Hi stampers! Today we are sharing projects created with the Gardening Vol 1 Rubber Stamp Set!
Belinda Spencer has created 4 cards with a stunning watercolour effect:
1. Stamp the plant pot stamp onto the smooth side of some watercolour paper using Monarch Orange Ranger Archival Ink.
2. Stamp the pot again onto some scrap printer paper (or any thin paper). Create a mask with this piece by cutting away the ?back? section of the pot. Use some washi tape to attach the mask over the pot on the watercolour paper.
3. Apply Leaf Green Ranger Archival Ink to the plant stamp and Potting Soil ink to the soil section of the stamp. Stamp onto the watercolour piece with the mask attached. Remove the mask and you have potted the plant. It might take a couple of attempts before you get the plant looking right in the pot so maybe try it out on scrap paper first so you don?t waste any watercolour paper.
4. Paint the pot plant using Lyra Aquacolour Crayons (watercolour paints or water soluble pencils would work too). Allow some of the colour to wash over the background too. Flick some of the colour over the top to create some splats of colour.
5. Tear the edges and ink with Antique Linen Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
6. Apply the Mesh Background Stamp onto another piece of watercolour paper using Tree Branch Ranger Archival Ink. Wash some watercolour over this piece too. Once dry, tear the edges and ink with Antique Linen. Layer the pot plant piece over the top.
7. Apply the Torn Text Background Stamp onto a third piece of watercolour paper using Tree Branch Ranger Archival Ink. Use watercolours to add highlights and shadows to the individual pieces of torn paper. Distress the edges and ink with Antique Linen. Layer the other two pieces on top. Add to a kraft cardstock base.
8. Lastly, apply the sentiment onto a piece of smooth white cardstock using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink. Cut out, distress the edges and ink with Antique Linen. Add to the card using 3D foam.
Here are three more projects by Belinda created with this same stamp set.
Godelieve Tijskens has created 3 fun cards with the Gardening Vol 1 Rubber Stamp Set:
1. Create a grid by scoring the paper on a Scor-Pal. Or draw lines using a ruler and pen if you don't own a Scor-Pal
2. Choose several Distress inkpads to stamp the tiny flowers inside the scored squares
3. Ink the edges with black ink
4. Stamp the saying and one more flower on a strip of paper using black ink
5. Attach the strip to the stamped panel, using a Tiny Attacher and glue the panel onto a folded card
Here's a close up so you can see the score lines which have formed a grid pattern:
Here's a fun ATC:
1. Stamp the plant at the bottom of the ATC using Archival inks Olive and Potting soil
2. Stamp a bunch of flowers with Distress Ink Victorian Velvet
3. Watercolour the leaves with Distress Ink Peeled Paint, and the background with Weathered Wood.
4. Add splatters using Distress Ink Hickory Smoke with a really wet brush
5. Adhere an image from the Montage sheet Love Letters to the ATC
6. Ink the edges with Archival Ink Watering Can
7. Stamp the words with black ink on a watercoloured strip and glue it onto the ATC.
One more card created by Godelieve:
1. Stamp the flowerpot several times using Archival Ink Orange Blossom. Stamp the tiny flower on one of them.
2. Cut the pots out and make a slit in each pot to stack them. Tape the pile together at the back to keep them in place.
3. Colour the pots using Distress Ink Frayed Burlap and an ink blending tool
4. Stamp soil and tools using Archival Ink Potting soil. Cut the tools out.
5. Watercolour a background using Distress inks Broken China, Peeled Paint and Frayed Burlap.
6. Use the Stone Background stamp and Distress Inks to add texture to the background
7. Stamp the words with Archival Ink Potting Soil
8. Glue the pots and tools in place
9. Choose a "gardener" from the Photobooth sheet and glue the image in place
10. Attach to a white folded card.
Lastly, here's a long skinny card (or bookmark!) by Rachel Greig:
1. Stamp the shovel using Watering Can Archival Ink and the rake using Potting Soil Archival Ink Pad. Trim around both images.
2. Adhere rake and shovel to green cardstock. Stamp the dirt seedling upside down on the bottom of green cardstock so you only get the dirt. Sponge Potting Soil Archival ink around the edges of green cardstock.
3. Stamp the 'Gardeners know all the dirt' quote on cream cardstock with Watering Can Archival Ink Pad and trim around each word. Adhere over shovel and rake using 3D foam adhesive.
4. Adhere stamped panel to folded kraft card. Ink edges with Potting Soil Archival Ink Pad.
