Hello! May Flaum here to share some ideas for stamping with the cute new Dear Lizzy stamp set! A basic heart is always a welcome stamp in my collection and I had some fun with it making both a card and a scrapbook page.
2. Set the stamp on the center of the hot UTEE and leave it for a few minutes. Once it starts to cool, you should be able to lift the stamp right off. This works best with a simple design.
3. If you’d like to color it, you can use paint or other liquid mediums. If it won’t set, just use a heat tool for a moment which will warm up the UTEE and help the color soak in and set.
It can be a lot of fun – and using a non-stick craft mat you can make a lot of these at once then save them for future cards and projects.
Speaking of cards – I made this one with my heart seal.
I paired the heart and chevron stamp set with some distress ink, a Simon stamp set, and in a few minutes I had this card. Such fun!
The rest of the how-to for the card is:
- Cut a strip of white cardstock on the ends so that it is like a banner. Then coat with liquid adhesive and distress glitter.
- Stamp a square of cardstock with the chevron stamp and tear the edges.
- Use distress stain on a piece of 4×5 cardstock, leaving the edges white.
- Adhere that stamped square, the glittered banner, and the seal to the 4×5 cardstock.
- To finish the card, stamp the ‘just wanted to say’ and ‘love you tons’ stamps on cardstock and add them to your card.
I had so much fun making this card – I decided to keep the glitter and stamps out, and make a layout!
First day of school definitely deserves a layout – and combined with some more Simon exclusive stamps and my big #1 stamp (Tim Holtz) I knew I could make a layout where stamps were the star – and only embellishment needed!
First I took a 4×6 and 4×3 photo, some cardstock, and my main stamps and made a plan.
Some notes on how-to for my page:
- I stamped (with picked raspberry distress ink + gold paint) multiple hearts and cut them out.
- I used pink ink (Memento Luxe) + gold paint for the small hearts (from Simon stamp set).
- I used Heidi Swapp gold mist flicked onto the background paper.
- I stamped the #1, embossed it with clear powder, and while still hot I coated with distress glitter.
The layout is finished off with black stitching, and some computer printed journaling on thick white cardstock. Simple – and my stamps were my embellishments which I love!
I had a lot of fun being a part of this celebration here at Simon! Please do pop by my blog today for a post featuring more of the new Simon exclusive stamps.
