This is a card I've just finished off and about to deliver. At one of our Saturday craft group meetings we set ourselves the task of choosing a stamp and seeing what different stamping techniques we could use with it. The stamp I chose was the Hero Arts cling stamp Silhouette Flower.
In the card above the stamp was inked with VersaMark ink and stamped on to pale blue card. Three different colours of Stampendous Tinsel embossing powders, Blue, Green and Aqua were scattered diagonally across the image and then heat embossed. The backing papers are from the Cuddly Buddly download A Patchwork of Papers Blue. A Stampin' up sentiment stamp was coloured using a marker pen, stampedon to blue card and die cut using an oval nestabilities die. Brads, gingham ribbon and punched circles were the added embellishments.
Here are a few of the other cards I made using this stamp.
To create the image on the left the stamp was inked with VersaMark ink, stamped onto glossy white card and heat embossed using white embossing powder. When this had cooled a blue distress ink was sponged over and beyond the edge of the image. The backing papers are from the Cuddly Buddly download A Patchwork of Papers Blue.
The card on the right has three different stamping techniques on it. The top left square uses the same technique as the card on the left. On the top right and bottom left squares the two blue backing card squares were stamped with the Stampin' up French Script stamp using two different types of blue ink. The Silhouette Flower stamp was inked with VersaMark ink, stamped over the top of the script and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. For the bottom right square the stamp was inked with VersaMark ink, stamped on to blue card and then heat embossed using white embossing powder.
For this card the stamp was inked with Encore Metallic Blue ink and Stamped on to pale blue card to give a tonal effect. The marble backing paper is from the Fred She Said Download Blue Pansies.
For the card on the right the stamp was inked with VersaMark ink, stamped on to pale blue card and then blue and green Cosmic Shimmer powders were brushed over it.
For this card the Silhouette Flower stamp was again inked with VersaMark ink, stamped on to white vellum and heat embossed using white embossing powder.
This time the image was created by inking the stamp with VersaMark ink and stamping on to pale blue card.
The topper on this card was made by inking the stamp with VersaMark ink, stamping on to white vellum and then dabbing and brushing shades of blue and green chalks carefully over the top.
For this one the stamp was inked with VersaMark ink, stamped on to white card and then heat embossed using Stampendous Disco Black embossing powder.
And finally this one was created using one inch squares punched from all the pieces which were left over or where the technique didn't work first time.
I enjoyed using this one stamp plus different types of card, ink and colouring mediums to create these different cards. It shows how versatile one simple stamp can be.
