HELLO EVERYONE***

Hi everyone! Stamp Art begins their blog today***


STAMP ART is a wonderful store in London, Ontario Canada that houses one of the biggest assortment of stamps that I have seen in this area. Nancy and Arn, the owners, have stamps from Penny Black, Northwoods, Serendipity, Stampscapes, Stamp Barn, Verses, Hero Arts, American Art Stamp, Magenta, Printworks, Impression Obsession, Inkadinkado and many more. They also sell paper, inks of every description, stickers, and embellishments.

I hope that you find this site interesting and inspiring.






Today we wanted to show you a few cards embellished with stickers. This card was made with a stamp from Northwoods, stamped in black Versafine ink and colored with Tombow markers and a Dove blender. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. Snowwriter was used to cover the roofs of the birdhouses with glitter added while still wet.

It is hard to see in this photo but an outer layer of acetate was used over the main card. A sticker from Starforms was used as an embellishment at the bottom of the acetate. It adds just the right touch of glitz without overwhelming the card.







This card was made with stickers from Peel Off's called "Leaves".. They were placed onto vellum, cut out and arranged to form a poinsettia..


Some of the stickers were colored with sharpie pens so that a few of the leaves remained gold and some are a copper color. They were glued on a square of blue cardstock and then layered to a cream colored cardstock and then to gold shimmer cardstock. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and the ribbon is Maru ribbon from Magenta.






A tree from Stampendous was stamped onto white cardstock and then layered onto silver paper then pink and then blue linen.

The sentiment down the side is from Impression Obsession stamped and embossed in silver tinsel embossing powder.

The dot sparklers in the corners are from Stampendous and have been colored with permanent pens to change their color. You will notice that there is also one in the middle of snowflake at the side of the card. The little circles on the tree as well as the star have been highlighted with a silver pen but you could easily have added dot sparklers as well colored with pens...

You can color these stickers with permanent pens, glaze pens or sharpies to change the color to match your cardstock or whatever color scheme you are trying to achieve.

Welcome to the blogging world and congrats! Stamp Art is on my list as one of my favourite "road trip destinations". In fact, we have a road trip planned for tomorrow to Stamp Art and although it takes about 1-1/2 hrs to get there, it is sooooo worth it!

Congrats on joining the blogging world! I have a great time. It is easy to share with friends and family that you don't see very often and isn't as time consuming as facebook! Love the artwork.
