Hi Daisy fans! Suzanna here today to share with you a number of ways to use your stamps that come with the Cocoa Daisy kits! There are a great variety of projects this month and there is something to tickle the fancy of all kinds of crafters. Did you know that you can subscribe to just the scrapbook and DITL stamps? YES!! Such a great option!
Kylie starts us with two postcards that she created using the stamps from the main Memory keeping (scrapbook) kit. I love how she used the window as a background for the stamped owl perched on the branch.
Marie created a lovely pocket page using stamps and card from the DITL kit. The great thing about stamps is that if you are afraid to stamp directly onto your project, you can always stamp on cardstock and cut the image out to be glued onto your project. If the homemade “die cut” doesn’t look right, just set it aside. Marie says “the page is about some last minute shopping for the start of the school year. The white Alphabet is from last month.”
Another great use for your stamps is to decorate a tag. Moon uses the tag that she stamped in her planner that she is going to use as an art journal but this same stamped tag could be used in a pocket page, your planner or a scrapbook page. It would even make a great bookmark, don’t you think? Such a simple process yet so effective! Moon even shared the step by step photo sequence of how her tag came together!
I used a stamp from the main kit on this 8.5×11 layout. I was inspired by the handwriting on the background of the leaf patterned paper that is an exclusive in the kits this month. I wanted to mimic that look and used the cat’s eye stamp that comes with the kit and stamped it multiple times thus resulting in an ombre type effect of the fading sentiment “Dear fall, I love you”.
In addition to stamping, I had fun using a subscriber exclusive cut file as a stencil on my page. I used that same stencil as elements on the layout I shared earlier in the week, the sketch inspired layout. You can see how this layout came together in this process video, should you be interested.
I hope you are inspired to try new or different things with your stamps! We love to see your creations too! Be proud, share your work on our Facebook pages or tag us in Instagram.
Thanks for stopping in today and happy stamping y’all!
