New looks for stamps

Happy Friday.Boy, I love those words. 🙂 This has been one of those weeks. So how about some stamping?

I will admit: This hobby can be expensive. So we have to make good use out of the goodies we have, right? For me that means using my stamps in different ways to get new looks.

THIS “Cling Pop” stamp from Hero Arts is so cool. You can pop out the greeting and put in a different one. Cool, huh? Great for card sets.

But I wanted to change it up even more… by covering up that daisy in the corner with a completely different flower…

So I white heat embossed the label background on some fabulous Basic Grey wood grain paper. I then used my Ink Blending Tool to add Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges to make it pop. Makes a huge difference.

And, since the greeting pops out, I stamped it repeatedly on the notecard’s background.

Love new looks for stamps. If you have a card you have done with a “new look,” I would love to see it!

I have something you just must check out. It is awesome…

My dear friend (who is in college), Britta, has teamed up with another crafty young gal, Marie, to create a blog focused on young crafters. I think this is such a fantastic thing – we need to bring more fresh, young blood into this hobby! 🙂 They have an awesome blog hop going on now. I highly recommend checking it out HERE.

  1. I do agree, Jennifer! I’ve been trying hard to buy stamps that do double, triple and even more duty. Love your ideas and creativity! But I have to say I am hearting the newest Carte Postale!!

  2. I love when we can use the same stamp in several different ways and you have captured this to its best…love the beautiful embossing and that flower just pops right off the card….hope you and your family have a wonderful long weekend Jen…hugs!

  3. Hey Jennifer! I am so excited for this young crafters blog! Because I am a young crafter ,I’m 14 years old. And I make cards for a year now. I LOVE it so much!

  4. I saw this very stamp in the store the other day and just wasn’t sure about it so I passed. I wasn’t sure about all the lines that looked like they were there to be written on! LOL!! I really like how you used it… I always like white embossing.

    And Jennifer… still waiting for your video about making your own buttons. Pleeeeeeeze?????

  5. Hi Jen,
    Wow…Thanks so much for this idea! I bought this set, but haven’t used it yet – I am definitely going to try this and some new techniques with it!
    Have a great day,

  6. I so understand what you mean about being frugil with one’s stamps and supplies in cardmaking. I am always trying to figure out new ways to use a stamp multiple times. It is always a bonus when you have amazing stamps that can provide versatility! Hero Arts provide this for me and I guess that is why I love them. This was the thought that I had in mind when I used the “Time To Stamp!” set, the Old Letter Writing background stamp, and the Everyday Sentiments stamps. So love how my 3 cards turned out. You can check it out here

    Sorry that I couldn’t take in your class Jenn, but things just didnt’ work out for it to happen. So happy to see so many beautiful creations in the HA Flicker group from the students of your class. Hopefully it will be offered again soon. Hope your having a great summer. Hugs.

  7. Oops! I had trouble placing the html code in my last response that I forgot to add that I so love how you repurposed yours stamp and added a different flower. I would say that you have this way of mulity using your stamps down to a science. Love how you embossed the frame in white and so love the vibrancey of your blue flower. I have to say without trying to “rub shoulders” with a National card artist, that your work amazes me on a daily basis and though I don’t comment each day, I go to bed at night thinking about what you shared on your blog. Then think of how I could do the same but with my take on it! Thanks for keeping me up at night with images of stunning cards whirling in my head. Lol. Just kidding! But really there is truth to this confession. Lol. Hugs.

  8. What a great stamp idea. I love the card you created with it. I can’t wait to check out that website for my daughter.
