Right moving along the bus after what seems like an eternity I am taking part in one of Just for Fun challenges their theme this week is ” use your favourite stamp ” well it only seems fitting that I should take part using my favourite stamp on one of my favourite sites challenges. Neet has chosen the theme for us this week. Although I have lots of favourite stamps I have chosen the one I ” go too ” more often than all of the others and looking back on my cards it has turned up on quite a few of them ! It may not be the most beautiful or unusual but it is the most used so therefore my favourite. Infact if you look at my new blog header the stamp has been used on two of the projects !
I have made three projects using it and here they are
Ok this is the before shot not my favourite stamp a wooden dish that I use for window displays in my shop .
So my favourite stamp is this Stampin Up text script which I also have as an embossing folder. Here I have made my own tissue tape stamping the script all over with Stazon ink and then adhered it to the plate with Gloss and Seal. I then added Ranger crackle glaze and left it to dry I did also use a base coat of Gesso before I started the background. When it was dry I added distress ink over the crackle and then removed it in various places with my sanding block. I cut out four circles of card and followed the same procedure just using my sanding block on the edges.
The script stamp has this time been embossed with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder a silk leaf added and using a S U beveled windowpane placed an embossed butterfly underneath onto a piece of card that I have also stamped the script onto with distress ink. Ribbon and a button for a little extra something somethin !
Here I have made a pocket sewing two pieces of DP together and making some leaves from grungeboard using my tattered florals die , coloured them with DI inks embossed them and then coated them with glossy accents and put them in the little pocket on the front of the envelope. Used my script stamp again and stamped onto velum with Stazon opaque white ink and then embossed it in a random fashion with DI embossing powder. This fits inside the envelope and a message can be written on to the back of the tag. Made a flower again with the aid of my big shot and blah blah blah same technique as above and attached it to the leaves.
Do pop over to Just for Fun to see the fabulous inspirational pieces by the lovely ladies , Zoe, Neet and Von.
