Doodling with Stamps!

I used to love to doodle and sketch in my notebook, although it was usually hearts around the name of my crush. "Mrs. Emily So-and-So", you know how it is. Math always went by quicker with a notebook full of flowers, shooting stars and hearts. 

Sweet Stamp Shop's newest releases, Kiss Me and Chalkboard Sign are the grown up version of doodling in my math notebook, and so much prettier too!
Every part of the Chalkboard Sign is perfect in creating a doodled card look! I especially love the sentiment stamp. It has this great sketchy look to it,  and works great when masked. Since bright neon color blocks are in, I thought it would look cool to stamp "way" as a gradient. In fact, it's super easy to do!
Washi tape

|1|  Gather your materials, including the Chalkboard sign set.

|2|  Mask the part of the sentiment that you don't want to include with washi tape.

|3|  Ink stamp with  Dandelion Ink pad.

|4|  Ink middle of stamp with Tangelo Ink pad.

|5|  Ink the last remaining part of stamp with Bubblegum Ink pad.

|6|  Remove tape and stamp card.
Sweet Stamp Shop's  other release, Kiss Me is just as perfect in creating a fun doodled effect to your card. Try stamping the trendy love heart image to create a layered look--it looks so cute.
That little kissing arrow sentiment is so stinkin cute! Totally doodle-icious! Seriously, these sets are so perfect for achieving the fun notebook doodle look. 

Tell me, did you ever doodle in your notebook's during school? What did you draw?

    1. Lisa, thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :-) One more tip: apply the lightest color first. That way you won't have to risk staining dark ink onto your light ink pads. I did yellow, then orange then pink! Hope you try it out!

  21. What a great technique for using only part of a stamp! I am so reluctant to cut my stamps apart, as so many others do...masking makes so much more sense to me! TFS.

    1. Caryn, I agree with you. I couldn't cut apart sentiment stamps, the stamps would never line up or work perfectly as a grouping again!
