Hey y’all, Kate Kennedy here to bring you a super fun technique that will make you look at your Sweet Stamp Shop stamps in a whole new way! In this video I will use my stamps to create a template. I then will cut out the stamped images creating a stencil. You can stop there and use this stencil on a card front by misting or inking the negative space or what I have done is a bit different. I layered the stencil on top of my card base. To add some color I stamped and used some pattern paper to fill in the negative spaces of the cut out shapes, creating a super fun and dimensional appearance. Add a greeting and a couple of embellishments and the card is complete.
Unfortunately, the stamp set I used is no longer available, but, there are almost identical triangles in the Fall Gratitude set along with some other super fun images.
This technique is so versatile you will be able to use it with a number of stamp sets. Here are some suggestions:
City Scape how fun would a skyline stencil be?
Happy Hour the circles would make such a fun template!
For the greeting I used one of my favorite sets, Monogram It!
