Hello everyone It’s my turn to host this week’s TLC Challenge on Splitcoast and I am going to make you work today.....well, maybe not work, work but a labor of love. We are going to combine lots of different small stamps to create something wonderful...Small Stamp Creations
Here are the deets:
1. Look through all your stamps (clear stamps work best) and select the smallest ones: flowers, flourishes, hearts, stars, snowflakes, Fleur De Lis, what ever you have will work.
2. Pick out several ink colors...or use just one color...what ever works for your design.
3. Find the center on a piece of light cardstock and mark it with a pencil. You can also use a round, oval, or square die and trace around it with a pencil for your guide.
4. Starting in the middle, stamp your center stamp over your center mark (this stamp can be larger then the outside stamps) and work out from there with lots of different stamps. After you stamp your center, you can use a ruler, compass, or eyeball it to mark where you want the next stamp placed. For example, think of a clock and stamp your next layer of stamps at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock and then for the 3rd layer stamp between the stamps in the 2nd layer. This is only a sample...you can create any design you would like.
5. You can create tags, note cards, or a beautiful wall decoration with your motifs. Also, instead of a center design, you can also create a border design...the sky is the limit
6. Have fun!!
I made some Christmas tags by using a diecut as the base and created my design around the diecut shape. The middle image was stamped first and then each outer layer was stamped...I just eyeballed the placement so don't look too close!!!
Thanks for stopping by today....I hope to see you in the TLC Gallery with your beautiful creation. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
