A “How To” Post

You asked for it on Facebook…so here you go!

The “how to” I have for you today is about this adorable scrapbook page that Kirsten made:

The polka dots were made using stamps and paints by Claudine Hellmuth (she also used some black VersaFine ink on the dots too).  All you’ll need are the stamp sets you’re going to use (you really could use any stamp or stamp set to create a cool background for a scrapbook page), paints, paint brushes, ink if you choose to use it, and all of your other scrapping items for that page.  So here goes:

Step One: Grab all of your scrapping stuff and get ready to paint!

Step Two: Apply a light layer of paint the the foam stamp.  You can also paint on clear stamps and rubber stamps.

Step Three: Stamp your image.

Step Four: Apply more paint and stamp the image again.  Repeat as many times as you need to complete the image.  On Kirsten’s scrapbook page, she switched colors and then stamped again.

Step Five: Grab the clear stamp (Kirsten used the Claudine Hellmuth stamps that go together) and ink up the stamp with black ink.  She’s using VersaFine.

Step Six: Stamp the image over the image you stamped using paint.

Step Seven: Ta Da!  You’ve created a funky border down the bottom (or side, or top) of your scrapbook page!

It’s easy as that!  Make sure you check out the Claudine Hellmuth stamps and paints.  They really are an easy way to add a lot to your artsy craftsy project!

AND!  There are still seats available for Claudine Hellmuth’s ScrapFest 2011 Workshop!  Check it out!

I found this idea in the book  A Card a Day by PaperCrafts Magazine and knew right away which stamps I would use to create my own version of this Thinking of You card.

I used a a floral cling stamp from Hero Arts and inked it with Denim dabber paint from Ranger rather than an ink pad to make it really stand out on the white cardstock.   My favorite part of the card was the wide ribbon wrapped around the stamped flowers but I decided to wrap a skinnier ribbon around three times to give a similar look.  My sentiment is a clear stamp from Hero and it’s stamped on the card rather than on the flowers, and once again, I used dabber paint from Ranger, Silver really pops on the navy cardstock.  Try painting on your stamps with the Dabber Paints from Ranger to get a rich color on your projects.
