Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a quick scrapbook layout featuring Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils. Stampers Anonymous makes some amazing rubber stamps, including the exclusive Tim Holtz collection. I recently returned from a vacation in Germany, and the Tim Holtz beer and pretzel blueprint stamps were absolutely perfect to accent one of many photographs I took while traveling. In Germany, beer is often cheaper than soft drinks or coffee.
This is the Stampers Anonymous stamp set I used. The set measures 7 x 8.5 and there are four separate cling stamps. I stamped the mug of beer and the pretzel onto watercolor paper and coloured with a Tombow marker, using a wet paintbrush to spread the colour.
Stampers Anonymous also has a set of 9 acrylic blocks that are perfect for mounting cling, foam or acrylic stamps. I really like the light weight of these and the large assortment of block sizes. The grid pattern on makes stamp placement easy and accurate. I used Tim Holtz foam alphabet stamps and black paint to stamp the page title.
I also used a honeycomb stencil and some white embossing paste to add a little texture to the background.
After the embossing paste dried, I adhered my photo and the stamped images. I added a few strips of torn patterned paper, a couple of brads and some journaling. Another layout is done – very simple, but I think the stamped beer and pretzel are just the perfect embellishment to the page.
If you ever get a chance, be sure to travel to Germany. It’s such a beautiful country.
