Stylised Flowers–Beginners Stamping Project

Hi Everyone

Mandy-Jane was chatting with a stamping ‘newbie’ this week who was saying that they were nervous of stamping?  So she was inspired by a recent visit to IndigoBlu and has done this very basic stamping project that does not require nerves of steel…lol


Let’s get together all the ingredients you will need to have a bash at this project.

You will need: -

  • IndigoBlu Stamp – Stylised Flowers – SFL
  • Slim Jim’s or acrylic block to fit stamp
  • Black Archival Ink Pad
  • Distress Inks – Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry
  • Dandie Crafts - Smooth White Card
  • Black Card
  • Blue Core’dinations Card Stock
  • Go Kreate Small Circle Dies

Are you ready?  Here we go!

  • Make a card blank measuring 18.5cm x 15cm.
  • Cut black card to 14.5cm x 18cm and adhere to centre front of card blank.
  • Cut white card to 11cm x 15cm – this is our stamping card.
  • Place stamp onto block and carefully ink whole of image, stamp it in the centre of the white card piece.

  • On a piece of scrap card die cut a 1 3/4” circle (or if you have a punch use that).

  • Using the negative of your die cut and the Distress Inks colour through this like a stencil with an Ink Duster Brush/blending tool or sponges on top of each image until you are happy with the colours.

  • Mount your stamped panel on a piece of blue card cut to 11.5cm x 15.5cm.  Adhere this panel to the centre front of your card.
  • Using the stamp and archival ink open your card and stamp part of the image in the bottom right-hand corner.

  • Use a White Gel pen to highlight details if you wish to.

There you go a very simple project that you can add your own finishing touches to.

We hope you have been inspired.
Thanks for popping
