Good morning friends! I’ve been playing with my stamps and it’s been fun! Stamps are great for filling in white space, making die cuts or just adding a few sentiments here and there to help tell your story!
Disclaimer: “The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with product to create this layout. The opinions I share are solely my own.”
Awhile ago, I received some pretty papers from 49 and Market that The Crafter’s Workshop added to my DT box and I held onto them because they are too pretty to use… but then my sister had a photo shoot of her beautiful little family and I immediately wanted to use the papers and embellishments because they matched the photos perfectly! I love when that happens.
To begin, I added layers of die cut cards and labels onto the base. Then I matted the photo onto patterned paper and added the die cut frame over the photo to frame my sister’s family. Next, I fussy cut the sea shells from a card and popped them onto the framed photo using foam squares to add dimension. I mounted everything down and then I glued the little gems next to it to add some sparkle.
Next, I wanted to add something to the top right-side of the photo so I grabbed the TCW2200 Thank You Hearts Clear Stamps and stamped the hearts in black. I colored them in with alcohol markers and added the xo’s using a white gel pen. Then, I added the epoxy hearts. I love how this cluster of hearts looks on this photo.
I stamped the border of hearts at the bottom just for fun and then colored them in using a light pink marker.
After I glued down the lace across the photos, I felt that I needed to add something else to help pull this layout together. Therefore, I stamped the butterfly from the TCW2210 Uplifting Sentiments Clear Stamps in orange ink onto a scrap piece of patterned paper and then fussy cut the image using scissors. I mounted it to the layout using foam squares. I tucked a few labels, slightly behind the photo to add a few more layers.
Now do you see why you need all of these beautiful stamps?! They sure do come in handy. Thank you for visiting today!
