Stretching Your Christmas Stamps with Kelly Latevola


Hello Crafters! 

Do you have a bunch of really beautiful holiday stamps you feel like you can only use during the "season?"
Guess what? You can totally use them anytime. 
Yes! Anytime! 

By changing up the color scheme and pairing my Christmas Poinsettia with an encouraging Love You sentiment it completely changes the feel of the stamped image. You would never know it was originally intended to celebrate the holidays. 


I used a soft gray ink to stamp my poinsettia all over my background. It's like creating your own pattern paper! Using a softer color won't detract from my focal point but it adds just enough to make it interesting.


 I set the background aside and pulled out a fresh piece of white cardstock to stamp my flowers on. I used a copic safe black ink since that's the medium I chose to work with. 

I decided it would be fun to do a little bit of multi-color blending for a bright almost tropical look. I blended V04, RV04, and YR38 for my petals. Now normally I would tell you to match your last number (like Vo4 and RV04) but yellows and a little different. My suggestion there is to keep trying out color combinations until you find one that works with what you have. Don't be afraid to try it. Saturation is key to the blending. 


I stamped my sentiment in Versamark and heat set in white on black cardstock. A few crystal clear sequins finished the card off. 

You can watch the entire process in the video below. 


 

Thanks so much for joining me! 
I hope you are having a wonderful week :)
