How to Use One Stamp Four Ways: Part 1 by Crystal

Hi and welcome to Simply Stamps University! Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing projects with you that are a part of a series called ‘How to Use One Stamp Four Ways’. During this series, I’ll show you four different projects using the same stamp to create four unique cards. The purpose of this series is to show you how much creativity can be inspired by one single stamp!    


The stamp I selected to feature throughout this series is a wood block craft stamp found on Simply Stamps called ‘Happy Thanksgiving Daisies.’ 

Before I began making this card, I chose to remove the sentiment so I could use the card for any occasion. To do this, I removed the stamp from the wood block and simply trimmed the daises from the stamp.

 

  1. I started with a couple pieces of white card stock and my Big Shot die cutting machine. I thought the scalloped edges would look nice for this particular card, so I used the die cutting machine to cut one piece of white card stock.
  2. Using a white embossing powder, I stamped the daises in embossing ink and applied heat.
  3.  After the card stock cooled off, I used pastel inks to color the background. I used three different colors and blended them together by randomly stamping across the card stock. You will see the white embossing resists the ink colors, leaving the space where the daisies were stamped white.
  4. Finally, I took a large piece of card stock and folded it in half, then adhered the decorated card stock to the larger piece.

This card is now ready to go for whichever occasion I choose to use it for, or can be given with other cards as a gift set.
