I bought a stamp last year to use for Christmas, but could never come up with a design that I liked. I was wondering if anyone here has used it and, if so, if you would be willing to share your card? Here's a link to the stamp:
I don't have this stamp. It is gorgeous though. You aren't the only one with blocks when you get a stamp purchase home. I had my Kinkade stamps for years before I knew what I wanted to do with them. I am thinking your stamp would look awesome embossed in a metallic or a dark color like navy or burgundy. Another thing I am thinking of is you could highlight small portions of the stamp with a gel pen or a touch of color. Since it is a circle punches, or dies could be used to make mats around it also. Not sure if I helped. Have fun!
Location: Currently upstate New York - it could change...
I don't have this stamp, either, but I think it's really pretty! It's rather large, too, so you wouldn't need much to make it fabulous. I found a few cards in my favorites gallery that would showcase this stamp very well. HERE is one that I especially liked... You could check out the sketch challenge gallery for a sketch that highlighted a single, larger image.
Within you there is a solitude and peace to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself... I'm blogging again...
What a wonderful stamp. I do not have it but can see using a rich navy blue cardstock and silver embossing for the image. The card would be in navy blue, layered with silver then your image cut out to appear like an ornament.
How about cutting it out as a circle and making it the center of a rosette badge? Use a pleated paper underneath and have some streamers of paper or ribbon from the bottom and make it the centerpiece of you card? I like that stamp a lot!HTH!
Thanks for all the great suggestions! The only thing that I had settled on was using a dark color for the stamp itself, so you've all given me some ideas to take that further.
Sue, that card is a great example of making a round stamp the centerpiece. I also hadn't thought about making it an ornament or rosette center, so I've got some fun things to try today.
