This is the last week of our month with Inkadinkado stamps. And today I’ve got another chance to share an exclusive look at brand new, not yet released stamps! Stop back by on Wednesday for our last big prize package giveaway! If you missed last weeks Background Cling post click here to check it out.
Inkadinkado’s new Stamp-a-Story sets are so much fun! Each wood mounted stamp sets contain 8 different stamps for building scenes. With themes like the beach, woods, farm, gardens, cityscapes, animals and more. A lot of the sets even mix and match perfectly so the possibilities are really endless. I found the stamps pretty easy to line up but you could use a stamp positioner if you like. I think these sets are great for masking techniques as well, so you can get the look of a lot of depth and layers without any bulk. Cutting out and popping up individual images will also help add dimension to your scenes. In addition to cards these stamps would make terrific borders for travel scrapbook pages.
For the card shown above I used two different sets, the On The Road set and the Lake Scene set. Using different colors of dye based inks I stamped out the trees, road, water and clouds and using a wet paint brush I went over the clouds and water to get a nice watercolor effect. The light house, car and RV were stamped with Staz-On ink and I used more of the dye inks with the wet brush to color them in and popped them up.
The next card I made a forest scene using the Lake Scene set. I think this is a great masculine card, we all know those can be hard to make some times The majority of the Stamp-a-Story sets are perfect for manly cards! Again I used different colors of ink to build my scene, cutting out one of the trees and popping it up with foam tape to give it more dimension. I used a sponge dauber to add ink around the edges and for the sky and grass in my scene too.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peek at some more of the fabulous things Inkadinkado has coming up! And don’t forget to come back here to the stamping blog this Wednesday for a chance to win some of their brand new Stamp-a-Story sets!
