Stamping tutorial


Hi Everyone!

Catie here.  I'm going to share a lil something with you ;)
Have you got your hands on the March "Click Click" Kit yet?   Isn't it just FABULOUS!!
I was having a play last night, and used the gorgeous lil Jenni Bowlin Studios ruler stamp in the kit, and whipped up this tutorial to share (it would work just as well with the notebook stamp, which you may have received in your kit).

Here goes:

First, I sprayed some glimmermist on my cardstock, then dropped some big droplets of it randomly on the page, after spraying some into the lid.  Then I dipped the lid into the droplets and stamped circles randomly on the page, as you can see in the pic below.

Are you with me so far?  Next, I got the ruler stamp and after deciding where my photo would go, I took the photo away, and stamped so that part of the stamps would be under my photo, and also at the top right hand corner of the page, where my date will go.  Don't be fussy, the stamping doesn't have to be perfect here.

Next, I layered some patterned paper strips over some of the stamping that will be under the photo.

Next, I stamped the image on a scrap strip, like so.

Then I cut the ruler in half!

And trimmed off the excess...

on both strips...

and stuck them over the stamps in the top right hand corner, kind of layering them with the stamped images, like this:

After putting the rest of the page together, I stamped the date under the stamps and strips at the top of the page, using the Dear Lizzy date stamp (LOVE this stamp!)

And here's what it looks like all together! 

I hope this has given you a couple of ideas, and if you're uncomfortable with stamping, maybe it's inspired you, knowing that the stamping doesn't have to be 'perfect'.  I hope the instructions all make sense!  Please let me know if you have any questions :)

Thanks for looking, and if you have a go, please be sure to show us your work!
