Less Than $1.50 !!!

Stamp Art is featuring two clear stamps that offer up an array of possibilities... Stamping, coloring, layering, popping up, multiple stamping, paper piecing.... You name it! And all for

$ 1.49 !!!

That's right! Only $1.49 for each of these stamps.

Let you imagination run wild with all the wonderful cards or layouts you could create with these two simple stamps.

This card was created using different colored inks with the flower stamp, stamped repeatedly on ivory cardstock and then cut out once and popped up.

A piece of silk ribbon matching the blue cardstock was added along with a happy birthday sentiment and some flower gemstones.

This pretty pink card was made with the tree stamp. It was stamped in olive and brown inks onto white cardstock.. Some designer paper was added as a background and the blossoms on the tree were flocked with pink flock.

Strips of holographic line stickers were added in the corner.

Here is a closeup of the flocked blossoms.
You could use flock, small round stickers, or simple color them in with pencil crayons or markers.

Silouhette Stamps and Inks

This week we are featuring the "STAMP OF THE MONTH". This month it is a silouhette stamp from Magenta. The card done here has the stamp of the month stamped in black archival ink on white glossy paper. The inks used to do the background are Alcohol inks from Tim Holtz in Wild Plum and Stream. Remember to use black archival inks for your main image when using Alcohol inks!!!

A butterfly sticker added to a piece of clear acetate was added with the help of a glue dot.

What a simple yet effective way to use your silouhette stamps and alcohol inks. Just think of the color variations you can achieve!!

The following cards use silouhette stamps as well with distress inks. The sample here uses Spiced Marmalade and Broken China applied with foam applicators.

Here is another sample with about 4 different distress inks used to achieve sky and ground colors ...

We all lead busy lives and when it comes to making a card quickly but effectively, stickers are the way to go.

Penny Black has two new sticker lines. Pond-side Celebration and So Cute!

Pick your card stock, add some designer paper, maybe some texture with a Cuttle Bug embossing folder and a sentiment and you can have a card done in a matter of minutes.

This is a great way to make a number of cards for yourself to have on hand when you need one.

One sheet of stickers could potentially give you 10 cards. It's a great value..

Check out Stamp Art's supply of stickers. You won't be sorry.
