New technique for making stamps

I was challenged by Sally at Photocentrics totry a new technique for making my stamp using the Stampmaker.

How to make the stamp
1) Basically you cut a shape and print out a design on your negative film (but here used in positive). 
2) You put the cut out in the clamp, place positive on top (you can make without a design but always use a sheet of clear acetate to stop the polymer bulging through the holes in the acetate), place imagepac on top, close clamp.
3) Expose as normal.
 

I made the stamp using a cut-out feather in black CS and hearts printed on a transparency sheet.







What you need
Cutting machine or punch and a printer to make the stamp. Cardstock, doily, lace, ribbon, wood veneer hearts, Teresa Collins Summer Stories PP, staples, 3D foam, sewing machine, distress ink, stamping ink, and a good pen.

What to do
1) Stamp two feathers on to a piece of CS. Then trace the edges with a black pen

2) Ink the edges and folded a doily around the CS and stitched a border.
3) Cut out the “Story” PP and two banners, inked all edges, and stitched on.  
4) Then staple on a piece of lace.
5) Cut out the blue swirls using a Silhouette or similar and inked the edges.
6) Cut out the PP and a large white CS tag, ink the edges, and stack on top of each other and add the STORY cluster on 3D foam.
7) Then just add the organza ribbon and the wood veneer hearts.
8) Enjoy!


 So would you like to experiment? It is a real fun way of making the stamp and you can combine different patterns and shapes to make several unique stamps.  

Tomorrow I will be back with a page made using the same stamp ♥ Petra
