Hi there! It’s Rachel Greig here today, sharing a wedding card created with the Hearts Border Stamp and Wedding Sentiments Stamp. I wanted to create a soft watercolour resist effect over the hearts and I think it’s a fun technique to use with these stamps!

While I had the Border Stamps out, I made a quick card using the Leaves Border Stamp:
This card took only a couple of minutes. I stamped the quote from the Friendship Flowers Stamp Set in the centre of a 15cm x 15cm (6”x6”) card using Archival Jet Black ink. Then stamped the Leaves Border either side using Archival Olive ink pad. Super quick but looks great!

Then I stamped the Flower Bed Border Stamp in my traveler’s notebook:
I used it to create a border down the right side of a page. I stamped it with Archival Jet Black ink, then coloured with pencils. I used these woodless pencils. They look vibrant, but create soft tones when colouring. It was easy to do and really adds a nice border into your journals.

I hope you‘ve enjoyed these ideas! The Border Stamps are almost 12” in length, so they can be used for scrapbook pages and large journals, along with smaller projects like these ones!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
