Keeping with the Eastern Blooms theme for the week, that was the main stamp set used here. I used every single stamp in the box!
There are four different ways of using stamps on scrapbook pages here:
1. Create your own background image. How often do we need a specific something or other to go with our project and can’t find just the thing? Here’s a very easy way to just make your own!
2. Create an embellishment strip with embossing. I embossed those Chocolate Chip vines onto Whisper White card. I tried it first on Baja Breeze, but it was just too “heavy” looking. So another technique is to emboss onto Whisper white and then just sponge on ink, giving a much softer, textured finish. I’ve left some “whiteness” here, too, to add to the effect.
4. Cut out your image and add a 3D embellishment. The arrangement of flowers in the corner add that final visual texture that changed the page from same old same old to “finished”.
I am taking bookings now for May for Stamping Classes – Layouts, cards, and off the page projects available.
