Cardmaking Charlene Stamps Inspiration from the Design Team Stamping

Hand Stamped Printed Paper

May 27, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and today I am popping in and sharing a few cards I created using hand stamped printed paper I created using Ilse and Charlene’s Stamps and Stencils. I love how you can created exactly the ‘printed’ paper you need using simply papers and monochromatic color scheme.

Step One: Using a diagonal line, hand stamp a fauna stamp from the Spring Fling stamp set onto Watercolor paper using colored ink. I used Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide.

Step Two: Finish stamping the fauna in a diagonal pattern, alternating the direction of the stamp with each line.

Step Three: Spray the images with water, and set with a heat gun.

Step Four: Blend a lighter shade of ink through the Dot Dot Dot stencil and blend extra ink around the edges of the watercolor paper. I used Shabby Shutter Distress Oxide.

Step Five: Repeat step one using three of the flower stamps from the Spring Fling stamp set in a new shade of ink. I used Speckled Egg Distress Oxide.

Step Six: Repeat step two, finishing the diagonal stamping.

Step Seven: Repeat step three, spraying the ink with water. This one did not bleed as much as the others.

Step Eight: Repeat step four, blending ink through the Waves stencil and around the edges. I used Speckled Egg Distress Oxide for the background as well as the stamping.

Step Nine: Repeat step one using the Poppy Dream stamp set. I used Barn Doors Distress Oxide.

Step Ten: Repeat step two, and finish the stamping. Can you tell which row I messed up on?

Step Eleven: Repeat step three, spraying the ink with water.

Step Twelve: Repeat step four, blending a lighter ink through the Make Your Mark stencil. I used Abandon Coral Distress Oxide.

Step Thirteen: Repeat step one using a different stamp from the Poppy Dream stamp set. I used Crackling Fire Distress Oxide.

Step Fourteen: Repeat step two, and finish the stamping.

Step Fifteen: Repeat step three, spraying the ink with water. I really love how this one bleed.

Step Sixteen: Repeat step four, blending a lighter ink through the Make Your Mark stencil. I used Dried Marigold Distress Oxide.

Step Seventeen: Repeat step one using the Journaling Elements stamp set. I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide.

Step Eighteen: Repeat step two, and finish the stamping. On this printed paper, I added a second row using one of the sentiments from the stamp set.

Step Nineteen: On this printed paper, I added a second row using one of the sentiments from the stamp set.

Step Twenty: Repeat step three, spraying the ink with water.

Step Twenty One: Repeat step four, blending a lighter ink through the hearts on the Make Your Mark stencil. I used Spun Sugar Distress Oxide for an almost water mark look.

Step Twenty Two: Repeat step one using the Journaling Elements stamp set and the oversized sentiment ‘perfect’. I used Dusty Concord Distress Oxide. I added a second row of stamping using Milled Lavender and the paint brush strip stamp.

Step Twenty Three: For this printed paper, I added a third layer of stamping using the dash stamp set in Seedless Preservers Distress Oxide.

Step Twenty Four: Repeat step three, spraying the ink with water.

Step Twenty Five: Repeat step four, blending a lighter ink through the dash marks on the Make Your Mark stencil. I used Milled Lavender Distress Oxide again, loving how it blended into the stamped image of that same color.

Step Twenty Six: Die cut all six of the ‘printed’ papers using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.

Step Twenty Seven: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the ‘printed’ papers onto A2 card frames.

Step Twenty Eight: Die cut black and white sentiments for the hand stamp ‘printed’ papers. I used a collection of planner die sets to create my sentiment die cuts. They are from the Planner Essentials 1, Planner Essentials 2, Planner Essentials 4, Planner Essentials 7, Planner Labels, and Retro Label Sayings stamp set. Adhere the sentiments to each of the cards.
