QUICK MULTI STAMPING WITH YOUR STAMPS!

Last post I showed you a card using the Nailed It set and I used the stamps to create a background on your card.  You can go back to the last post to see that if you like but here is the card again.

Now when creating this card I didn’t stamp each tool individually.  I couldn’t get them so evenly spaced!  I thought I would share with you today how I did it quickly and easily.

Rather than ink and stamp each one, add your stamps to one large block and then you can stamp that multiple times over your card.   See below what I mean.

These all fit on the clear block ‘E’.  You can try this with any stampset and make life so much easier on yourself. 🙂

While I had these assembled on the block I created this card.

The stamps were inked in Versarmark and then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder on to black card.  Don’t forget to wipe over with your embossing buddy.  While I did do that I still picked up a few stray specks of the embossing but it doesn’t matter right. 🙂

Some Linen Thread was wrapped around the card several times and then I added some strips of the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper to the back of the black card. Before adhering it to the Delightful Dijon base card stamp your screws, bolt and nails with Delightful Dijon ink.  For this I also added all those little stamps to one block to stamp.  The sentiment from the Confetti Celebration stamp set is stamped in Memento black. 

The layout of this card was from Freshly Made Sketches #278.

I have just created a little visual for you which I will add to Pinterest.

Thanks for stopping by,

TOOLS AND URBAN UNDERGROUND!

I started sharing some cards with the Nailed It set a few weeks ago and then got in to Sale-A-Bration so I thought it was time to revisit this set again.  I have a couple of cards for you and some tricks.

This card was CASED from Pinterest.  It really is a simple card but you don’t need complicated right and the boys usually don’t care anyway. 😉

The tools were stamped onto the Smoky Slate Background with Smoky Slate ink.  Quite evenly mind you.  I will share a trick to that in the next  post.

I cut a strip of the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper and cut a banner with scissors.  This piece is too wide to fit in the Banner Triple Punch. I wrapped around some Black Baker’s Twine. (You can have bows on boy’s cards!). Then punch the black card with the Best Badge Punch.  The No. 1 is stamped in black ink on to white card and punched out.  This is from the set ‘Badges and Banners’. They were raised up with Dimensionals.  To finish I added a star from the Urban Underground Embellishments Pack.

Stay tuned for the next post with this cool set and a tip for you.

NAILED IT WITH URBAN UNDERGROUND!

I have a class on this weekend with the Nailed It Bundle.  They make some great masculine cards.  I thought I would show you one of the cards that we will be making.

The base card is Delightful Dijon.  Funny, this colour has been around for nearly 2 years and all of a sudden I have been using so much of it.  There is only a couple of months left with this colour.

On a white card mat I added 2 different strips from the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is from the set Confetti Celebration.

I stamped the 3 tools from the Nailed It set on to Thick Whisper White using the Black StazOn.  They were then coloured with the inkpads and Aquapainter.  These were raised up off the card with Dimensionals.  Finish the card off with the Urban Underground Embellishments. (Bling for Blokes!!). 🙂

I will show you some other cards with this bundle over the next couple of days.
