Personalised papercraft projects with Stitched Alphabet Stamp Set

August 12, 2017

So here I have a second composition starting from the previous idea here.   This time I made a notebook -planner cover  but when you add a  personalised element  such as  stamped names or dates the possibilities  for your papercraft  projects  are endless.  I always keep in my stash alphabets and numbers dies and stamps.

I used Stitched Alphabet Stamp Set from the last release by Simon Says Stamp called  "Back to School - Encouraging words" and I paired it with  More Spring Flowers Stamp set because its images also have stitches over  the edges but due to the technique applied  to colour the images in this post  you can't see the stitches on the flowers.  You will see them in my next post however...

I'm  loving the stamping possibilities  when using the large fonts in this gorgeous and unique stamp set ( they measure about 3cm tall) and you can pair them with any other image  to build up messages for  any occasion. The sky is the limit!

This is the second of 3 blog posts I'm sharing today  to show you  how an idea was changing to create something else. I couldn't execute the initial idea  very well and  the composition looks chaotic so this was the second try.

As in the  other 2 projects I'm sharing today the stamped fonts  are the focus but next week I'll share other card samples using them to create backgrounds.

How I did it?

  • I applied a no line watercolour technique so I stamped first using Antique Linen Distress ink and then I applied watercolour.
  • Instead of using Brusho Crystal Pigments powders as in my previous project  I used  Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. 
  • I reduced the tension of this composition  by stamping  loose leaves here and there and I applied  subtle colours.
  • I also used journaling numbers die set by Neat and Tangled to add the date and I coloured the numbers using Nuvo Grey Gunmetal Mousse.
  • I also embellished using Nuvo Silver drops.
  • I also coloured the front of the notebook ( originally Kraft colour) using a black Nuvo aqua flow pen.
  • I traced a couple of lines using a micro fine uni- ball pen.

Now simply click on "next" to see a final project  I made yesterday also inspired by  the idea  in the first post here.

That's all . I also listed all the supplies  below..
