October Stamp of the Month: Poster Tidings Card

11:09



To stamp using the different colours, you can cut up your stamp OR stamp in various colours and cut out the letters and glue them overtop OR do what I do and use post it notes or masking tape to use the masking technique. At the end of the post is a complete shopping list with direct links!

I began my project my mounting the Fall stamp onto my block.  As mentioned before, I am on limited supplies at the moment so I brought this instead of my regular blocks.  I chose honey, autumn terracotta,  cocoa and barn red.

 I covered up the words under AUTUMN.  Inked up Autumn using Barn Red Ink, REMOVED THE TAPE and stamped it on my paper.  The photo on the right shows how I hold my ink pad to ensure ithe ink doesn't go below the masking tape and get on the other letters.

Make sure you have enough room for the whole stamp to fit. Stamp down.  You do not need to clean your stamp between colours!

Next I took another piece of the tape and sectioned off OCTOBER.  I inked it using honey ink. REMOVED THE TAPE, and stamped it by lining up my clear stamp.  Sometimes I find it best to do this directly looking over top (standing up). See below.


I continued stamping using the four colours in a random order.


Using Barn Ink and a Sponge Dauber, I inked the edges to make it blend in with the background paper.

Next I cut out the stamp with my paper trimmer, dry embossed my barn red card front (5.5x4) using my Cuttlebug and glued it all together!
