Hello friends and happy October! I hope you’re all well and hanging in there with all the covid things going on around the country/world as of late. Today I’m sharing how simple it can be to create your own patterned paper using stamps so let’s get into it
Paper Rose Products used: Shell Collection Stamp Set, Henley Shell Stamp, Glenelg Shell Stamp, Brighton Shell Stamp, Aldinga Shell Stamp, The Coorong Shell Stamp, Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, Stitched Rectangles Die Set, Pool Ink, Liquid Glue.
Other products used: A4 sheet of 250gsm white cardstock, Versamark Ink, Powder Bag, Heat Tool, White and Clear Embossing powders, Stamping Platform, Die Cutting Machine, -Simon Hurley Grrr! Ink, foam tape.
Technique: I stamped all the shell images onto the A4 sheet of paper using the Paper Rose Pool ink cube and a brown ink using acrylic blocks randomly to create my own background patterned paper. I then used the second largest stitched rectangle die to cut a panel from it. Using a stamping platform, I stamped the “The Coorong” Shell stamp in pool ink, then restamped it in Versamark before heat setting with clear embossing powder and set aside to cool. I cut a small strip of cardstock and used my brown ink pad direct to paper to colour it, before heat setting it. I then heat embossed my sentiment in white powder. To assemble I foam mounted my sentiment strip, fussy cut around the blue embossed shell and attached it to the left hand side. I then mounted my panel to a card base.
