Scrapbookers Anonymous Mini Challenge......Stamping.

Happy Thursday,I hope your week is going well, this month Scrapbookers Anonymous are celebrating their first anniversary,there have been lots of fun challenges set by some of the DT over the last three weeks and today it is my turn to host a mini challenge. I've decided on stamping as this was how I got into papercrafting many years ago and is still my favourite technique. When I make a card I nearly always have some stamped image on it but I never seem use them on my LO's,so I thought I would challenge you all and myself to do some stamping on your project whether it's a LO,card home decor or a 3D project.
First I stamped and heat embossed a 12x12 piece of white card to make my own background paper,most of my ink pads are dye ink and to use embossing powder you should use a pigment ink so to get around that I inked my stamp first with clear Versamark ink and then a coloured dye ink on top of the Versamark. If you then stamp onto card and immediately cover with clear embossing powder,the powder will cling to the ink,then heat it with your heat tool to set. You will end up with a lovely raised,glossy image.



I wanted some stamped embellishments on my LO so I stamped some bunting/pennants to put along the bottom of the photo,another idea is to stamp some plain paper flowers or stamp and decorate a tag.


I don't know about you but when I cover bare chipboard in paper it takes me forever and then it never looks neat so a really quick way to alter them is to stamp on them.


I used a background stamp to cover my chipboard title,it is so much quicker !!!!!!
I look forward to seeing your stamped projects,if you pop over to Scrapbookers Anonymous you can add your project to the link and check out all the other challenges going on,you still have plenty time.
Everything I've used on this LO is from  Stampin'Up including some of the new products which are available from the 1st October.

Happy Crafting

What fun to participate in. I have my embossing powders and all still; they're colored ones tho.
Like your card how you use that embossed one for background. I would never have thought of that.
