Using the Same Stamp !


I though I would show you all this morning some card I made using the same stamp.
I'm sure, like me, we all have stamps which we just use for one specific purpose. I recently attended a workshop at The Stamp Pad, in Saddleworth, where the purpose of the workshop was to look at how you can use one stamp in different ways. Therefore making the most of the crafty stash we all have!

This is a gorgeous cling stamp from Hero Arts. This was stamped onto white card and embossed with clear embossing powder. We then 'painted' with waterd mica powders to produce the stunning colours you see.
Again the stamp was stamped and embossed, this time onto pink cardstock. Embossed with glittery embossing powder. You can see the design of the stamp clearer on this picture.
Again this has been stamped onto white and embossed. Because the stamp wasn't as long as the panel I wanted, it was stamped twice and the ribbon covers the join. When doing this be careful to ensure you get the stamp the same way up or you have birdies doing very odd things like flying upside down! !  Can you tell what I did to start with! The left hand side of the peach panel was stamped with a text stamp just to give some interest.

Well off to do some crafting now, watch this space for more projects.

Happy crafting
