Stamping is fun . especially when one can get such cute stamps .
I bought these stamps from lincraft store .
These are so immensely helpful when you want create own card toppers .
First step: Stamp
Stamp the images with various colored inks etc . but ensure you don’t stamp all on one single paper
Stamp each image on papers that is atleast the size of small note book ..
Reason : You can then cut these stamped images to any shape or size for your card
Second step :
Let the stamped images to dry out .
Third step : Colour
Use sketches ,texters .paints .colour pencils ,water colour pencils . etc – infact any medium to colour .
Be careful not smudge the image .
In some cases you can skip this step, if you are stamping using colored inks etc or stamped an image that does not need any colouring
Final step :
Cut out the stamped image in required shape or size as needed ..for your card
Doing so , also gives us more card making ideas and also saves huge amount of time when you are actually designing or making your greeting card .
Lincraft store had this massive and attractive Sale which ofcourse I could not resist.That’s when and where I purchased few beautiful stamps.I must say these clear stamps were really really beautiful . The very night before I forgot my ideas I made this simple “Congratulations” card
Step 1 : White card ( I have pre cut card making it easier.) IF you don’t have precut card ,the cut off 6inches by 8inches card stock (white)
Fold into exactly half along the longer length giving th 6 X 4 inch card
Step 2 : I have this red back ground paper with light glitter effect .I am not sure of what type of paper .Hence I will call it the background paper.
I cut a rectangle piece of background paper 5.5inches by 3.5 inches .Keep this on aside
Step 3 : I cut another rectangle piece of paper which is slightly smaller than the red background paper .For the below stamping use this piece
Step 4 : I used the clear stamp that I bought from lincraft to stamp the smaller white paper at the right hand bottom corner .
Step 5 : once the stamped image is nice and dry , I colored it using the water color pencils . Then pasted the red rhinestone /bling in the center
Step 6 : Then I used another clear sentiment stamp of “Congratulations” in the center of the paper .. Leave it to dry .
Step 7 : Back to the card stock that we made in step one .,I pasted the red background paper on the card stock ,Once my stamped images were dry,I finished the card by pasting the smaller white paper on red background paper .
That’s all .!! Is that not a simple idea??!
