Using stamps to make designer paper


Good morning all. 

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend? I've taken a few days away from the blog to relax a little. The weather has at last been a bit more agreeable, so we got outside and did a little more work on our camper conversion. It's slowly coming along. 

Today's card is an example of how to make gorgeous designer paper using the stamping technique. The flowery paper you see behind the main panel of the card is actually white card stock that has been stamped by hand.  

Established Elegance, En Francais, Stampin' Up!

This is such a good way to make use of those flowery or scrolled stamps that come with many sets, and means you can have paper that co-ordinates with whatever your project is. 

I used a brayer for the main panel (in Sahara Sand) and then stamped on top of that with the En Francais script stamp; using the Established Elegance set to stamp the main images. This card has a vintage feel to it, which I love. 

Really quick, simple and effective. 

The colours I used were Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse; teamed with Chocolate Chip. If you'd like to purchase Stampin' Up! craft supplies then please don't hesitate to get in touch ~ I'd be only too pleased to help. the_crafty_hippy@yahoo.co.uk
