Hello fellow scrappers! Let me just say that although I have been scrappin’ for about ten years now and have no idea how many albums I have filled, blogging for me is quite new. I love to share my pages, but really was only doing it among a little core group of scrappers that met monthly. A move to the North Country in NY was difficult as I had to leave all my scrappin’ buddies behind. Luckily through Sara Zenger (who is also a contributing artist for this blog), I was introduced to the on-line variety of scrap buddies and I can enjoy seeing new pages, new ideas, and new products ! I find myself blogging quite regularly, so if you want to visit my blog:
I’d love it even more if I had followers…but that is up to you!!
Stamp Versatility by Mitra
I’d like to share some ideas around stamping with you. I bought this stamp (it happens to be a stamp from Close to My Heart) a while back. It was an impulse purchase meaning that I stared at it in the catalog for months and then randomly ordered it. It didn’t fit with “sensible” and being able to use it over and over. As usual, I was wrong. I use it all the time!
In the “Rainbow over Potsdam” page I use the stamp in a traditional sense with all the right colors. Of course it was a rainbow page…so made a lot of sense!
In the “Bucket Filler” page I didn’t want all the extra color and was trying to pull out the blue on his award. I liked the rainbow in various shades of blue! Of course the puffy clouds I found (Jolees) were also fun.
I used it again in the “Dream” page using the same color of stamps to also ink up the letters.
My newest project using this rainbow stamp was the green box I made up to celebrate St. Patty’s Day.
I didn’t have anything to decorate with for that holiday and my friend found this box on sale & shared. It’s greenness spoke to me! And I thought it needed a rainbow with lots of rainbow colored flowers. The green knitted piece is from Purple Pumpkin who routinely has some really cool stuff…they can be found at: http://purplepumpkincrafts.blogspot.com/.
Thank you so much for sharing your stamping idea and projects with us, Mitra!!
