This was difficult!! I searched through my stash and all I could find were outline graphic stamp. I did find an Inkadinkado set that looked similar to what the instructros used. I took “Stamp Carving 101” from Julie Balzer at http://balzerdesigns.com/Classroom/ two years ago and it came in very handy!! I traced the stamps on a big eraser, traced the outside, carved them out, and made a shadow of the stamps! Not perfect, but they’ll work for this particular type of card.
Using a graphic stamp that looked like a daisy, but cut in half, I colored each section with my stamp markers in different colors and rotated the stamp several times until I was done with a circle. When I finished, it reminded me of the Spirograph art I played with when I was younger. The Awesome stamp is Unity Stamp.
I used the same method, but scattered the circles on the panel, added some glitter glue, and added the sentiment. I also used sequins and rhinestones.
I arranged this tamp to form a triangle in different colors, added the background paper and some bling. Hey Darlin is Unity Stamp.
These are the stamps I carved myself from the above stamp. I see a few mistakes, but, hey, it’s home made! I added a small strip to the left side, split the panel in three, then went back and put it together, adding dimentionals to the part with the sentiment. I colored the pearls with my alcohol markers to match the inks.
I cut out a rectangle so I could stamp the sentiment inside. I didn’t have time to carve a rectangle stamp. It was 2:30 in the morning, and I couldn’t make another stamp! There is no square layer, it’s just a cast shadow from the front of the card. I carved the diamond shapes the same way I made the larger stamps. I love this color combination. I also added sequins and pearls. I used silver embossing powder on the sentiment. It’s from a baby set from Unity Stamps.
