Hi there! We have six great cards to share with you today using the VW Beetle Photo Stamp
Our first card was created by Teresa Abajo
1. Stamp the VW Beetle Photo Stamp using Archival Jet Black ink.
2. Stamp the script from the Champs Elysee Stamp set in blue ink, and the cancellation stamp from the Correspondence set in red ink over the image.
3. Spray the image with Distress Spray Stain Antique Linen and allow to dry. Layer this onto some patterned paper from the inside of an envelope, then onto a kraft card.
4. Finish the card off with some twine and a word from the Everyday Life stamp set.
Here are two cards by Belinda Spencer
1. Apply the Brushed Stars Background Stamp to a piece of smooth white cardstock cut to size using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink. Use an ink blending tool to apply Hickory Smoke Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the edges. Stick down on a kraft cardstock base.
2. Stamp the VW Beetle stamp onto another piece of smooth white cardstock cut to size using the Jet Black ink. Apply Fossilized Amber and Hickory Smoke inks to the background. Layer on top of a piece of yellow cardstock cut to size. Stick down on the card front.
3. Stamp the VW again on another piece of white cardstock using the Jet Black ink. Squish the Fossilized Amber ink onto an acrylic stamping block, add a little water and paint on the VW Beetle image using a soft, wet paintbrush.
4. Create a racing stripe using white cardstock and add stripes to it using textas. Stick down on the VW. Apply the Bingo Numbers to a scrap of white cardstock using the Jet Black ink. Choose a number, cut out and add on top of the racing stripe on the VW.
For this next card, Belinda has created an open hood for the front of the car:
1. Apply Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink to the VW Beetle stamp and stamp on a piece of smooth white cardstock cut to size. Squish Hickory Smoke, Lucky Clover and Peacock Feathers Tim Holtz Distress Inks onto an acrylic stamping block or heat resistant craft sheet. Add some water to each colour and apply a wash of colour to the stamped image using a soft, wet paintbrush. Allow to dry.
2. Stamp the VW Beetle again on smooth white cardstock using Hero Arts Neon Purple ink. Squish Wilted Violet Distress Ink onto the clean acrylic block and paint this colour onto the purple stamped VW. Allow to dry or dry with a heat gun. Cut the bonnet/boot open with a craft knife so that it can be lifted. Fussy cut this VW and glue down on top of the first image making sure that the bonnet can still be opened. Create some racing stripes for the bonnet from white cardstock and add to the VW.
3. Stamp the VW for a third time using the Jet Black ink. Fussy cut the bumper, headlights and windscreen/roof section. Glue down on top of the purple bug.
4. Stamp the number plate of the bug again using the Neon Purple ink. Fussy cut and glue onto the bumper.
5. Use the Neon Purple ink to stamp the 'hi' from the Simply Circles Rubber Stamp Set on the white cardstock. Cut out and stick down under the bonnet.
6. Apply the Woodgrain Background Stamp to another piece of smooth white cardstock cut to size using Watering Can Archival Ink. Use an ink blending tool to apply Hickory Smoke Distress Ink around the edges. Stick down on top of a kraft cardstock card base. Add the VW Beetle image on top.
7. Using Aquamarine Archival Ink, stamp the 'Hello' from the Brushed Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set on to a scrap of smooth white cardstock. Fussy cut and stick down on the card front.
