Hello everyone, Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am so excited to share with you my blog post for February. It involves a gorgeous Hydrangea stamp along with a few other stamps and dies from the amazing Heartfelt Creations. This amazing company constantly creates stamps and dies to inspire. Of course, I broke out my pigment inks and I now have a totally awesome collection of Tsukineko’s, StazOn, Pigment ink.
If you are like me … and love to incorporate window plastic or transparencies to your projects, this ink will blow your ‘”stamping on window plastic” mind :). I will also share with you a delightful little cleaner that will clean this “relatively, new ink” off of your rubber stamps and your clear stamps and “nourish your stamps” at the same time.
Let’s check it out!
Using the “StazOn ink” of your dreams, stamp the Heartfelt Creations, hydrangea stamp on your embossable window plastic, immediately (do not wait) clean your stamp with “Ultra Clean”. This cleaner will do a great job of getting your rubber AND clear stamps clean after using this “pigment, StazOn ink” and it is good for your stamps! This product is available through “Frog’s Whiskers Ink”. Color from behind using alcohol markers. Cut out. Using the Patchwork and Pockets die, cut out several hexagons and attach these to a 5X7 piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock with your favorite adhesive. I used “Be Creative” or Sookwang brand tape. With your favorite applicator apple moss green pigment ink to your panel and then pop the hexagons by brushing over with a cyan blue color of pigment ink. Tsukineko has an amazing array of pigment colors and they manufactured the pigment line of ink for Clearsnap so you can use these colors and re-ink these colors interchangeably. Iron with a hot dry iron to instantly set these colors.
Stamp the image “one in a million” onto your clear plastic. Notice that I also stamped it in the “Snowflake, StazOn Pigment” just to show you that you now have a “white StazOn” that gives you amazing whiteness and clarity! Die cut the “Decorative Medallion” from the Heartfelt Creations die and then alter with your pigment inks as shown and emboss with clear embossing powder. Assemble your project as shown in this card format or create more hexagons and more hydrangeas and assemble them to create a gorgeous scrapbook page. That is what I am in the process of doing as this idea simply needs to adorn some of my favorite photos. THANK YOU “Heartfelt Creations” for the constant inspiration!!
Happy Stamping Everyone!
