Kellie Stamps DT + WCS Maximize your stamps
This week I am hosting the WCS blog and I am dedicating it to showing you many, many ways to use the latest stamp set from Kellie Stamps! I will share a few of those posts here on my blog aswell.
Today I am sharing a few ways you can use the stamp set Eat more cake fromKellie stamps to make cards, layouts and party decor for birthdays. Let´s go!
These first projects are made by myself. I´ve made a wrapping paper by using a WORD document, setting the paper to horizontal and then adding in the two digital stamps happy and birthday as you can see. For a little bit more interest I chose to make the middle row a bit bigger and use a bright pink. You can easily change the color of the stamps in a digital editing program such as Photoshop. I have used the free website picmonkey.com for that.
I also used Picmonkey for the card shown here. I started out with a 4x6" canvas and added the stamps at the top there several times and changing the color/opacity level on a few to create the faded stamp effect. The cake stamp is an older one from Kellie stamps that is not longer available, but you could add any birthday related stamp or embellishment really.
Here are two fun cards made by the owner her self, Kellie. Here is what she says:
Over the other weekend Diane was sharing her watercolour cards she'd made. It got a lot of us inspired to start creating and so I grabbed out my forgotten watercolour paint set and tried a few things that weren't working. But then I remembered watching a youtube clip from Amy Tan,here. After that is all just came together and I love it.
Tracey made this cool card!
My intention was to make it look like a lightbox. It took way longer than I thought (silhouette dramas) but I am really happy with how it turned out. I have made the messages on acetate that can be removed to give it more of an authentic look.
Diane is the one who made all the fabulous brush script in this stamp set!
I created this layout to celebrate my 35th birthday and there is no better way to make a layout special than with a WHOLE LOT of stamping in my favourite colour: rainbow! I threw some stitching in there as well and I have a very special layout for my special day!
My fellow swedish DT member Magdalena made this fun and different birthday layout.
My daughter turned seven in August so this stamp set for perfect to use for my traditional birthday interview project. I also wrote a bit about her day.
Cecily made two fun party pieces!
To create these coordinating birthday pieces, simply grab some digital stamps and create your sentiment, then attach them to coordinating cardstock or card base and you're ready to roll. I chose the traditional 'Happy Birthday' but there are loads of things you could say!
Make sure the two words are fully attached to each other for easy trimming and then accentuate the black and white words with a pop of color–or confetti like I've done with this card!
Tara made this cute pocket page spread.
I made my own journal cards using the Letterglow app, changing the colors for boys/girls. I am going to be doing an IG giveaway for a pdf of the journal cards.
Isn´t this just a fantastic use of just one stamp set?!
Ok, so we have birthdays down, tune in tomorrow to see some home decor projects!
