Our Hummingbird Cafe stamp set works beautifully on paper and on polymer clay. Come along as we make a heart-shaped embellishment and a card with this stamp set (don't forget the pendant!).
White cardstock half-sheet, folded
2 White card stock quarter-sheets
White card stock scrap
Other Tools and Embellishments
Embossing folder of your choice
Colored Pencil - Yellow
Gold Paint Pen - Extra Fine
RST positioning template - Small Shapes
PopIt! Shapes - double-sided foam tape
Heart Pendant (optional)
Take one of the quarter sheets and run it through the embossing folder. While you are using the die cut machine, run a second scrap piece of White paper through the same embossing folder. Set both pieces aside for now.
Take the second quarter sheet and prepare to stamp the following around the border:
Take small scissors and cut out the center of the stamped panel, around the stamped images. Then take the Gold Paint Pen and make squiggly marks about 1/4 inch from the outer border of the stamped panel and 1/4 inch from the inner border of the stamped panel. Then use the Sage ink pad to distress the outer and inner edges of the panel. Glue the stamped panel to the embossed quarter sheet you made earlier (you will attach the pendant, with heart brads, to the embossed panel and then attach that panel to the card base, to hide the backside of the brads). Set aside for now.
Make a Tall Heart embellishment (for detailed instructions, visit our earlier blog, Nature's Path pendant).
Make the sentiment medallion
Using Lapislazuli ink, stamp the Postmarked Love stamp on White paper. Line up the square shape on the Small Shapes positioning template and shade a silhouette with Cyan ink. Cut out the resulting sentiment/diamond and glue it to a slightly larger piece of White card stock that you embossed in the first step of this project. Attach the sentiment medallion to the card with double-sided foam tape.
I sure hope you enjoyed today's blog.
Until next week, Happy Stamping from Susan and the rest of the gang at Rubber Stamp Tapestry!
