Hello, my stamping friends. Today I want to share a technique I learned at Club Scrap hop to introduce their new stamp kit Dahlias.
I made two cards to enter into the Unity Stamp sketch challenge, but I missed the deadline.
Card Number One
I went ahead and shared it with the group and I had someone ask how I did the inking on this card.
First, I stamped the flower from the Everything Joyful & Beautiful kit on specialty paper, but you can use any nice card stock available. I used Ranger Archival Ink. I then created a rectangular mask using low tac masking paper. I used the grid on my cutting pad to align the rectangle so it would come out perfectly centered on the paper. Then, using four different colors of distress ink and a sponge, I dabbed the colors making sure the paper stayed in place.
Once you remove the masking paper, you are left with a beautiful frame. Then I stamped the sentiment and the three hearts that came in the kit. I then stamped the three hearts on white cardstock and used the same inks and used a circle punch.
I matted it with violet card stock and popped it up on top as well as the three circles to follow the sketch.
Next time, I’ll take pictures as I go along.
Card Number Two
This card was also inspired by the Dahlias post at Club Scrap.
They showed cased a card stamped with white ink on black cardstock. It is not exactly the same because I added hearts instead of buttons.
I used the Remembering You blooms kit using only the flower which I stamped several times with Dew Drop Brilliance fast-drying pigment ink in Platinum Planet, and added some silver drops and a butterfly punched out of patterned paper. The layered hearts are from my stash.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and the links for more information. Stay tuned or the next challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
