Make your own stamp...


Hey,

Happy Saturday!

I am now on holibobs!! And this post will be up before I land in the UK..

Several months ago - I'm talking like before Thanksgiving... I saw a blog post on the Silhouette blog about using it to make clear stamps..

What?! What kind of witchcraft is this!!

I promptly bought some of the stamp material and a special stamp cutting mat for the Silhouette and had a play.

Sadly a few of my creations were an epic fail..but I managed to create two beauties.

Yes, the main card today uses a stamp I MADE...

I love it!!

Due to the nature of the stamp material, you get a kind of splotchy effect, so for these cards I decided that I would use different distress inks, spritz the stamp, stamp it onto watercolour paper and then dry it..

They all came out so different.


Fun times..

I wanted to show you a photo of the stamp, but it didn't come out too well.

I don't use my Silhouette as often as I 'should' but I stopped beating myself up about this, because when I do use him, lots of magic happens - yay!

Have a great weekend, I'll be back tomorrow to show you the other stamp.
