Stamping with Prima...

Stamp addicts beware!

We are ready to show off some very fun and very cool techniques using our fabulous new clear stamps!

Mist cari5 

This book tag comes from the talented Cari Fennell: "I created a tag that can go into a lunch box or back pack for school. It's just a nice little surprise for them to find during their day at school."

Mist cari2 

Cari stamped it with our new paintable stamp (use embossing ink), embossed with clear powder and then heat set it. Add Walnut Stain Distress ink to the background of the tag for a resist look. Spray the flowers with Blue Smoke and Forever Red Perfect Pearl Mists, then layer them with pearl centers and glue them to the tag. The mists work perfectly with our Craftable flowers and lace. They softly add color and shine.

Mist cari4

You can also use the mists on colored Essential flowers. The original color still comes through, but with a sparkly hue.

Stamps alyssaReady for anything

Alyssa McGrew uses a variety of stamps to add loads of texture to her layout!

"Stamps can easily add a lot of visual texture without adding bulkiness.  Stamping on circles and using them to form the tree, for example, gave my layout a lot of extra texture without taking away from the simple design.  Border stamping can be done with almost any stamp, and adds a lot of interest.  I like to stamp a border, and then paint over it with a light mist color to create a more natural look.  Don't forget to deliberately skip a few stamps for even more interest." ~ Alyssa

PR Jaime W she loves 

Jaime Warren shows how you can use Paisley Road in a more subdued manner. Cutting out her white print paper and using it in a creative manner leaves lots of room for a splash of color with other design elements. Jaime stamped with our new Paintable stamps on pink cardstock and used those flowers as a major accents. (Creative and frugal at the same time!)

Pr julie bythesea 

Julie Fei-Fan Balzer brings us a TON of fun tips and techniques on this sweet page!

• Julie decoupaged little tiny bits of a book page onto the brightly-colored Paisley Road flowers.
• She also lightly drew the vine with a pencil and then adhered green paper scraps to act as leaves.  Stitch over the entire thing to create the vine and add the flowers.
• Use gesso to white out a portion of the busy background paper and create some space for the layout to live in.
• To create the title use a pencil to write it out on cardstock and then cut the words out.  (Carefully erase the pencil lines.)
