Simple Stamping doesn’t have to be boring! Check out this 3D effect.
Hello and Welcome to the Totally Techniques Blog Hop! I’m Jackie Noble from Porirua in New Zealand.
I’m super excited to join this International Design Team. I felt so honoured when Zoe Tant talked to me about it while we were in Germany at OnStage Live last November. I’ve followed the Totally Techniques Blog Hop for several years and have got heaps of inspiration from the projects shared over that time by many amazing Demonstrators from around the world!
This month, our featured technique is Simple Stamping. While it is the theme for our January Blog Hop – because of the time difference – it’s already February here in New Zealand!
Beautifully Braided meets Simple Stamping
I love several of the images in the Beautifully Braided Stamp set and have chosen two ( plus a sentiment) to be the focus on my #simplestamping project – the large botanical image and the long narrow strip pattern.
The long narrow stamp is used to create a frame for the botanical image. I’ve also done some offset stamping of the botanical image to give the illusion of a 3D effect. Photopolymer stamps make it so easy to do this,
(Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)
Stamp sets: Beautifully Braided
Paper/card: Mint Macaron, Very Vanilla
Ink: Mint Macaron, Early Espresso, Soft Seafoam
Accessories: Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins
Non-Stampin’ Up! Items: Post-it notes
Additional Project Photos
I stamped the large image in Mint Macaron (above) and then again in Soft Seafoam (below). When I stamped it, I offset the Soft Seafoam image a little to give a 3D look.
I wanted to make frame around the top part of the botanical image.
To work out how much of the stamp I needed to ink up to go across the top of the frame, I used the image on the clear sheet that the stamps come on. By positioning this sheet across the stamped image on my Very Vanilla, I could see how many of the pattern pieces I needed to ink up. So using Early Espresso, I inked up five patterns which I then stamped the along the top of my cardstock. Next I Inked up six patterns which were stamped down the sides and lastly the bottom of the frame. For the bottom part of my frame I only needed one of the patterns on one side, and two on the other.
The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso and then in Soft Sea Foam that is again offset slightly.. Once the stamping was finished, the Very Vanilla was stuck to the front of the card base.
As usual – I like carrying elements from the front of my card through to the inside. This time I stamped the image I’d used for the frame onto the bottom right corner.
Now it’s time to see what projects the other blog hop participants have shared today.
Until next time
