Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and to share with you some ideas how you can stretch your holiday stamps and use them all year round!
Today I played with a super adorable Eskimo Kisses stamp set filled with lots of fun critters and chose two kissing penguins since they go perfectly with Valentine’s Day that is approaching so fast! And a few “love” theme cards come handy in the stash! Right?!
To start I stamped a few images on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof, colored them with water based markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around.
Here’s the complete list of all TOMBOW markers I used here: n.N79, n.025, n.090, n.133, n.195, n.565, n.606, n.620, n.723, n.725, n.933, n.985.
The change of a color combo is the most easy way to make your stamps look differently from what they originally were meant to be! I prepared a pinky-orange shaker window by ink blending Fossilized Amber and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks on the card front and die cutting a round circle from Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts on an additional white panel, trimmed slightly smaller than the regular A2 size card base. I filled the shaker window with some heart shaped sequins and then sealed everything. Finally I popped the colored elements on a foam tape and added the heat embossed sentiment from the same Eskimo Kisses stamp set.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
