Default TLC528 ~ Cluster Stamping ~ (4/06/15)

Hello everyone!!! I hope you had a wonderful Easter...ours was rainy and overcast but that's ok. We sure do need the rain!!! I hope you are ready to do a little stamping because I have a super fun challenge for you called cluster stamping.

Here are the deets:


1. Select a shape from your dies or punches (circle, square, butterfly, heart, star, diamond, etc).....at least 2 inches in diameter.
2. Create your stencil by cutting a thin piece of paper or a post it note with your die or punch and place over your cardbase.
3. Select several different small stamps or just one...what ever fits your design.
4. Stamp on the cardbase through the stencil to create your cluster. You can use lots of different colors or colors in the same family.
5. Remove stencil and finish your card.


My sample: Happy Birthday




Remember to add TLC528 to the keywords when uploading (no spaces)

You can find the TLC528 gallery here.


Happy Stamping!!!"

LOVED your technique, Joan....and am sure to use it again. Makes for a quick and easy card, if one chooses images that don't need much, if any, coloring. Thanks.

ROUTE 66 BIRTHDAY

Heart TLC528 Flowery Thank You

Had fun making a masking stencil with my SU 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 circle punches, off center. Used SU's Day of Gratitude, did some sponging, and added flowery washi tapes. Here's Flowery Thank You

Smile TLC528 African Lion

I used the off center circle from my original masking for my frame- and 3 SU stamp sets- Zoo Review (lion), Nature's Perfection (flowers), and Day of Gratitude (frame). Went with some washi tapes, and a dc flower. Have been watching a lot of African wildlife programs lately Here's African Lion

What a fun technique! I loved it! I stamped with Twinkling H20s on my card so it has some good shimmer to it in the light!
