Hey friends! It’s EK and I am popping in today to show you how easily you can manipulate your favorite stamps to use all year long. Every since the Halloween Party Stamp set was released by designer Charlene, I have been absolutely in love with the kitty stamp. It is hands down one of the cutest cats around. However, his little bat wings make him limited in how often you can use him. However, I am sharing today, that with a little creative stamping you can use this cutie all year long!
Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Using a stamping platform add you cat stamp from Halloween Party and ink it up. Then before stamping, wipe the ink from the kitty’s wings. You can use any type of ink for this stamping technique. I used Fadeout ink so I could do a little no line coloring.
Step Two: Using alcohol ink color the image in. I used copic markers.
It is hard to believe that this sweet little image once had little bat wings set on the body.
Step Three: Using the Fitted Rounded Rectangle die set, die cut out the stamped image. Using two of the dies from the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set, die cut a board that is about the size of the card frame.
Step Four: Using the Fitted Rounded Rectangle die set, die cut a piece of printed paper the size of the opening in the die cut boarder.
Step Five: Using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add the die cut boarder to an A2 Card frame. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add the printed paper and the stamped image, making both of center.
Step Six: Stamp a sentiment from the Journaling Elements stamp set in black ink.
I hope you find it helpful to see how to manipulate your stamps to use them in new and interesting ways. It is super easy and gives all your stamps a new and versatile way of using them.
