Like I’ve said before, I love those bears from the Happier than Happy bundle. So cute! I decided to reverse stamp one so it would look like they were giving a high five! Here’s a video I made of reverse stamping:
Since they are high fiving- the SAB stamp set- Amazing Phrases was perfect for it.
I wanted the background paper (the wonderful Happy Forest DSP that coordinates with the Happier than Happy Bundle) to show as much as possible. That is great with DSP like this- it makes a great background! When I first stamped the “Woo-hoo” on Basic White paper, it was going to cover a lot of the background. So, I decided on vellum.
When you stamp on vellum with regular ink, the ink does not dry (Staz-On ink will dry on vellum). So, I stamped it with Calypso Coral, then added some clear embossing powder and heat set it. Now it’s dry! I die cut with one of the dies from Stylish Shape dies.
“You did it” was also stamped with Calypso, but on Basic White paper. I then fussy cut it.
The Basic Pearls can be colored with Blends markers! I used Calypso Blends on these pearls.
Awe, my favorite chick! I stamped him once regularly, and then reverse imaged him. Here’s the video showing how I do that:
I colored them both with Blends markers. I inked up the new Spiral Die stamp with Bermuda Bay and the Blending Brushes. There’s a couple of things on this card from the new upcoming catalog (I’ll update the product list once they go live):
Spiral Die Stamp
Basic Borders Dies (the hill they are standing on)
When I made this card, I thought it would be cool for a teenager. I showed it to my 15 year old and he laughed and said “those look like teenage chickens. Or surfers. Duuuuuude!” Success!
OK, after I made those butterfly cards that so many people loved, my creative mojo decided to take a long nap. Very long! I always go in my stamp room several times a day and tried for the last two weeks to think of something. I could hear my creativity saying “stop! I need a break!”
The last few days I thought of something and I finally completed it today!
I wanted to make those crocs look like they REALLY liked it each other. So, I did the reverse stamping.
See my video here:
After I made it, I came up with some other ideas! Love that!
