As a new crafter, stamping is a daunting task! A
hundred million emotions run through you as you prepare your card to stamp. So here’s the conversation I have with myself every.single.time I need to stamp a card:
Should I just type and print a sentiment? No!
Should I stamp it on some scrap cardstock then cut and stick? No
Ok, then, how about I put this all away and just let it be? Not at all.
So then, what I shall do?
Prepare your card, make pencil lines if you must, but just ink that stamp and stamp!
I do exactly that! Ink that stamp and stamp.
Here’s how it all went down:
- The base is no-name brand card stock I purchased from a paper store
- The design paper is Dovecraft Curiosity Corner Papers
- Using the Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Rectangles, I die cut a rectangle and created a stitched edging in the centre of the front panel.
- I’ve stamped the typewriter from the Noted Sizzix Framelits Die and Stamps Set on a piece of scrap card stock and used the coordinating die to cut the image. I used foam tape to pop the typewriter up for a dimensional effect in the centre of the inside fold.
- I cut a piece of designer paper, stamped the Just a note and slid it through a make shift sliced top on the stamped typewriter. Using a skewer, I’ve curled the paper and used foam tape to pop it up for a dimensional effect.
- Using the coordinating stamps with this set I went on to stamp the Hello Friend and Just for you sentiments around the front border.
- My Xyron Mega Tape Runner and some foam tape held this all together.
The stamping is imperfect here, but with time and practise the girl with a tape runner will perfect it.
Thank you for visiting, till then, be kind.
