Today’s blog posting is our entry in the Paper Play Challenge of ”Autumn Leaves”, how could we resist featuring PaperArtsy stamps and dies, they are so great to create with. Below is the step by step tutorial to inspire you.
A little info on the PaperArtsy stamps and dies first. The stamps are on EZ mount cling film so this means you can take them straight out of the pack and attach to an acrylic block. The stamp sheets from Paper Artsy are 5″ x 7″ and co-ordinate with their fantastic range of dies. You can cut the dies from a range of products like Card, Metal, Grunge paper, Cardboard etc, then stamp the co-ordinating image on top of the die cut shape. Perfect for embellishments to cards, scrapping layouts and altered art pieces. The links below take you straight to the product on our website.
All stamps used are from PaperArtsy stamp sheet 11o5 for just $24.95 AU you get 9 cling mounted stamps that have multiple uses.
We also used the 3 different sized Oak Leaf dies (small $12.95, medium $16.95 & large $18.95), keep reading to see how we used the medium die cut leaf as it is not on the above stamp plate.
Die cut from natural kraft coloured card stock 2 of each small, medium & large leaves.
On the medium die cut leaf stamp with Archival Ink Jet Black (this ink will not bleed when the leaves are distressed) with the large stamp, you can use any stamp at all and either keep stamping untill the die cut is covered with stamped images or leave with no stamping on at all.
Stamp the corresponding stamps on the large and small leaf from the stamp set.
Use the small background stamp from same set and Distress Ink “Forest Moss” to stamp the entire background of a A5 folded kraft card.
Repeat stamp in Distress Ink “Wild Honey” .
Then repeat in Distress Ink “Rusty Hinge”.
Colour the leaves with the same Distress inks that was used on the background of the card (a foam blending tool is best for this). Shape the leaves and staple the leaves together.
Stick leaves onto card base and add a flower, this one is from the Prima Vermont – Bella Notte Collection.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and have learnt a little about the great range of PaperArtsy stamps and dies!!
Have a great day, Lisa and Elaine @ Destination Art
