Wednesday Stamp Projects

Kerri’s card allows her to share a new technique. I’ll let her explain:

Creating a chalkboard effect with's very simple. Stamp with white ink ( I used a pigment ink-- don't use the the white stazon) on a piece of black cardstock. Then use chalks to color over the image. Wipe off the excess powder with microfiber towel (lint free) until all that's left is just the chalked image. You will see the haze like you do when you erase on a chalk board.. I did this on both the front of the card and the inside greeting. I can see this being perfect for end of the year teacher cards and back to school cards as well.

On this card, Kerri did a paper casting technique with toilet paper. It's very cool and very practical-- who doesn't have toilet paper lying around!!

Sherri used a little "bee" digi-stamp: colored it with watercolors pencils, markers, glitter glaze, and cut it out.

Nadya made her own printed background papers for both projects, something she loves to do on her projects. Nadya’s card has a stamped gray/blue cardstock with lots of different swirls. Then she cut lots of different shapes out of it using the cricut and several different cartridges. She then used those die cuts on the card.

After making patterned paper with stamps, and cutting out shapes with the cricut, Nadya uses them on the layout too. She stamped her own background paper for the layout, as well as the title. Which means her embellishments, background paper, and title were all done using stamps!

Jamie used The Stamping Boutique's Rainy Cynthia and her copic markers!

Amy used a pumpkin stamp and added some stickles to it. She stamped it onto a yellow circle so it would be better seen, then glued that to the black scalloped circle.

Barb painted her stamps, then embossed the images with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water to get a shiny look. She then popped each matted square on 3D dots, alternating with leftover gold coin confetti squares of green and black for a fun border.
