Using Slimline Stamps for Scrapbook Layout Embellishments



using stamps in alternate ways

You wanna know a secret?
I love stamps.
Bet you had no idea.
Of late this girl has become quite the collector.
And I'm here for it.

Slimline Floral Stamp Set

This stamp is gorgeous! The floral is slimline size. That hello is bold and beautiful. It's a wonderful addition to any stamper-paper-crafter collection.

But. Of course. I had to take that Floral Slimline Stamp and instead of a flat image on this Homecoming Layout, I went for the DIY embellishment making instead. Let me show you what I did.

You can see the evidence of the Aged Mahogany on the stamp. That was a great hue to pair with this bold stamp. Stamping on vellum with the Floral Stamp and the Aged Mahogany was a little bit of heaven. The florals are so beautiful. In and of itself this was a fun creative exercise. It would make for a great creative session of stamping vellum and cutting florals to have a stash of beautiful florals on hand for one's next make.

You can see how the vellum stamping and fussy cutting tutorial here:

Wasn't that fun? It's fun to take our non-consumable craft stash and learn how to make consumable stash over and over again. It gives our stamps and even our scissors so much value. Then there is the DIY factor and ability to customize our embellishments. It's win win on so many levels. See? Now that's fun!

The HOCO21 title was made by die cutting the ScrapbookCom Typewriter Alpha Dies and Numbers on the black glitter paper found in the Mixed Metals Paper Pad also from ScrapbookCom. That texture made for a fun contrast to the imperfect title stamp work.

I share in the video how floral die cuts are some of my most favorite embellishments to work with. The layering possibilities with florals creates a garden of design and texture that brings joy in the making. Creating floral embellishments with the Slimline Floral stamp brought some creative therapy with the fussy cutting and figuring out which stamp image would work where.

Make sure to check out the video on the ScrapbookCom channel. Think about how this technique can play out on so many mediums like cards and tags and mini albums. Maybe even some Christmas makes. And be sure to say hi in the comments when you are over there. I would love to say hi back.
