Introducing 'One Stamp Wonder' with Jess
I'm excited to be back on the Brutus Monroe blog today to share a new favorite theme. This concept isn't really new to me as I tend to try to get the most out of each and every stamp set I own, but this is the first time I'm putting a name to it. This concept, of using a single stamp set to create a project, shall be known forever more as a 'One Stamp Wonder.' Let's go with it. :)
Sometimes you feel like you're stuck in a rut and you don't know how to make a card idea come together. Sometimes you have too many sets to choose from and it's too overwhelming to complete your project. This 'One Stamp Wonder' challenge will help push you out of your crafty funk and get you creating in no time. There's only one rule - you can only use a single stamp set. You can use as many images from that set as you'd like, but no mixing and matching allowed! Are you ready to give it a try? Check out what I made using this idea today.
I used kraft card stock and treated it with anti-static powder. I used Embossing Ink and my Mini MISTI to stamp out the gorgeous Happy Rose image in the upper left and bottom right corners. I poured Alabaster Embossing Powder over the embossing ink and melted it with my heat tool.
I used the same Embossing Ink on a piece of vellum. This time, I stamped out the sentiment, 'be happy.' I used Raven Embossing Powder for the sentiment and melted it as well. I wrapped my piece of vellum around the kraft card stock and adhered it on the back side.
I mounted my card front on foam tape and adhered it to a white A2 sized card base. I grabbed some white gesso, spritzed it with water, and flicked on some for a cool splattered effect. I also added a few clear sequins to finish off the card.
I hope you love it and that you'll give the One Stamp Wonder a try. I'm excited to see what you create. Be sure to use the hashtag #onestampwonder on social media so I can see what you're up to!
Hugs and love,
