Card Stamping on Die Cuts


YEP! One last post for today, and I'm done! I just couldn't stop stamping! So, I don't know if this fabulous idea counts as an actual stamping technique, BUT mixed with the right die cut and embellishments you can make a lot of texture, which is something most stamping can't claim. 

This fun card showcases Sweet Stamp Shop's newest release, Baby Love. This set has the most adorable baby motifs and designs, but I loved the cloud and rainbow so much, that I had to use them first. I guess I'm not the traditional stamper. I love stamping, and I love texture and embellishments. So, I like to combine the two in new ways.

When stamping on white cardstock, you can draw attention to stamp because the white space causes the eye to rest on what's going on--the stamp! However, white cardstock is kinda flat and one-dimensional, kinda like your math teacher's personality. What do you do? Stamp on patterned paper? Never use white cardstock again? NO! Do what I did to get some texture---die cut a block of patterned paper, but keep the die cut pieces, and stamp on the embossed cardstock! 

To give it even more texture, I added some pearls to the rainbow to make it pop and then added a painted chipboard cloud, tape, patterned paper and fabric sticker sentiment!

Thanks so much for stopping buy! Make sure to check out this post for a tutorial on flip stamping using Sweet Stamp Shop stamps, as well as this post featuring a tutorial on how to trim stamps to make a gift holder.

I'll be back with more fun projects featuring Sweet Stamp Shop stamps on February 22nd. Mark you calendars, and stop by!

    1. AJ, Thank you very much for your kind comments. It's so wonderful to hear them :-) Sometimes, I just want to put everything on a card! It takes a lot of restraint on my part to make it work! Can you believe it took me an hour and a half, and countless mistakes to get the card to a place where I loved it? Hee hee hee!

  5. So fun!!! Love the little cloud with the heart hanging from it and the texture that the die cut adds, especially with a few of the hexagons popped out and fun patterned papers adding pops of color.
