Three Thanks from One Stamp




It is stamping and cardmaking month at Two Peas in a Bucket!  The first video and challenge was to make three cards using one stamp - using the stamp a different way in each.  I chose a simple flower image and did these three things:

  • For the card on top, I stamped the back side of DSP and cut out the orange flower and the front side of another DSP with only the edge colored in and cut that out as well.
  • For the next card, I stamped the flower image in Baja Breeze on Baja cardstock over and over to make a background.  This was a little more time consuming using a wood mounted stamp since I had to use the Stamp-ah-mah-jig.  It would be a piece of cake with an acrylic stamp.
  • Finally for the card below, I stamped in Versamark and colored with pastels.  After cutting it out I inked the edges with a little Rich Razzleberry ink.  It sort of looks like the white part is stamped but is is just the background paper. 

So you really can get a lot of mileage out of one simple stamp!

I also used the same DSP and greeting stamp set to keep the decision making process to a minimum.


Thanks for visiting me today!

  2. All 3 cards are equally lovely.
    So fun to use the stamp that way. Gives us a different way to look at our stamps.
