Hi stampers! Our Gardening Vol 2 Rubber Stamp Set includes lots of iconic garden images . . . from the picket fence to the watering can and gloves! There are so many ways these stamps can be mixed together to create wonderful projects! Let's take a look at what our artists have created.
Godelieve has created two different cards, the first one using the picket fence, pot plant and quote:
1. Apply a thin coat of gesso to a watercolour card, using an old credit card. Let it dry.
2. Colour the background with Distress Stain Seedless Preservers and Victorian Velvet, and the green inks on the bottom of the card. Let the ink dry.
3. Use a stencil and a baby wipe to remove some of the purple ink
4. Stamp the fence onto kraft cardstock using black ink. Cut out using a craft knife
5. Stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock using black ink, cut apart, ink the edges
6. Ink up the flower stamp using Archival inks Orange Blossom, Olive and Rose Madder. Stamp it twice. Watercolour the pots with Distress Ink Rusty Hinge. Cut out
7. Glue everything in place
8. Round the corners
This next card shows a great way of using the watering can with the little flowers!
1. Use watercolour paper for this 1-layer card
2. Stamp the watering can and words, using Archival Ink Watering Can (of course!)
3. Stamp a flower garden, using the small flowers from this set with Archival Inks Vermillion, Aquamarine and Fern Green
4. Press the Distress Ink onto a clear stamping block to use it as a palette
5. Use a wide brush to apply clear water to the background, so the Distress Ink will spread very easy. On this card the sky was done with Peacock Feathers, the grass with Mowed Lawn. Remember the the colours will look much softer once they are dry
6. Distress Ink Hickory Smoke was used to colour the watering can
7. Let the ink dry completely before adding the waterdrops using a Distress Marker Hickory Smoke
8. Round the corners for a softer look
Belinda Spencer has two fabulous cards to share:
1. Apply Aquamarine Ranger Archival Ink to approximately three quarters of the Scratches Background Stamp and Leaf Green to the remainder. Stamp on a piece of smooth white cardstock cut to size.
2. Using an ink blending tool, add sky and grass to the background with blue and green inks. In the example the following colours have been used: Crushed Olive, Mermaid Lagoon, Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Distress the edges and ink again. Stick this piece down onto a kraft cardstock base.
3. Apply the picket fence stamp from the set onto a piece of smooth white cardstock using Watering Can Ranger Archival Ink. Rub in Antique Linen Tim Holtz Distress Ink with an ink blending tool. Fussy cut the fence and add to the card front using 3D foam.
4. Add Archival Inks to the pot plant and flower stamps and stamp onto cardstock. Fussy cut and add to the card front with 3D foam.
5. Stamp the sentiment onto card stock with Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink, cut out, distress and ink the edges. Add to the card front with 3D foam.
Here is another card using the watering stamp and painted with watercolours.
One last card by Rachel Greig using the watering can as a flower pot!
1. Stamp watering can onto cream cardstock using Watering Can Archival Ink. Mask the watering can and stamp the single flowers over the can using Chrome Yellow and Red Geranium Ink Pads.
2. Using a Hickory Smoke Distress Marker, lightly draw around the base of the watering can, making it look like it's sitting on something. Lightly water colour inside the watering can using the same pen with an aquash brush.
3. Sponge around the cardstock using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Mount onto black cardstock. Wrap flat linen ribbon around the base and tie at the front. Frey the edges of the ribbon.
4. Stamp the sentiment onto cream cardstock and sponge around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Mount onto black cardstock.
5. Stamp the picket fence along the bottom of a folded yellow card using Sepia Archival Ink pad. Adhere the stamped images to the card using 3D foam adhesive.
