With Love die and True Friends stamp by Stamps By Me

Good morning everyone

Another weekend is upon us. What do you have planned?

Today's blog showcases the beautiful dies and stamps from Stamps By Me

These samples use the following :
True Friends
With Love die

Also used:
Distress Oxides : Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, Worn Lipstick
Distress ink : Squeezed Lemonade

  • Cut a mat of black card slightly smaller than your card blank and a mat of white card slightly smaller than this 
  • Set the black mat to one side 
  • Place some masking tape across where the stem of your stamped flower will be (wide enough for the sentiment die to fit in to)
  • Ink up the solid stamp with the DO and stamp so the image goes across the masking tape
  • Stamp the image again coming down from the top left of the card
  • Remove masking tape and adhere to black card mat and then onto card blank 
  • Cut the With Love die on black card and adhere the sentiment across the flower stem, in the masked off panel 

  • For this sample I cut a square of black card and slightly smaller square of white card 
  • I stamped a moon stamp I have, in black onyx versafine ink then masked it off.
  • I used Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade to blend a background
  • Using black onyx versafine I stamped the solid True Friends stamp,  just off the edge of the card
  • The Amazing sentiment was also stamped in black versafine. Using a paint brush, I created moonlight rays by drawing lines with the brush dipped in water, then blotting the ink off with a paper towel.  I repeated this technique until I was happy with the density of the rays
  • I adhered this to the black card and then onto the card blank with wet glue
  • To complete I added a few clear gems 

Very simple but beautiful designs using these beautiful products. 

Thankyou for stopping by and hope to see you back here soon
