Hello everyone! Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Creating a “notecard” to remember is so easy when you have a great 6X6 background stamp. Impression Obsession’s collection of 6X6, red rubber (for that perfect image) rubber stamps is massive. With over 280, deeply etched, full of amazing detail, 6X6 rubber stamps to choose from you will be in “stamp heaven” for a long, long time.
For this blog post I am focusing on the “Pixel Daisy” image. Because I was wanting to create a number of “any occasion I need them for” cards, I kept the process super simple and fast. Yes, pigment ink is my choice for ink for “oh, so many versatile reasons”. Pigment ink can mimic so very many “specialty inks” when you know how to use them and I love that the projects I made with them “30 plus years ago” look as bright and vibrant as when I made them. There is simply no visible fading in any of my “pigment ink” created projects.
To create these easy cards, I loaded my 6X6, Impression Obsession, Pixel Daisy stamp onto the clear handle that is attached to my Cathie Allan, Position-it. This positioner/re-positioner (it is both) can handle all size of stamps from 1X1 inch stamps to 8X8.5 inch stamps or you can build a “huge” collage with assorted stamps. It is not only just for cling and clear stamps but it also will handle your wood handled stamps.
I stamped the image on my 6X6 piece of Super Stock (still my favorite, favorite cardstock), applied color with my brush applicators, and then restamped the detail back into the design. The following card has 3 panels … I could not stop, lol.
I then attached “however” many panels to my 6X6 card base3, added ribbon and custom made embellishments. My choice of pigment ink was Tsukineko. Versacolor for the color in the image. The detail was from their quick-dry, pigment ink, Versafine. I stamped on the vellum with their new outstanding Stazon, pigment ink …. Yes “this to die for” pigment Stazon comes in several colors, white included!! You will love the detail on your non-porous materials!
Then I began to play, creating more cards in different colors, some have only one panel (the front panel) and some have 2. I just played adding text images from Impression Obsession and scrap die-cuts that were in my “scrap, die-cut box”. Most of these were from Impression Obsession as well.
So, take an afternoon for you and create a bevy of cards to share with your favorite people.
Make someone smile today … including yourself 🙂
Happy Stamping Everyone!
