Hello, Daisies! This is Patricia to share with you lots of stamping ideas from what the team has made with the March “Grey Street” kits.
First, we have Suz Mannecke and what she has to say about her projects:
“You Are Brilliant!” This card uses both the A & B sides of the “Bedrock” paper. I painted October Afternoon Red Wagon SprINKler over the Daily Flash alphas because I felt the sentiment needed more pop from the bold graphic lines of the zigzag patterned paper.
On this card I stamped the thumbs up stamp from the Main Kit; Grey street and then painted on October Afternoon’s Red Wagon SprINKler to add a little pop to the design and the sentiment.
I used a masking technique using washi tape to create this ombre effect to the exclusive fish bone stamp included in the stamp sub. I also used the fish bone stamp on this DITL card I created from the Wanderlust patterned paper in the main kit, Grey Street.
And finally, here I used a sentiment from the October Afternoon Catch Phrase roller stamp included in the main to subtly stamp right onto my background patterned paper
I love the techniques and the effects Suz created with these stamps.
Next, is Lisa Saunders:
I used parts of the fishbone stamp across my title.
I inked up the alphas from the Main Kit with the Prima Chalk Inks and then stamped them a little.
I love how Lisa made these alphas unique and to coordinate with her background. Such an awesome stamp.
And here is what Mandy Kay Starner has to share:
I used quite a few stamps on this layout, my favorite being the layered stamps on the left next to the title.
You will almost miss the stamps Mandy Kay used, she used them so well, that they look like they are part of the papers and die cuts.
And here is that amazing fishbone stamp again used by Denise Morrison. She really made that background pop. She also used some of Martha Bonneau’s new and FREE printables for this card.
And last, I have some to share as well.
That little October Afternoon stamp that came with the Day In the Life kit can go a long way. Don’t forget to use it on your cards. For this card, I stamped once, but a little bit of an angle…adds interest and fun.
On these two cards, I stamped randomly. Love that look.
And for this last card, I used the main kit stamp and the October Afternoon stamp. For all of my cards I used Hero Arts Soft Granite.
For my Project Life, I love to add stamping. Gives a little more detail, adds to the story, and easy to add. I used both the October Afternoon and main kit stamp set.
And I used the October Afternoon and main stamp set again throughout this side of my spread. I also stamp on my photos. I print my photos on matte paper, so I don’t worry about the type of ink.
For this layout, the thumbs up stamp got used a lot. And it is just a little bit smaller than my Fiskars 1″ circle punch which leaves a nice border around it. I pop dotted those to add around this “healthy” layout. And used the “Good Day” as part of the title.
For this clean and simple layout, I inked only the “Good”, and stamped, cleaned it well, then inked only the “Day” and stamped to add to the theme and design.
Hope you snagged these March kits. The stamps are very usable as you can see with so many creative ways to use it. I love that they can be used in an artsy and in a clean and simple way.
