her copic markers to make the boy and stars embellishments. Finally she cut out her title, then stamped overtop of it, and coloured it with her copics.

Catherine’s blue card uses the "kissing technique". This technique is perfect for adding texture to your solid image stamps. For this technique she chose a solid coloured stamped (medallion) and inked it with light blue ink. Then she took a script writing background, and stamped and inked that with navy blue ink. She then pressed the script stamp onto the medallion stamp and then pressed the medallion stamp to the paper. Two toned textured image!

Catherine’s purple flower card uses the "popping pastels" technique. To achieve this look she stamped her image with versamark ink on white cardstock then rubbed chalk over the image. The chalk sticks to the versamark but not the cardstock giving a soft muted effect.

On Jennifer’s layout, she masked the area around the photo, then stamped the numerous hearts to create a border. She stamped the white hearts and embossed them. Then she cut them out and raised them up using dimensionals.

Jennifer’s stamped the image on her card using Stazon ink and then colored it with watercolor crayons and a blender pen.

Robin decided to stamp her layout background you see on the upper left. Then she stamped the butterfly with a glue pad and then sprinkled with glitter.

Robin’s card uses the same butterfly stamp on the card, but a different approach. First she sprayed the cardstock with water until saturated. Then she scrunched the cardstock, opened it out and continued to scrunch until she got the desired look. She ironed the cardstock dry, and stamped the butterfly and the sentiment. She created 2 butterflies in this way, glued the bottom one down, and then lifted the top one up with foam glue dots.
