What a fabulous stamp set to add to your collection. Here are some ideas I created with recipes of what I used to make certain items stand out. If you take my Stamping Basics and Beyond stamp class, you would find yourself using some of these technques, kicking them up a notch.
Remember, this stamp set is available for $17.95 or only $5 with a $50 purchase exclusively during the month of September here on my WEBSITE.
Sometimes, it’s the simple details that can make a card standout. Don’t you just love fall colors? I created the card idea below using a RANDOM Stamped Background on swatches of cardstock and matching ink in Fern, Pomegranate & Goldrush. Super easy and effective.
Using the same color palette of Fern, Pomegranate & Goldrush, I used our Confetti dry embossing folder, Circle Diffuser, Artbooking to cut the leaves in these sizes (two of the leaves are then stamped with the veins), and flaxen twine. After I embossed the dot paper, I took goldrush ink and lightly swiped it across the dots to create this look. The leaves were sanded before I stamped the interior. The vine leaves were stamped in 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation Fern ink.
Another card idea using the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation technique is shown below. Plus I also used Rock N Roll to create the pumpkin on the card. I cricut cut the pumpkin and inked the stamp up in Tangerine ink. Then I rolled the edes of the stamp in Goldrush and stamped it on the cricut cut pumpkin. Without reinking, I stamped the images in generational stamping onto the col. white card piece. Add some twine and you’re done!
Stamping and piecing the pumpkin is super easy to do. After creating two cricut cut pumpkins on tangerine cardstock, I then stamped both of them using the same colors and technique above (Rock N Roll). Keeping one pumpkin as your base, sponge with Fern ink to color in the stem. Then you take the other stamped pumpkin and cut out the three center ‘ribs’ and sponge each rib with Goldrush ink. Pop up with pop dots onto the cutout, stamped pumpkin image #1 and add your twine. Loved the stem, berries and leaves … using a small waterbrush to color in the vine leaves. I also did the TWO TONE stamping of the message but first dipping the message in Tangerine Ink, then dipping the top 1/2 into Goldrush to give it a two tone look. (Sorry, the tangerine ink should be available soon)
I hope you enjoyed learning some of these ideas. I highly recommend you taking this Stamping Basics and Beyond class so you can learn how cool these simple, yet effective techniques can change a look on a card or scrapbook page.
