Words of encouragement – Ink and stamp card

Natalie EllisBlog

I love a good sentiment and ‘Mamamakes’ sentiment stamps are some of the best out there! So I chose ‘Don’t let anybody dull your sparkle’ sentiment from ‘Shine Bright’ jumbo stamp set and started there.

I’m sure everyone has some Tim Holtz distress inks and I can’t blame them! They come into my projects a lot as the blend and the colours are just great to work with. Here I used denim blue and mustard blended together on a piece of circular white card. To build up a mini scene of sorts, I got out my ‘Carabelle Studio – Zinouk du Jardin’ stamp set. They are just incredibly beautiful designs and stamp really well!

The girl stamp is just so cute. I coloured her in with some watercolours and cut her out leaving a white edge around the image.

I always lay out all my elements to see where they should go. When I’m happy with placement, I take a picture (so I don’t forget) and refer to it later on when I’m sticking down.

I embellished with a touch of sparkle embossing powder and glitter, mounted it on black card and stuck it all down to a 4×4 white card base.
