Hello friends from Craftworld! I loved so many posts around the year. I think my fellow DT’s are so incredibly talented, so it was really difficult to choose just one. But this post by Christine gave me all kind of ideas to use in different ways my stamps, that is why I loved it, it shows me several ways to stamp with the same stamps getting such a different array of styles. Thanks Christine!
Thanks to everyone who has made this blog possible: Linda Trace, Mary Dawn Quiridongo and all my DT friends, and of course all of you crafty friends who have been such a great sport from the beginning. I wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and a New Year filled with love, peace and health ( and why not, a few new craft supplies?) !!!
Christine and I’d like to show you some ideas on random stamping. The
new HA catalogue has lots of stamps that are perfect for random
stamping, but in fact you can use every type of stamp.
Here’s what I’ve got for you:
1) Cut it out!
never tried this before, but I love it: Stamp some different images and
cut the whole stamped area out. Adhere it with dimensional adhesive and
fall in love 😉
keep your color scheme simple your card does not get too messy. But I’ve
seen some cards with beautiful randomly stamped flowers in different
colors. It may work if you keep a balance!
wowed when you remove the mask. But be careful: Not every stamp will
work for this! If you have the outlines of an image stamped too often
you may not identify your image anymore.
background look messy. If this happens, add some vellum to “soften” your
background and use a simple image. What do you think?
easier if you don’t stamp them straight. You don’t have to be that
careful and you don’t have a focus on one sentence. (If you choose
images and only one of them is straight this will be in the focus – if
you want it that way or not)
background with different images in a light color and add one image in a
darker color on top this will pop! Again: Don’t use too many colors,
otherwise your card will look messed up.
use solid images. They don’t “get lost” in the pattern of the paper.
Still: Use a paper that does not have a wild pattern!
Don’t forget there is still a week left in our current challenge. With your submission you will be entered to win this from the FABULOUS Simon Says Stamp:
