Give stamps a real workout by using them to create a background, images to cut out for embellishments, and even words to use as the journaling for the layout.
ONE • Make a background by stamping with a mesh stamp and permanent ink Stamp on the corners to make a frame for the page. TWO • Make small embellishments with themed stamps. Stamp over white cardstock with pigment ink, then heat emboss with clear embossing powder. THREE • Color the stamped images with a mix of distress inks. Cut them out. FOUR • Stamp a few words in the same way, then cut them out and arrange the “journaling” in a random way.
