It's a challenge to put your favorite Studio Calico stamp to work anywhere! Check out how two card-makers used their favorite stamps to make some beautiful projects, then try their techniques for yourself!
Agnieszka Malyszek: Stamps and ink are my favorite embellishments in paper crafting! There is nothing better than a great versatile stamp set that can be used in many ways and for many different kind of projects. To celebrate today's National Scrapbooking Day I decided to create something different than a card. It’s not a scrapbooking layout but my today’s project is definitely bigger compared to what I used to work with. I created a stamped poster for my daughter’s bedroom. First I printed out my sentence directly onto white cardstock and then I created a floral background using stamps from the Mother’s Day stamp set.
Lea Lawson: I've been dying to ink up this new Mother's Day stamp set that I ordered from Studio Calico this month, and I knew this challenge would be the perfect time! I've created a super sweet card for mom using one of the whimsical sentiments & a stem of flowers from the set. I've combined them with a more muted & trendy color combination of greys, blues & green. To keep it feminine, I predominately used a floral patterned paper from the Lisse Street card kit, and added some scalloped edges with trim & a doily.
